More on Amy’s talk:

The Trump Administration will preside over the least accurate Census in decades in which the overcount of the white non-Hispanic population and the undercounts of everyone else will both increase. This will directly affect reapportionment of Representatives to Congress and redistricting within states until at least the 2030 Census. The most likely outcomes will be that the GOP continues to maintain majorities of elected positions at state and national levels despite receiving smaller shares of votes.
