Food for Thought: Initial Congressional District Vote Breakdowns with New Boundaries
April 11, 2011 1 Comment
We ran some quick numbers from the 2010 Congressional candidate election results on the new Congressional District boundaries. We put counties where their majority is which does not give a completely accurate picture of the districts but it does provide estimates.
There are a few key things to note.
For District 1, we included the Michigan City portion of LaPorte County. In District 2, we included all of Kosciusko County. That means District 3 did not get any of it. For District 4, we did not include any the portions it received in Morgan or Howard County. Those would probably offset each other and it is a pretty Republican district regardless.
In District 5, we included all of Howard County and Washington, Lawrence and Pike Townships in Marion which will likely make it a bit more Democrat leaning that it will turn out to be. In District 6, we did not include the portion of Scott County slotted to be there. District 7 does not include the sections we gave to District 5 which will in turn make it seem slightly more competitive than it actually will be.
District 8 did not receive any of Crawford County that it is slotted to receive. Finally, District 9 received all of Scott and Crawford counties when it will receive half of each.
