      Notes:
  • 'Reapportionment' values include House seats only.  Add 2 to get the electoral votes for each state.
  • 'EV change' shows how the 2008 election would turn out after reapportionment, all else being equal.
  • The 'Redistricting process' column is color-coded:
            Republicans control the process.
            Democrats control.
            Split-party control.
            At-large district or non-partisan control.
  • 'House change' is the projected change to the balance of power in the House according to Charlie Cook's Political Report.
