GOP On Track For One Of The Smallest House Swings In 40 Years

US

The GOP has officially won the House of Representatives and the number of GOP seats is likely to rise slightly as the results of the six remaining uncalled races trickle in.

  • When the dust finally settles, the GOP is likely to hold around a three-seat majority – a majority that represents one of the smallest swings in recent history.
  • The Washington Post has provided a useful chart putting into context the poor Republican performance in the House of Representatives.
  • The GOP majority may grow as the final races are called but this midterm election represents a significant underperformance for Republicans amid a highly favourable political tailwind.
