Report on Redistricting Poll

 Former U. S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates speaking at the Richmond Forum, January 15, 2012:

“We have lost the ability to execute even the most basic functions of government,” much less solve the difficult problems necessary for the nation to regain its confidence and credibility on the world stage, Gates said.

Gates drew applause at the Richmond Forum when he blamed deep partisanship for “the ongoing dysfunction of our political system.”

Gates called for an overhaul of the districting system to end the highly partisan redistricting that has resulted in lopsided victories and safe districts where lawmakers do not have to appeal to independent or centrist voters.

Through the Cold War and nine administrations representing both political parties, Gates said, the nation’s policies remained constant through bipartisanship and the sort of compromise that has been lost today.
