Census Numbers Released, GOP Gains
12:23 PM, Dec 21, 2010 • By JOHN MCCORMACK
The new census numbers are out, and they show the GOP will make a substantial net gain of congressional seats/electoral votes.
States gaining seats/electoral votes:
States losing seats/electoral votes:
Another way to break it down in terms of its impact on the 2012 presidential election:
GOP states—those that voted Republican in the past 3 presidential elections—made a net gain of 6 seats/EVs:
States that voted Democratic in past three presidential elections had a net loss of 6 seats/EVs:
And swing states broke even:
Update: I initially incorrectly wrote that Democratic seats had a net loss of 6 seats. New York as losing 2 seats, not 1.
