Half the US population will live in 8 statesOur country's population is shifting, which could have a dramatic effect on politics.
That's the subject of a thought-provoking Washington Post article, "In about 20 years, half the population will live in eight states," and 70% of Americans will live in 15 states. "Meaning 30 percent will choose 70 senators. And the 30% will be older, whiter, more rural, more male than the 70 percent." Of course, as the census shows the population shifting, the makeup of the House will also change dramatically.
Maybe you think that's good, maybe you think that's bad. It certainly leads to interesting political times. Maybe even a bit of chaos, emerging.
