Fascinating graphics. The detailed ones are worth the click. The final story:

This is what the 2012 electoral map would have looked like had each state apportioned its electors using [the GOP’s new] rules.

The GOP controls enough statehouses that I imagine their plan will succeed. And they’ve gerrymandered the districts so that they will continue to control the House of Representatives (again, by controlling statehouses, which do the gerrymandering draw Congressional district lines.)
