_2014 placement and 2020 count are used. Totals are calculated from nearest general election.
Protodemocrats are counted as Democrats. Protorepubulicans are not counted as Republicans. Adding others may make more accurate counts. Please double check. Remember also that only nine states were needed to ratify the Constitution (1788); four states waited for the bill of rights (1791).
Fourteen years of population data were used while waiting for the next census report. This will be adjusted as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience.
