2010 is the decennial census...Massachusetts is going to lose a seat in the House by all projections, down from 10 seats to 9 while Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire stay the same. The big losers appear to be "blue states": in additon to the 1 from Massachusetts, New York loses 2 and Pennsylvania, New Jersey, California, Minnesota, Michigan, and Illinois lose 1 each. "red states" see Louisiana, Iowa, Missouri losing 1 and Ohio losing 2. The big winners in the census may be "red" states: Texas may gain 4, Arizona 2, Georgia, Utah, North Carolina, South Carolina, Nevada 1. Florida may be a swing state with 2 more seats gain.
