The number of electoral votes a state gets is determined by the census. The census counts illegals as well as citizens. So states with a lot of illegals may get a disproportionate number of electoral college votes.

Yup, and it confuses the party trying to gerrymander the congressional districts.

The question that comes up next is, which party benefits from this the most? Since illegals can't vote, they don't provide a voting benefit to e.g. liberals.

Border states with major illegal immigration issues: Tex-àss, Arizona...but then, California.

But one would expect those whose business it is to either crunch census numbers or apportion HoR numbers and electoral college votes would bring it up.

doc, drew, if california wasn't at the end of the list for primary season i'd feel a little more sympathy for your cause. clearly iowa is incompetent to host the daytona 500 of election season. california is a mini usa. we have most everything.

but the voting is skewed to the left wing in ca. it doesn't represent America accurately enough.

Based on estimated number of illegals, and the state census, I guess someone would be able to estimate what electoral college votes might be without counting illegals.

Those states have to feed, house, school and pay for the health care of the illegals, and then fight the federal justice department to get them to enforce the border and our laws. They deserve a couple extra votes.
