The new 2020 Census apportionment counts for representation in the U.S. Congress were announced on Monday.
As many expected, a population shift in Michigan, Ohio and Illinois have all three states losing one seat in the House of Representatives.
Nationally, Texas gained two and Florida, Colorado, Montana, North Carolina and Oregon each gained one. California, New York, Pennsylvania and West Virginia also lost a seat.
If the 2020 Presidential Election had been held with these new counts, Biden would have won with 303 Electoral votes instead of 306, which is still slightly better than Democrats had expected from the census results.
Overall the new numbers suggest a smaller demographic shift than was expected. The U.S. population is now more than 331 million people. Indiana’s population has increased by 4.7% since 2010, reaching nearly 6.8 million people.
