    Default US Census Bureau is in on the “STEAL 2022 & 2024” Campaigns

    Census Bureau Admits Overcounting 7 Blue States, Just 1 Red State

    In a shocking report, the U.S. Census Bureau recently admitted that it overcounted the populations of eight states and undercounted the populations of six states in the 2020 census.

    All but one of the states overcounted is a blue state, and all but one of the undercounted states is red.

    Those costly errors will distort congressional representation and the Electoral College. It means that when the Census Bureau reapportioned the House of Representatives, Florida was cheated out of two additional seats it should have gotten; Texas missed out on another seat; Minnesota and Rhode Island each kept a representative they shouldn’t have; and Colorado was awarded a new member of the House it didn’t deserve.

    These harmful errors also mean billions in federal funds will be misallocated. Funding for many federal programs is distributed to the states based on population. Overcounted states will now receive a larger share of federal funds than they are entitled to, at the expense of the undercounted states.

    The Census Bureau has not explained how it got the 2020 census so wrong. This is particularly troublesome because the bureau reported an error rate of 0.01% in the 2010 census—an overcount of only 36,000 people, a statistically insignificant mistake.

    The 2020 errors were discovered through the “2020 Post-Enumeration Survey.”

    After each census, the bureau interviews a large number of households across the country and then compares the interview answers with the original census responses. The 2020 survey showed that the bureau overcounted the population in Delaware, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island, and Utah. The largest mistake was in President Joe Biden’s home state of Delaware, which was overcounted by 5.45%.

    The states whose populations were undercounted were Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Texas. The largest error in the undercount was in Arkansas, where the population count was off by 5.04%.

    The original census reported that Florida needed only 171,500 more residents to gain another congressional seat. Yet the survey shows that Florida was undercounted by over three-quarters of a million people. The bureau also said that Texas needed only 189,000 more people to gain another congressional seat. The survey shows that Texas was undercounted by 560,319 residents.

    Minnesota, according to the original census report, would have lost a congressional seat during reapportionment if it had 26 fewer residents; the survey shows the state was overcounted by 216,971 individuals. Similarly, Rhode Island would have lost a seat if the Census Bureau had counted 19,000 fewer residents. It turns out that the state was overcounted by more than 55,000 individuals.

    The Associated Press quoted John Marion of Common Cause in Rhode Island admitting that the state would benefit from this mistake, including “more representation in Congress.”

    Unfortunately, the federal statutes governing the census and apportionment provide no remedy to correct this problem. And it would be very difficult to devise an acceptable remedy this far after the fact.

    The census is geared to providing a count of the population on one specific date, in this case April 1, 2020. A remedy that involved ordering the Census Bureau to conduct another actual recount in the 14 affected states—a complex, expensive undertaking—would provide numbers on a different date than the original census, whose population totals would still be in effect for the rest of the states. This would raise fundamental fairness issues, given the high mobility of our population.

    The concept of conducting a new census of the entire nation also seems impractical.

    One thing, however, must be done. Congress needs to use its oversight authority to investigate and determine why these errors happened, particularly since they didn’t occur in the 2010 census. Lawmakers should then make the changes necessary to ensure this does not happen again.

    Not to defend what might be an egregious and nefarious act but; having worked the 2020 census as a supervisor I have some idea what might have happed if it's an actual mistake and not intentional.

    Due to the 'Rona our scheduled personnel training and enumeration collection start dates were put postponed four months. From early April to early July. The data being collected had to be submitted by the first of October for collation, extrapolation and the final result reported to Congress by the first of December. We had to train our people and get them in the field ASAP. We were conducting training updates in the field during data collection. The Bureau was offering us some nice bonus incentives to work overtime (Even though it was stated from the beginning overtime was not going to happen) in order to get this done on time. Add to that personnel were woefully short staffed and whole areas were under covered. There were some pretty hefty bonus incentives for supervisors and enumerators to travel well out of their local areas to cover these communities near the end of the survey period. Some were in parts of Pa.; others were in numerous other states. I would have probably taken one of those slots as the bonus pay and the per diem expense pay was really pretty nice. However my untimely heart surgery precluded that.

    To sum up (Free, are you listening); the Census Bureau had to rush, didn't get all the data it needed and fudged the numbers as best they could to get the damn thing done on time. Was anything intentionally fudged to skew the equation the way it was? Not sure. Only time will tell.

    They would probably have had more time had they not sent people out to interview those that had already submitted their forms, the same day they received them.

    As with all the “coincidences”…. When it continually favors one side over the other, there’s ample reason to trust that it’s not a collection of random events

    Agreed. My staff and myself had quite a number of households where we were informed "We already sent ours in." Again, staff shortages causing mix ups. Those of us in the field were getting out of date and incorrect enumeration addresses from the Bureau. It was very frustrating at times. We were running our asses off canvasing homes that didn't need enumerated.

    BTW, even if they hadn't sent us on wild goose chases there still wouldn't have been enough time to complete the 2020 on time. We should have gotten and extension from Congress. I'm not sure if it was asked for or denied, but it should have been granted if asked for.

    I guess if you want to believe that's the reason. I believe that it's because I didn't complete the form, but merely filled in the number of people in the household. Much like I did the previous time and got visited then too. Both times I had people visit my place at least 10 times. They don't like people not answering those intrusive questions.

    Agreed there as well. I'm not going to go full out conspiracy theory on this one but my "Spidey sense" is up.

    This problem can be solved very easily if every newborn and legal immigrant in the US has a chip inserted right behind the ear.
