Happening Now: The Republican Party is the beneficiary of census results that were just released and show the GOP should pick up seats in the House of Representatives from traditionally Republican states while traditionally Democrat states lost seats. This will result in a significant gain of seats in both the Electoral College and the House of Representatives.
“The U.S. Census Bureau on Monday announced that six states, mostly in the South and Mountain regions, would gain seats in the U.S. House of Representatives based on updated population data results, while seven states were set to lose one seat apiece,” according to Fox News.
“Texas will gain two seats, the most out of any U.S. state. Colorado, Florida, Montana, North Carolina and Oregon each gained one seat…
“On the other hand, seven states, including California, Illinois, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia, were set to lose one seat in the chamber each.
“Both New York and California experienced negative net domestic migration, with more people moving out of the states than moving in over the past 10 years.”
