89% of House seats are considered safely in the hands of one party. The rest, excluding those that significantly "favor" a party, constitute only 29 seats. Coupled with district gerrymandering-- which groups like-minded ideologies, either conservatives or liberals-- these safe seats discourage members from working together, lest they be labeled too moderate and lose their seat next election.
