You're being silly. UK Truth's main point(correct me if I'm wrong UKTRUTH) was:
But the left are voting on one issue. Stop Trump. It's their motivation. It has no rhyme or reason, no depth. Just hatred.
I don't believe he was making a Pro or against that, just stating his opinion. You're making up points for him and acting like if he stated them
Quite Frankly I don't even think UKTruth is a trump supporter so it's been fun watching you two go back and forth

That word salad about what happened in the 2012 redistricting doesn't tell you anything of value.
Perhaps this picture will help: Arizona 8th map Notice that it is centered on Sun City and Surprise. That is Joe Arpaio's heartland. The Surprise Tea Party is the group that turned Arpaio into a birther. Sun City is square mile after square mile of retiree homes and trailer parks.
Can you see where Maricopa County is? The counties are not labeled on that map.
Here is a county map. Arizona County Map
Here is a breakdown of all of en.wikipedia.org... There are FIVE congressional districts covering the Phoenix metropolitan area, and the rest of Maricopa County is split between two other congressional districts.
Yes, most of Arizona is nominally 'conservative'. The more 'liberal' hotbeds are in Southern Arizona (Tucson) and North Central Arizona (Flagstaff). But the state overall is within 5% of being 'balanced' these days. A 25% swing to the Democrats would see it turn fairly dark blue.
