So, first of all, I was screwed up on my math for Doubling the House. In my last diary, I did a theoretical diary with New Mexico's delegation under Doubling, with 5 districts. But my math was wrong, I only had 5, it should have 6. So I'll get that out of the way and then get to the new states, Delaware and Vermont.
New Mexico redux
New Mexico gets 6 districts.
VAP: 49.4 White, 40.3 Hispanic
61.8 Obama, 56.3 Average Dem
Inner Albuquerque. Good district for Eric Griego. Safe D
VAP: 44.3 W, 46.4 H
56.8 O, 50.2 Dem
Parts of Rio Rancho and outer Albuquerque. Good district for Marty Chavez given his conservaDem tendencies. Tossup/Tilt D
VAP: 37.4 W, 23.4 H, 36.4 Native
61.4 O, 58.2 Dem
Native opportunity district. Farmington, Santa Fe and all the Native areas in the northwest. Current Rep. Ben R. Luján (D) (probably) lives in this district, but I think he'd rather run in the 4th. Safe D
VAP: 45.8 W, 47.9 H
63.3 O, 59.1 Dem
Plurality Hispanic (Majority by total population). Northeastern and parts of Rio Rancho. Like I said above, Luján may run here, or Hector Balderas, whose home turf is here, may want to run if his Senate ambitions are cut short. Safe D
VAP: 54.9 W, 39.3 H
37.9 O, 37.3 Dem
Hobbs, Roswell and Almogordo. Steve Pearce (R) lives here, and he'd like this district. Safe R
VAP: 39.6 W, 56.1 H
56.2 O, 53.4 Dem
Las Cruces into suburban Albuquerque.Safe D
I think this creates a pretty stable or 4-1-1.
Delaware gets 3 districts
62.3 W, 24.5 Black, 8.3 H
Wilmington. Rep. John Carney lives here. Safe D
72.5 W, 16.3 B, 5.5 H
Newark all the way down to Seaford. Safe D
72.1 W, 17.7 B, 6.2 H
Dover and Milford. Lean or Likely D
Pretty stable 3-0
Vermont gets two districts. Both districts are 90+% white VAP.
Burlington and Montpelier. A decent Progressive candidate might even have a chance here. Safe D or equivalent
Rutland, Bennington, Battleboro, etc. Rep. Peter Welch (D) lives here. Safe D
So so far in my series, we have a House delegation of 9-5-1. Next I'll throw up a bevy of small states probably.
