More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

        Louisiana certifies fast, but I don't recall the results on their webpage ever changing. I think they pretty much get all of the absentees in fast, and most of the state is electronic anyways. So their vote totals on election night are still the vote totals displayed afterwards. Not sure if they ever adjust vote totals.

        But Louisiana has ultra-detailed results, so splitting up their crazy gerrymandered districts shouldn't be too hard. And yes, I consider the New Orleans to Baton Rouge district to be a pure gerrymander intended more to keep Democrats out of other districts than to fulfill VRA obligations (they could meet the VRA without having a majority-AA district in New Orleans without creating a Republican district in New Orleans)

    Looking at the sates so far, it appears that the biggest shifts in PVI (measured by looking at 2008 versus 2012 in isolation) shows some interesting patterns.

    Georgia:

    1.  All seats besides GA-06, GA-09, GA-10, GA-11, and GA-14 improved from 2008 to 2010.
    2.  Sanford Bishop's seat (GA-02) went from D+4 to D+7, meaning even in a 2010-style wipeout he shouldn't have a close call anymore.  
    3.  GA-12 improved a bit too - it's down to R+8 (was R+10), which could matter in terms of Barrow's continued survival.  
    4.  GA-01 also improved to R+8.  While this isn't good enough to compete now, by the end of the decade it may well be a seat we have a shot in again.  

    Minnesota:

    1.  Both Walz (MN-01) and Nolan (MN-08) saw positive PVI shifts in 2012 (about 0.5% and 0,8%), which augers well for Democrats keeping these seats.
    2.  Both MN-02 and MN-03 both shifted a tad to the left, but MN-02 did so far more rapidly, so that it's now slightly more left-leaning than the other district.
    3.  In contrast, Peterson's district (MN-07) continued to drift away from us, swinging to the right by about 1.3% compared to the national swing.  This is apparently the only Minnesota district moving to the right, and will be hard to keep once he retires.  

    Oklahoma:

    It will be decades until OK shifts enough to be competitive, but it's good to see we seem to have just about hit bottom there.  Hell, Obama may have done better in OK-05 this year in terms of raw numbers.  

    Virginia:

    I've already discussed this map.  Presuming the trends which stated with Obama continue, this will be considered a dummymander by 2020, as VA-02 and VA-04 will be Lean D seats, and VA-01, VA-05, and VA-10 only barely Republican-leaning.

      That VA already looks like PA: The Next Generation, especially if there's a wave or quasi-wave.

      As for Minnesota, I think Peterson's seat will be an almost impossible hold when he goes. But I think MN-02 will be a very good opportunity for us when Kline retires, and even MN-03 might be doable if Paulsen runs for higher office. Put another way, I'd gladly trade the 7th for the 2nd, especially if it comes with a legit shot at the 3rd someday, too.

        In 2022, losing MN-07 isn't the end of the world, provided the Republican incumbent has less seniority than all Democratic incumbents.  

        Of course, a neutral map which killed MN-07 would probably result in either MN-01 and MN-08 shifting pretty far to the right (or both for that matter), but there are a ton of different configurations which are possible.   Hopefully we'll have the trifecta then and not a court-drawn map.

            Since they were "on the bubble" this year, they'd be almost certain to lose a seat following the 2020 census, presuming that the growth rate in the state doesn't jump unexpectedly this decade.

            Put it this way, have you ever heard of, in recent history, an "on the bubble" state which lost a district one decade, then gained it back a decade later?

                  I wrote Making Census sense on my own blog at the end of 2010. It uses a table created by the Census, showing CDs by state for every decade since 1910. Among the items I mentioned in that post:

                  • 17 states have never lost a CD in that century. Of those, five (AK, DE, and WY with 1; ID and NH with 2) have had the same number of CDs throughout the whole timeframe.
                  • HI deserves an asterisk. Immediately upon statehood it was arbitrarily given 1 CD, but it's had 2 ever since its first participation in apportionment.
                  • Conversely, 22 states have lost seats without ever gaining one in that century. On an absolute scale, the biggest loser is PA at -18 (36 to 18), whereas IA (11 to 4) has had the worst percentage decrease.
                  • Speaking of PA, it's completely switched with TX (18 to 36) in the century since 1910.
                  • Since peaking at 45 seats in the 1930 and 1940 Censuses, NY has lost at least two seats every decade (seven times in a row). In the 1982 election, it had to squeeze 39 Congressmen into just 34 new seats.

                  I have plenty more.

                    (Looking at your original post) is that rural lawmakers were terrified of the growth of urban areas and simply refused to reapportion. And indeed, in many places, refused to redistrict, either. This was decades before the Supreme Court enshrined "one person, one vote" into law, and as far as I know, no one tried to sue over this failure.

                      Amazing that such shenanigans were accepted back then.

                      Since the original post, I did carry out a 1920 reapportionment, using the method that is now in place. Turns out that the changes weren't nearly as "bad" as was feared (IMHO). As you'd expect, CA (+3) was the biggest winner, with MI and OH at +2. The only state to lose as many as 2 seats was MO. But a host of mid-continent and Southern states each lost one seat -- IN, IA, KS, KY, LA, MS, NE, VA (ME and NY too).

                      Still, if rural lawmakers controlled state governments, they could have created new maps that didn't reflect the increasing urbanism. As you say, it's long before Baker v. Carr.

                      By not reapportioning, they merely delayed the shock that occurred in 1930. Instead of going 11-->14-->20, CA went straight from 11 to 20. Similar effects in MI (13-->15-->17) and TX (18-->19-->21), and on the negative side MO (16-->14-->13).

            Recommended by:

            So a lot of people expect MN to lose it next time.  However, Minnesota's growth hasn't trailed that of the country by that much.  From 2000 to 2010, MN grew by 7.8%, while the USA grew by 9.7%.  If that keeps up, then MN will indeed lose a seat, but it's not such a dramatic disparity as states like WV (which grew only 2.5%) and RI (which only grew 0.4%) which may be more likely candidates to lose a seat.  They could all end up losing a seat, but if America's growth slows down just a bit this decade but Minnesota's stays where it is, Minnesota might escape again with its 8th seat.

            However, if Texas and Florida are adding multiple seats again, that will have to come from somewhere, and Minnesota seems a likely victim (along with New York, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, etc.)

            Basically, if the trends of the past decades continue, with strong differences in the growth rates between states, then Minnesota is out of luck.

          Interestingly, the more moderate to Democratic areas of the 7th are the extreme North and southern Minnesota River Valley counties. That means it is very easy to draw both Walz and Nolan (more likely his successor) districts close to the same DPI they are now. It's the central part of CD7 that is absolutely killer.

            There are moderate D counties in the far north (Clay, Kitson, etc), and ones in the upper reaches of the Minnesota River (Traverse, Swift), but it seems like both the north central and the southern portions of the district are pretty conservative.  Which means you'd need a gerrymander to some degree in order to avoid reducing the D margin much in either of the other rural districts.

              it's pretty easy to keep the rest of the state about where it is, with competitive but Dem leaning districts in the extreme north and south, a deep dark red Bachmann-land district in the center, a Republican leaning suburban district, two Democratic urban districts, and a swingy suburban district.

              a gerrymander but kept counties almost all whole when possible.

              MN-1 keeps Blue Earth, Nicollet, and everything West, then adds Watonwan, Renville, the town of New Ulm in Brown, Chippewa, Swift, most of Kandiyohi, Grant, Stevens, and Pope.

              The new MN-7 takes in SW Minnesota and reaches as far North as Becker and Hubbard, then loops back South all the way into the outer suburbs of Minneapolis/St Paul.

      if Kingston were to retire or leave office, i'd imagine there'd be a bit of a fight if a Savannah-based Barrow type was running for the Dems. But Chatham was +12 Obama and +5 Jack Kingston in the same election.

      And the Rs strengthened Barrow's position slightly by moving a part of Effingham that went heavily for Kingston (81/19, 12K votes cast) on Nov6 from GA12 to GA1. Barrow lost Effingham by 17% in 2008 when Barrow was winning the district by 32%. So the Republican rural areas couldn't match what Effingham would have given Lee Anderson if it wasn't split.

      But then again, we may find that Effingham could save the Rs in an open seat election in GA1.

  •  Looking at Oregon (0+ / 0-)

    OR-01 is at 57.33% Obama without the Multnomah County portion considered, since it's the only divided county (and precinct results won't be available for a bit).  It should be at about D+6 now.

    OR-04 is at about 52.22% Obama without its divided counties.  Given that he has nearly all of Benton County which went strongly for Obama, probably more D+ this year than in 2008, and the remainder is more conservative than his share, and he has rural Josephine County but not the über-red Grants Pass, that'll probaby kick it up to a more respectable Obama percentage more in line with its PVI.

    OR-05 is at 49.87% Obama without its divided counties.  The share of Multnomah is smaller than before, the share of Clackamas is more Democratic, thanks to Milwaukie, and that's the bulk of the outstanding votes I'm not counting, but the share of Benton is more conservative, the only whole or part county of the district Schrader lost.  It will be close.

    OR-03 is probably shifting to a more Dem PVI because of Multnomah County shifting more Dem.  OR-02 is 41.6% Obama without the portion of Josephine County, which should be dark red, but maybe not enough to shift it from being about R+10.

    ...as soon as the counties start publishing their certified totals.

    King County says its precinct file will be available on Dec 4, but I haven't checked most of the other counties. Most are wholly within a single CD, which simplifies things.

    CT-05 is truly the most R district in CT. It's Chris Murphy's home base, but never easy.

    When I talked with David earlier about this, he said that you guys are planning to use the Boston Globe results for Massachusetts, therefore I wanted to point out that they have the wrong result for Halifax, Mass.  It stuck out has being weirdly strongly Romney, which more so than anywhere else in the state or any adjacent town.  That's because the Globe's reporter is missing a digit from Obama's total.  It should be 2065-1930 Romney, not 2065-997:

    Can you post in the Live Digest thread (or have David Nir make an actual post in the Live Digest itself) when you finish a new state's final numbers?

  •  CA (0+ / 0-)

    I have done the preliminary work for CA05 and CA03, once the county results are done.  In some counties I have identified the partial results.  Some of the counties have a history of posting precinct results in the past.  Some of those have posted precinct results of the partial count.

    CA 07 and CA 06 should be relatively easy to do from information on their website, I might do the preliminary for those tomorrow.

    CA09: I have idd all 3 counties as posting final vote on the internet in the past.

    CA02 should be a matter of collating the county wide vote, along with the two partial counties that I am already dealing with.

    CA01 has two split counties, one of which I have idd a source for precinct data.  I dont know about Placer County, the other split county.

    CA11, CA13, and CA15: the county has posted final results in the past.  It would be a matter of some further work IDing from the primary to be ready for those.

    •  CA06 and CA07 (0+ / 0-)

      These seem to be the only districts of the above for which preliminary information is sufficient to post a preliminary count to your chart. All the others have counties which make a practice of posting detailed information in the past, but have not done so yet.

      I think Ill do that tomorrow.

    Can you include congessional numbers in the spreadsheet? It would help for number- crunching gerrymandering effects. For instance, many states don't count unopposed races, so to use pres numbers as a proxy we should have these numbers together.

    Senate rules which prevent any reform of the filibuster are unconstitutional. Therefore, we can rein in the filibuster tomorrow with 51 votes.

      which was just won by Democrat Joe Garcia. I presume that's what you mean by the "quite gay" parts. It's also a heavily Cuban district.

        I was trying to track down exactly where that district is, as I would like to do a project on the Vote in that district, considering the upsurge in the Cuban vote for Obama (which, if that trend continues, could put Florida somewhat out of reach for Republicans)
