Joe Biden found one awful way to rig politics for the next decade
Republicans are once again crying foul.
They think they have a smoking gun showing how Biden planned to pad the Democrats’ chances to win in 2022 and 2024.
Joe Biden found one awful way to rig politics for the next decade.
When the reapportionment numbers from the 2020 census came out, political observers were stunned.
Republicans netted a gain of just three new Congressional seats in states where they controlled the redistricting process when everyone thought Republicans would pick up at least double that number.
Writing at Townhall.com, former Trump advisor Stephen Moore pointed to something fishy.
The Biden administration revised the December population counts to add 2.5 million Americans to the count in blue states and subtract 500,000 Americans from total in red states.
Most all of the revisions to the original estimates have moved in one direction: Population gains were added to blue states, and population losses were subtracted from red states. The December revisions in population estimates under the Biden Census Bureau added some 2.5 million blue-state residents and subtracted more than 500,000 red-state residents. These population estimates determine how many electoral votes each state receives for presidential elections and the number of congressional seats in each state.
Deep Blue New Jersey did not lose a Congressional District.
In fact, several blue states had their population estimates revised upward.
Moore wrote that Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont all saw population gains in the 2020 census while red states like Arizona, North Carolina and South Carolina all saw census counts lower than their estimates.
Republicans are demanding answers about these shady census revisions and if they were influenced by politics.
