How Republicans retained the House when they got less Votes than Dems?

I am baffled by how is it that Republicans retained the control of the House of Representatives when they got less Votes than Democrats? I mean they got less Votes than Democrats not just in the Presidential elections but actually less Votes in the House of Representatives elections as Wapo reported. So how in GODs name is it that Republicans have more seat in the House if they got less votes than Dems?

It is because the Billionaire gang behind Republican lunatics can much easier buy a House of Representative district than they can buy a whole Senate set aside the Presidency.
And because the Republican Con Job on US is now being finally realized by more and more of the American people, then the Billionaire gang behind Republican lunatics has no choice but to focus their Billions on keeping their Republican whoreeeees in the House at any cost so that is why.

It is called total corruption. That is GOP retained the House majority by not having gotten more Votes, but by having gerrymandered the districts to give them victory for a given House seat even though the majority of the people of that State/Country have Voted against GOP.

Well Washington Postโ€™s Dan Keating did the work and found that Democrats got 54,301,095 votes while Republicans got 53,822,442. That is a popular vote win for the Democrats.
Here:

So the way that GOP retained the House is through a very corrupt process known as gerrymandering.
