FOX News reported:

Republican-leaning states all across the South and West will gain congressional seats based on the results of the 2010 Census, according to population counts released Tuesday.

The Census Bureau announced that eight states will gain a total of 12 seats, while 10 states — mostly in the Northeast and Midwest — will lose seats.

Revealing initial results from the Census, Director Robert Groves also announced that the official U.S. population as of April 2010 is 308,745,538. The number represents a 9.7 percent increase from a decade earlier.

Michigan was the only state to see a decrease in population.
