New York and New Jersey lost Congressional seats again, based on the 2020 Census. California lost a seat for the first time in its history. Florida added one seat, and Texas added two.
The trend of population shifts from Democratically dominated “blue” states to Republican-controlled “red” states only accelerated in the COVID-era of the past 2½ years, according to census data and other information from companies like U-Haul.
It’s a phenomenon examined in stunning detail in the documentary “Blue to Red: The Shifting of America” airing Sunday, July 31, at 9 p.m. Eastern on Newsmax.
With insights from Newsmax’s own Eric Bolling, Dave Rubin from the eponymous podcast “The Rubin Report,” the Newsmax original production by Full Story Films and Executive Producer Joe Weasel delves into to the reasons why millions of Americans have migrated — and continue to migrate — to conservative areas of the country.
“The country is bifurcating,” Bolling says in the film. “We're splitting into a red and blue country. Period.”
Forbes magazine says the shift in population has been as much political as it has been economic.
The special examines how COVID-19 and the Draconian policies imposed by Democratic governors resulted in lawlessness, failed education, and botched public health policies.
In addition to the battle over keeping schools open and the wearing of masks, “Blue to Red” takes a look at the economic policies that forced millions of people and businesses to move to states with less regulation and more freedom.
