Yesterday, the U.S. Census Bureau unveiled its state population counts. In gaining a little north of 200,000 residents since 2010, Wisconsin managed to preserve its eight seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.
In addition to the state’s two U.S. Senate seats, that means Wisconsin will keep its ten electoral college votes in future presidential elections.
To unpack those numbers further, our producer Jonah Chester spoke with Barry Burden, a professor of political science and director of the Elections Research Center at UW-Madison.
