How is it that Michigan was the only State to lose population in the country, but it only lost one seat in reapportionment while Ohio lost two?!?

    It’s called an apportionment paradox.

    Well, the first step to anything is naming it. Still, it’s odd that we’re gaining population and we’re losing more members than the only State LOSING population.

    Michigan has less total representation than Ohio. New York also lost 2 reps.
