2010 Census Will Change The House...

... and the electoral college.

Twelve seats are expected to change from one state to another. Interestingly, the states that will gain seats are lower tax/ right-to-work states while the states losing seats are higher tax/ union control states. Who could have seen that coming?

Here are the latest projections:


Texas will add 4 seats, Florida gets 2 more, while one each will be added to Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, South Carolina, Utah, and Washington.


New York and Ohio will both lose 2 seats while these states will each shed 1: Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
