We now know which states will lose and gain representation next year, but the real Census-politics story won't be written for a few months, when we find out how many Hispanic voters the country has gained.
The answer will affect more than just House seats: It could put typically red Sun Belt states in the blue column for presidential elections to come.
Census officials have been predicting a sharp rise in the Hispanic population, based on the 2000 population numbers, for the past few years. They'll release the 2010 race/origin breakdowns in February or March, confirming or denying their yearly best guesses.
Republicans should be happy about reapportionment, at first glance.
...I feel one of the reasons that Hispanics are registering to vote in record numbers is because of the GOPs perceived anti Hispanic stance....

This is typical Democrat/Progressive think. Hispanics ARE NOT DUMB. They are a lot more politically savvy than many Americans this is based on the ones I have talked to. and I have a lot of Hispanic customers.
Democrats seem to think they can make the Hispanics blind puppets as they did the Blacks. I do not think so guys. They have already had their eyes opened to dirty politics and they are not going to trust blindly like the blacks have. (And yes I have a lot of Black customers too)
