Where political power moved in the 2020 Census

Southern and Western states saw the most growth over the past 10 years according to the US Census Bureau, and they gained congressional seats because of it. In this latest episode of The Point, CNN’s Chris Cillizza explains who gained (and lost) the most from reapportionment, and what this means for political power going forward.
