There may be problems elsewhere as well, however. Another area will have a significant negative influence on Republicans in elections. It hasn’t gotten much attention, but it has to if we’re going to fix the issue.
“The U.S. Census Bureau has acknowledged in a stunning report that it undercounted the population of six states and overcounted the population of eight states in the 2020 census.”
“All but one of the states that were overcounted are blue, while all but one of the states that were undercounted are red.”
“The Electoral College and legislative representation will be distorted by those expensive mistakes. It means that the state of Florida was cheated out of two extra seats it should have received when the Census Bureau redistributed the House of Representatives, Texas lost another seat, Rhode Island and Minnesota each kept a representative they should not have, and Colorado was given a new representative it didn’t deserve.”
Do you mean that it significantly shorted the red states of legislators (not to mention federal cash), which would have a negative effect on the elections? Wow, how did it occur? Particularly if they didn’t occur during the last census? Whose state has the largest overcount, three guesses?
“The bureau interviews a significant number of homes nationwide after each census, and the interview results are compared to the data from the first census. The census bureau overestimated the population of Delaware, Hawaii, Massachusetts, New York, Minnesota, Ohio, Utah, and Rhode Island, according to the 2020 survey. Delaware, the home state of Vice President Joe Biden, had the most error, with a 5.45% overcount.”
“Arkansas, Illinois, Florida, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Texas were among the states with undercounted populations. Arkansas had the most undercount inaccuracy, with a population count that was wrong by 5.04%.”
“According to the first census, Florida just need 171,500 extra citizens to secure a new congressional seat. However, the poll reveals that Florida was undercounted by more than 750,000 persons. According to the agency, Texas merely needed 189,000 additional residents to secure a second congressional seat. According to the poll, Texas’ population was undercounted by 560,319 people.”
“The initial census estimate said that Minnesota would have lost one congressional seat in reapportionment if it had 26 less persons; however, the survey reveals that the state was overcounted by around 216,971 people. Similarly, if the Census Bureau had counted 19,000 fewer people, Rhode Island would have lost a seat. The state was overcounted by over 55,000 people, it turns out.”
This is a miscalculation that not only has a severe effect on current midterm elections, but also on all future elections and federal funding distribution for the next 10 years until the next census. They just had one task, and they utterly failed it. In order to find out how this occurred, ensure that it doesn’t happen again, and ensure that the proper measures are implemented, Congress has to call individuals out for it. Unfortunately, I no longer believe that politics isn’t impacting these things given how we’ve seen Democratic strategists seem to penetrate places that are meant to be impartial.
