2010 Census and Redistricting

2010 Census and Redistricting

Results of the 2010 Census point to good news for Republicans. Join us to discuss how and why population shifts in Texas, Ohio, Florida and many other states could reshape the political landscape.

Later today the U.S. Census Bureau will release the first official results from the 2010 census. The report will include the nation’s total resident population and congressional apportionment totals for each state. Ten states are forecasted to lose congressional seats. Eight may pick up at least one additional seat. In state capitals across the country, Republicans have considerably more power, and this clout may well come in handy when new congressional district lines are drawn. Political analysts join us to talk about the U.S census data and how the overall political landscape may be shifting. Please join us.
