There is something very fishy about the new 2020 Census Bureau data determining which states picked up seats and which states lost seats.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.

These population estimates determine how many electoral votes each state receives for presidential elections and the number of congressional seats in each state.Is this a mere coincidence?
