2018 Election Analysis
CAWG's Federal lobbyist, Cornerstone Government Affairs has put together a 2018 election analysis. Contained herein is a breakdown of federal and state election results from around the country along with analysis and implications across a wide range of policy areas.
Voters delivered a split verdict in a highly contested and contentious election. This was the first midterm election since 1982 in which the President’s party gained seats in one body of Congress while losing seats in the other. While we continue to digest exit polling data, it seems that the political polarization of America continues. Are today’s candidates pushing the electorate further to the political edge, or are they simply reflecting that very electorate? Whatever your view, it seems likely that this polarization will make the collaboration and compromise required to solve our nation’s challenges even more difficult to achieve in the 116th Congress.
