Via Goddards’, we can see the growing importance of the Hispanic vote. The Electoral College will be an even harder nut to crack for Democrats in 2012.
According to a new Election Data Services prediction, if the 2010 reapportionment were held today, six states would gain one seat apiece in the House of Representatives — Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Nevada, and
Utah — and Texas would gain two seats. Those seats would come from seven states losing one seat each — Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Missouri, New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
“The states of Georgia, Nevada, Louisiana, and Massachusetts are new states [this year] on the list of changes.”
Dems are going to need to compete in Arizona and Nevada.
