'The View' Host Blames GOP Senate Wins on Gerrymandering, ABC Political Correspondent Corrects Her

Democrats took back the House of Representatives during Tuesday night's midterms, but lost seats in the Senate. ABC News political analyst Matthew Dowd joined "The View" ladies at the Hot Topics table to explain the massive voter turnout and election results. Joy Behar offered some interesting analysis of her own.

With over 110 million people showing up to vote Tuesday, it is now the highest midterms turnout in history. The Republicans had geography on their side, while the Democrats benefitted from their growing demographics, Dowd explained. Behar seemed to like when Dowd mentioned Democrats won the Senate "popular vote," but when he mentioned that they lost Senate races in red areas, she interjected to explain that was only "because of gerrymandering." Dowd quickly corrected her.

"Well that's not gerrymandering - that's the Constitution," he said. "The districts are gerrymandered, but the states are part of the Constitution."

Certainly, some counties in some states have their share of gerrymandering controversies. But those lines don't affect Senate races. Twitter users mocked Behar for not knowing "basic civics."
