"state population estimates" link is defective.

The link has been fixed. Thanks for the heads-up.

All that assumes that Congress keeps the size of the US House as it is, basicly unchanged since 1911. Given the growing evidence that census data is less than perfect, we may see a push to increase the size of the House by perhaps some 30 members to go into effect for the 2012 elections.

To some, a 30-member increase would seem like a lot. But that would only be a 7% increase in the size of the House compared to the 200+% increase in America's population since 1911. The added seats would also avoid a lot of expected (and costly) litigation over lost House seats.
