Description

According to a recent paper by William H. Frey of the Brookings Institution, three states, Arizona, Florida and Texas, will be the overwhelming beneficiaries of Electoral College and congressional redistricting over the next twenty-five years. According to this paper, Arizona will gain five seats / votes, Florida will gain nine seats / votes, and Texas will gain eight seats / votes. No other state will even gain three seats. In fact, these three states will take home two-thirds of the thirty-three seats that all states with rising populations will receive.
