Small States Gaining Large Advantage in Senate, Electoral College

City Limits: “By 2040, 70 percent of Americans are expected to live in the 15 largest states, which are also home to the overwhelming majority of the 30 largest cities in the country. By extension, 30 percent of Americans will live in the other 35 states. That means that the 70 percent of Americans get all of 30 Senators and 30 percent of Americans get 70 Senators,” said David Birdsell, a political science professor and dean at Baruch College.
