The data from the 2010 Census was released today, and as expected, the GOP stands to make big gains.

Some details from Business Insider:

First of all, there was a big shift in Congressional states from “blue” to “red” states. Texas is the huge winner, picking up 4 seats. NY and Pennsylvania both lost seats. California failed to gain any seats for the first time.

Other red states picking up seats, according to Washington Post’s Aaron Blake: FL +2, AZ, GA, SC, UT, WA, NV +1.

Other losers included Ohio and Missouri.

What’s also key is that the GOP had a monster 2010 election in state legislatures, where the actual of redrawing of districts will occur. So put it together, and you’re talking about gains that will last at least a decade felt across all levels of politics.

The only state to lose population overall was Michigan (I thought it felt less crowded in here). In 2006, Governor Granholm told us we’d be “blown away” within five years, and darnit if she didn’t deliver a year ahead of schedule!

The entire report is posted here.

“Baghdad Bob” Gibbs is downplaying it so far:

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama’s spokesman says he doesn’t expect the results of the new census to have a “huge practical impact” on national politics.

Is that the same Gibbs who predicted the Democrats would retain the House? Just asking.

Update: Michael Barone breaks down the numbers a little more: Fast growth in states with no income tax
