Something to think about for all you who are running around being all paranoid and stupid about the census
Republicans will lose many seats in Congress due to right-wing paranoia about the census and refusal to fill out census forms, gloats the liberal web site Daily Kos.
The number of Congressional districts a state gets is based on how many of its citizens return completed census forms. Because voters in conservative states are completing and returning census forms at lower rates than voters in liberal states, conservative states will lose many seats in the House of Representatives that they would otherwise gain due to increases in their population.
Republican-leaning “Red States” will also lose out on billions of dollars in federal funds, which are apportioned based largely on population.
Think about that when you are complaining about
you’re your liberal / progressive / socialist / communist overlords.
