The fix is in again!Despite admitting the numbers are skewed, the mistake will be fixed

A study released by the US Census Bureau itself admits several states were undercounted and overcounted during the 2020 Census.
On May 19, the bureau published its findings following a study meant to examine the accuracy of the original counts.

The results showed Republican-leaning states were undercounted by a significant amount while Democrat states were overcounted by statistically significant margins.
As usual, the government is blaming the Covid-19 pandemic for its failures with Census Bureau Director Robert L. Santos stating, “Achieving an accurate count for all 50 states and DC is always a difficult endeavor, and these results suggest it was difficult again in 2020, particularly given the unprecedented challenges we faced.”
A glimpse at the 14 states where the population was counted incorrectly reveals an interesting theme that could have an impact on the upcoming 2022 midterms as well as the 2024 presidential election.
- Undercount: Arkansas (-5.04%), Florida (-3.48%), Illinois (-1.97%), Mississippi (-4.11%), Tennessee (-4.78%) and Texas (-1.92%).
- Overcount: 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%).
These mistakes have a real-life impact, such as the states of Florida and Texas missing out on an additional congressional seat.
Even the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board published an opinion article asking, “Who Rigged the Census?” and revealing, “Under-counts may have cost Florida and Texas another House seat.”
The WSJ Board admitted, “the inaccuracies may have cost Florida and Texas an additional House seat and given Rhode Island and Minnesota one they shouldn’t have received.”
In an article by The Hill, journalist Kristin Tate explains, “it is difficult to understand how the Census Bureau missed more than 5 percent of the populations of Arkansas, Delaware and Hawaii.”
“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,” Tate writes. “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.”
Would anyone put it past the political establishment, especially the Democratic Party, to purposely rig the counting of the states to strive for less representation for Republicans in Congress and to boost the number of Democrats?
The worst part of the situation is that despite the Census Bureau admitting its errors, the Supreme Court has previously ruled that revised and more accurate numbers could not be used to redistribute congressional seat counts.
Unless the Supreme Court were to rule on a challenge to change the seat counts based on the accurate data, American elections will be openly rigged in favor of the Democrat party from now on.
