Robert Novak: "AMERICA GETS REDDER
A projection by Polidata, a Republican-oriented political mapping and redistricting firm, shows population trends will make Republican-dominated 'Red' states more influential in winning presidential elections and determining control of Congress after the 2010 census.
The new study forecasts that 'Red' states will pick up a net six electoral votes, with Florida and Texas gaining three each. The 'Blue' states carried by John Kerry, according to Polidata, will lose a net six electoral votes, led by New York's loss of two. Under this distribution of electoral votes, George W. Bush could have been elected last November without carrying Ohio.
This projection points to probable Republican control of the White House and the House of Representatives far into the future. "
