This is another very big deal in elections moving forward.

Link

It is never good to lose seats and it is the first time ever for California to be moving backward.



Based on Monday’s figures, Texas is poised to gain two congressional seats, and Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Montana, North Carolina and Oregon are expected to gain one. Eight states are expected to lose one seat: California, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and West Virginia.

The actual reapportionment calculation will take place by December 2020, with its details worked out in 2021. Each state will redraw its legislative maps, and those that have more than one congressional seat will redraw districts as well.

The shift of political power away from the Northeast and Midwest toward the Southeast and Southwest is the result of residents flocking to states with warm weather, strong job growth, cheaper housing and, in some cases, lower taxes.


5 States will gain 1 seat and 1 state, Texas, is poised for 2 new ones.

If you look at those states gaining, Trump won 5 of those 7.
If you look at those losing seats, Trump won 3 of 8.

The shift that is already starting is showing other cracks. This is a good confirmation of why those losing seats did not want citizenship on the new census.

Yeah, housing is cheaper where it is warmer because of less heating bills. This global warming is supposed to warm up the planet, people up north are getting frustrated, it isn't happening fast enough.. California and some other states have created really high costs of livings and are taxing the hell out of their people, people have the choice to move out of that state to somewhere where they can live better for less. The people in charge of some of the states are totally disconected from the working class who work and still cannot afford to pay those high costs created by state government causing a high cost of living in the area.

The Great American Experiment is working, is all.

Different states with their own sovereignty making different rules and then see what works for the State.

For the States that burden the citizenry with onerous taxes, the citizenry has a choice.

Vote with your feet.

One less vote in house matters sometimes....and it will soon.

I read someplace that California for the first time since the year 1900 has more people leaving than moving to California. Many of the welfare states with their onerous tax and spend policies are losing population when those who can, get up and get to heck out. There are other states that should take notice but they have buried themselves in other peoples taxes/money so deeply they can not dig themselves out of the debt they have created with false socialist ideas and promises.

Got an actual link to the Wall Street Journal article and the actual report? Your link takes me to Breitbart, and their link to WSJ takes me to a phishing site.

The 2020 census isn't out yet, and it's going to take some time to calculate the results, so I don't understand why your source says the redistricting will take place in January of 2020. What data are they using?

Since the link referenced the data is from the US Census Bureau I went there to see what the latest updates were. Apparently in July 2019 they did an estimated data set on populations.

So, it is obvious that based on those estimates, who ever did the original article determined (by creating a data table) that certain states may gain or lose congressional seats due to estimated population data. These are only estimates and until the official 2020 census is completed will not change any congressional seats based on this est data until 2021.

Edit add: any redistributing of districts are often done at state level due to individual city/state population changes and state laws. So it is possible for some states to expand or add a district before official national census data.

Thanks.

I have to admit that this is a little over my head, and I suspect that the census has become a political tool, what with Wilbur Ross scandal, and all. So, I'm not sure what to think about this "news".

I'm having a hard time believing that any state's populations will have dropped since the 2010 Census.

Let us know when that starts.
Wall? Nope.
Healthcare? Nope.
Infrastructure? Nope.
Tax breaks? if you are rich. If not ... Nope.
I am comfortable... and it didn't change a thing for me.

Winning must look like something different to you than me.

Maybe if he set his mind on helping the american people instead of serving himself.
But we both know that will never happen.

Ha ha okay bud.

Except that in these warm places we turn the air conditioner on in April and it stays on until late September.
Electricity is more expensive than fuel oil.
You are kidding yourself if you think living where it is warm saves you money.

Fact the cheapest place to live is in Indiana. In the middle where it gets cold.
