    Why the Midterm Results Should Concern You Regardless of Which Party You Support


    ...As the partisans clear through the rubble, the results of the 2018 midterm elections should deeply disturb all Americans who care about representative democracy no matter their politics.

    That’s because despite the Democrats’ approximately seven-point win of the percentage of votes cast, Democrats look likely to win only 37 seats; this is a mockery of the notion held by John Adams and the founding fathers that Congress should be an “exact portrait, a miniature” of the people as a whole.

    For Democrats looking to future, 2020 looms large

    “People are looking too much at what got flipped and not at long-term directional trends,” said Jessica Alter of Tech for Campaigns, which connects tech and campaign experts with candidates.

    For Democrats looking to future, 2020 looms large

    ...In terms of reducing the GOP advantage in states where Republicans have what is commonly known as “trifectas” — control of the governorship and both chambers of the state legislature — Democrats had some success, but not as much as they might have liked.

    After the Midterms, One Party Controls All the Wealthiest Congressional Districts

    ...Money and politics have become inseparable in America, with elections and campaigns more expensive than ever, especially in light of the 2018 midterm elections. Super PACs, although barred from coordinating with politicians directly, can help raise millions of dollars for a campaign and singlehandedly sway the outcome of an election.
