New York Loses House Seat Over Difference of Only 89 People

• Dan Bongino

Yesterday we learned how the 2020 Census would affect the composition of the House of Representatives.

Texas picked up two seats, while Florida, Colorado, Montana, North Carolina, and Oregon picked up one. California, Illinois, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia all lost one each. Overall, states that voted for Biden lost a net three seats.

The shifting of seven seats among thirteen states represents the smallest number of seats changing hands in any decade since the current method of apportionment was adopted in 1941.
