Census Bureau Defrauded Elections

There Was a Huge "Mistake" in the 2020 Census... Guess Which Party It Favored?


There was a major problem with the 2020 Census, and most people probably
haven't heard about it, even though it has enormous implications. At the
end of May, the Census Bureau admitted that it miscounted 14 states in the
2020 Census.

Why didn't the media make a big stink about this story? Maybe it was
overshadowed by the recent mass shootings, that's certainly a possibility,
but I have another theory.

Here are the states that the Census acknowledged it overcounted: Hawaii,
Delaware, Rhode Island, Minnesota, New York, and Massachusetts.

Here are the states that the Census acknowledged it undercounted: Texas,
Illinois, Florida, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Arkansas.

Well, gee, isn't that interesting. Does it seem like a mere bizarre
coincidence that the overcounted states all voted for Biden in 2020, and
five of the six undercounted states for Trump in 2020?

"Last week’s Census Bureau announcement of serious errors will impact
the next decade’s congressional apportionment and delegations, and play
a crucial role in the presidential race," explained Kristin Tate at The
Hill. "Given the nature of the mistakes, Democrats could hang onto the
presidency under particularly controversial circumstances due to
publicly-acknowledged errors."

  The changes will impact national politics in a dramatic fashion. The
  2020 census led to significant changes to congressional seats
  apportioned to states. Texas gained two congressional seats, while North
  Carolina, Florida, Montana, Colorado and Oregon each gained one. New
  York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois and
  California each lost one seat in Congress. There was significant
  surprise that population growth winners such as Texas and Florida
  didn’t gain more seats. With the possible exception of Illinois not
  losing a seat, the likely effects of an accurate count would have
  overwhelmingly aided red states. Simply put, the revised figures show
  that (mostly) red states had even quicker relative population growth
  compared to the rest of the country — and especially compared to
  (mostly) blue states. It is entirely possible that undercounted states
  could have gained at least one seat in Congress, while overcounted
  states may have lost at least one each.

Not only is it suspicious that the errors occurred, but as Tate explains,
so is the timing of the admission of the error. "Had states known the true
figures within the past year, the redistricting process would have been
very different for the miscounted states. Not only are the number of seats
per state affected, but the district lines are as well. In addition, the
Electoral College determines the weight per state based on the total
representatives and senators. The loss or gain of a single seat affects
two Electoral College votes — the one gained by one party, and thus lost
by the other."

And there's nothing that anyone can do about it. It is too late to correct
the faulty reapportionment, barring a Supreme Court challenge.

Are we expected to believe these were honest mistakes and not deliberate?

Americans have already lost faith in our election system, and now we have
reason to suspect politics has tainted the Census.
