Reprojecting to Web Mercator

I have the Census TIGER/Line state boundaries, which I am trying to reproject to resemble more commonly held perceptions of state boundaries (i.e. Google maps).  The TIGER/Line data is currently projected in:

 

Projected Coordinate System: Hawaii_Albers_Equal_Area_Conic
Projection: Albers

 

I am trying to reproject to WGS 1984 Web Mercator (auxiliary sphere), which from my research I understand to be the projection used by Google.

 

The reprojection tool runs successfully; however, the output looks the same as the input (stretched boundaries as compared to Google maps).  I've spent an hour or two researching the best way to accomplish this particular task, but I'm not coming up with answers that have worked.

 

Advice is much appreciated!
