doubtful.

even in the conservative "cop & fireman" 41st ward on the far NW side (82% white and the only ward in the city with a republican alderman) trump came closer to winning there than any other ward in chicago, but he still lost by 9 points.

looking at the precinct map results, i don't know how you'd gerrymander that one even more to make up a 9 point deficit.

the city of chicago made it very clear that it despises the overgrown oompa-loompa. even in the most conservative ward in the whole city, it still wasn't close.
