Leftists will pull out any trick in the book, even making “accidental mistakes,” to give Democrats every advantage possible in elections.
Isn’t it funny how these types of “mistakes” seem to always favor the Left?
Now the U.S. Census Bureau may have made an “error” that could cost Republicans their shot at the majority in Congress.
The U.S. Census Bureau has released a report admitting they made massive errors in the population counts in 14 states.
These counts – among other things like federal funding allocations – determine how many Congressional seats and Electoral College votes a state receives.
According to the report, it turns out the Census may have been off in its count by 7% in those 14 states.
That’s a large enough error to change the allocation of Congressional seats and Electoral College votes.
“No census is perfect,” Census Bureau Director Robert Santos said. “And the PES (Post-Enumeration Survey) allows us to become more informed about the 2020 Census by estimating what portion of the population was correctly counted, where we missed people and where some people were counted that shouldn’t have been.”
And where did they miss people?
The PES found the following states were significantly undercounted: Arkansas (5.04%), Florida (3.48%), Illinois (1.97%), Mississippi (4.11%), Tennessee (4.78%) and Texas (1.92%).
Looking at those states, you’ll notice, five out of the six are Red States.
The balance of the 14-error states was made up of statistically-significant overcounts in: Delaware (5.45%), Hawaii (6.79%), Massachusetts (2.24%), Minnesota (3.84%), New York (3.44%), Ohio (1.49%), Rhode Island (5.05%) and Utah (2.59%).
You’ll notice the exact opposite trend in the over count – as six out of the eight are Blue States, and the two Red States on the list have two of the three smallest over estimates of the eight.
This supposed error almost entirely benefits Blue States and the Democrat Party on the whole.
In fact, the so-called mistake is costing, by the Census Bureau’s own admission, Red States three Congressional Seats and three Electoral College votes.
Those three seats could be the difference in which party controls Congress following the 2022 midterms.
And those three Electoral College votes could end up deciding who is the President of the United States following the 2024 elections.
The PES following the 2010 Census found no statistically significant miscounts.
And due to a 1999 Supreme Court ruling – and the fact that the House has already certified the 2020 Census results – the allocation of Congressional Seats and Electoral Votes can not be changed.
