Reapportionment puts Democrats on top for '84

Long before Election Day, Democrats have won significant victories in the House of Representatives and could gain a half dozen seats around the nation through reapportionment, a UPI survey shows.

State legislatures have almost completed the task of redesignating the 435 House districts and the message is simple - the Republicans had the money and the computers, but the Democrats had the votes in the state legislatures. It was thought the Democrats would lose big, since the major population shift in the past decade has been out of the Democratic Northern and Midwestern cities and into the Republican Sunbelt. But of the 17 seats lost in the Northeast and Midwest, 10 are Republican and only seven Democratic.
