Analyzing the new North Carolina map from a nonpartisan perspective

The North Carolina General Assembly recently passed a new Congressional district map. While it happened, I was following very regular and map-filled updates on the topic from Stephen Wolf, a Daily Kos elections expert. He has done a partisan analysis of the map, forecasting a likely 8–5 split.

The map passed by the NC GA, which will be in effect for the upcoming 2020 congressional elections.
