Here is the enacted map and stats, and my Michigan rule map and stats.  The game with the Michigan rule map of course vis a vis the 2011 enacted map, was to share the Pub wealth of WI-05 with other Pub held CD's that could use some Pub padding. Sesenbrenner was a pig.

I agree that the Pubs missed the mark here, though perhaps not so much as in KS. You also shore up the Pub districts better against a wave since the passed map puts everything at risk except WI-5. I still find the amount of possible partisan manipulation with pure MI rules higher than I like.

I took my preferred county plan and added microchops to even the population (within 100). Not counting the microchops it only splits Milwaukee and only between two CDs. It's something like I would expect a commission to do. It definitely helps the Dems in this case compared to the passed map, but the result is closer to the overall partisan lean of the state. I've included both the approximate PVI from 08 to match your numbers as well as the true PVI with both 04 and 08.



CD 1: (08 +1.7) PVI D+1.7
CD 2: (08 +15.5) PVI D+14.7
CD 3: (08 +3.2) PVI D+3.4
CD 4: (08 +17.6) PVI D+16.7
CD 5: (08 -9.9) PVI R+10.6
CD 6: (08 -5.7) PVI R+7.8
CD 7: (08 +1.7) PVI D+1.9
CD 8: (08 +0.1) PVI R+1.5

Technically it was Paul Ryan and his staff that seems to have taken a lead on the mapping this decade. Sensenbrenner was eclipsed as the delegation point man.
