Snooze, you lose—and blue states just lost big to red states.
Blue states have been pushing liberal policies, and what has happened as a result? People are fleeing in big numbers.
They were warned for years the impact this would have on them, but they ignored the coming red wave until it was too late.
And now the numbers are in. From Fox News:
The U.S. Census Bureau on Monday announced that six states, mostly in the South and Mountain regions, would gain seats in the U.S. House of Representatives based on updated population data results, while seven states were set to lose one seat apiece.
Texas will gain two seats, the most out of any U.S. state. Colorado, Florida, Montana, North Carolina and Oregon each gained one seat.
On the other hand, seven states, including California, Illinois, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia, were set to lose one seat in the chamber each.
That’s devastating for blue states, and could soon tip the balance of power in Congress in 2022.
The big blue states of California and New York actually lost people over the last decade, meaning more people moved out than moved in.
Texas, on the other hand, has been seeing a huge influx.
And red state Republicans have made it clear: if you’re going to move to our state, leave your politics behind in the ruined state you came from.
Democrats are pushing hard in Washington to add states to the Union and expand mail-in voting to increase their grasp on power in Washington.
But all of that will mean nothing if they can’t keep voters in their states.
This is a major loss for Democrats that will be felt on Capitol Hill very soon.
Are you glad red states picked up seats after the census?
- Census counts show Texas and Florida picked up seats while California and New York lost seats.
- This shift in Congress could make it easier for Republicans to gain power in 2022.
