Districts in the Deep South won by President Obama, all majority-minority
The Voting Rights Act saw one of its main enforcement mechanisms gutted last summer in the controversial and partisan 5-4 Supreme Court decision Shelby County v. Holder. However, even without section 5 requiring many jurisdictions to pre-clear changes to the voting process section 2 remains.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Republicans, looking for ways to turn November’s congressional elections into a referendum on President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law, are trying to portray Obamacare as a danger to Medicare.
The aim is to court one of the biggest and most reliable voting blocs in midterm elections, senior citizens and people near retirement, by depicting Republicans as defenders of the federal healthcare program for 42 million seniors.
It’s an attempt to turn the tables on Democrats, who in the 2012 presidential election attacked Republican Mitt Romney over Republican proposals to overhaul Medicare.
“You’d have to be a blind man in a dark room not to see the political implications of Obamacare in general and now specifically with respect to Medicare,” said Brock McCleary, former polling director for the Republican National Committee.
The strategy faces an early test in Tuesday’s special U.
Neil deGrasse Tyson, host of Fox's documentary series Cosmos, said on Sunday that the news media should stop trying to "balance" the debate on scientific issues by hosting people who deny science.
In an interview on CNN's Reliable Sourcs, host Brian Stelter asked Tyson how to go about brokering a peace in the "war on science."
"Our civilization is built on the innovation of scientists and technologists and engineers who have shaped everything that we so take for granted today," Tyson pointed out.
Fox host Chris Wallace asked former Secretary of State Robert Gates to comment on the appropriateness of President Obama's decision to "take the weekend off in the middle of" the developing crisis in Ukraine. But in 2008, Wallace struck a much different tone during Russia's invasion of Georgia, mentioning then-President Bush's trip to his Texas ranch without a hint of criticism.
On the March 9 edition of Fox Broadcasting Co.'s Fox News Sunday, Wallace joined the media in implicitly criticizing Obama for spending the weekend in Florida with his family.
Despite President George W. Bush taking a vacation during the 2008 Russian invasion of Georgia, the media ignored Bush's trip while questioning the appropriateness of President Obama's weekend trip to Florida during the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

Fox's Wallace Questions "Optics" Of Obama "Playing Golf In Florida." During a Fox News Sunday interview with former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, host Chris Wallace asked Gates "in terms of optics, do you think it's helpful for President Obama to take the weekend off in the middle of what you call a crisis to be playing golf in Florida?"

Breitbart: "While Crimea Burns, Obama Golfs." In a March 9 article, Breitbart.com attacked Obama's trip to Florida:
Question: What does Barack Obama do while ineffectually dealing with the Russia and Ukraine fight over the Crimea, watching that region burn, and also ordering the cutting of funds for missile defense for Israel while enabling Iran to continue heading for nuclear bomb-making capability, thus heating the Middle East to the boiling point?
