"With the release of the 2010 Census data, the decennial rejiggering of the nation’s political map has begun. Eight states will be gaining seats in the US House of Representatives, while 10 states’ House delegations will shrink. Among the winners are Texas, Utah and Washington. It stands to reason that states with more people are allotted more House seats. It would likewise stand to reason if the states losing House seats had all lost residents since 2000. But except for Michigan, all of the reapportionment losers gained population over the past decade." (12/26/10)
