Election results: Nov. 8, 2022

Full results trickling in until Nov. 12 at the earliest!

    Update Nov. 24: Alaska finaly reported their Instant Runoff results, and there are a only a few House races left to decide, plus the Georgia runoff on Dec. 6, but here's the "final" big picture, including how OnTheIssues predictions held up....
  • House: The Republicans will take a slim majority. OnTheIssues predicted a thin GOP House majority of 10-20 seats but the actual result will be much thinner than our prediction, well under a 10-seat majority.
  • Governors: The Republicans will lose a few seats. OnTheIssues predicted Democratic gubernatorial gains of 2 seats and that was right on (we predicted one race wrong in each party, for a total of 2 wrong predictions out of 36).
  • Senate: The Democrats will maintain a slim majority. OnTheIssues predicted a thin Democratic Senate majority of 2 seats but the actual result will be either a one-seat Democratic majority, or a 50-50 tie with the Democratic Vice President as the tiebreaker. The Senate is 50R-to-50D with only the Georgia runoff still undecided.
  • Election Deniers: OnTheIssues predicted no 2020 election deniers would win office, and this prediction held true, with zero wins based on an anti-democracy message in any Senate or Gubernatorial races (and in only a few statewide races like Secretary of State).

House Election prediction: Oct. 27, 2022

Republicans gain 10 to 20 seats and gain House majority

The 117th Congress (the U.S. House of Representatives from January 2021 until January 2023) had 15 special House elections. Following are the old and new members of Congress, with party affiliation marked. We list these as indicative of the electoral chances for the two parties in the November 8th election.

Unlike Senators and Governors, every member of the House is up for re-election on November 8th. Currently the House partisan balance stands at 220 Democrats to 212 Republicans, with 3 vacancies to be filled on Nov. 8. Traditionally, the party in power loses House seats in the midterm election, and this year looks no different.

OnTheIssues predicts a net gain of 10 to 20 seats for Republicans, resulting in a House partisan balance of about 227 Republicans to 208 Democrats. That means the Republicans would have a House majority, and hence would appoint Chairs of all House committees, and decide which bills come up for votes, and which pass the House.

We predict the Senate will remain a Democratic majority -- hence the two chambers will be "split", creating a challenge for passing any legislation. The traditional method to deal with a split Congress is to pass "bipartisan legislation" which both parties agree to -- that means the 118th Congress will be more moderate than the 117th Congress.

Governor Election prediction: Oct. 20, 2022

Democrats win 18; Republican win 18; all election deniers lose

OnTheIssues predicts 36 Gubernatoral races split 18 Democrat and 18 Republican victories (Democratic net gain of 2 seats)
The yellow-highlighted states are where we predict the Governor seat switches party. But there's no "party balance" among the nation's 50 governors, like there is among the 100 Senators, since governors are all independent of each other.

What DOES matter is the implications for future elections, if an "election denier" is elected governor. A governor who disbelieves in electoral democracy means a chaotic and potentially violent 2024 election. We predict that zero election deniers will be elected governor, because their denial turns off so many voters from voting, including their supporters who share their election denial beliefs. In other words, election deniers hurt their own electoral chances, by claiming falsely that votes don't count.

The pundits perform their polls, and in some cases predict a party turnover where we don't (highlighted in pink). The election deniers for governor include Kari Lake (AZ), Derek Schmidt (KS), Tudor Dixon (MI), Doug Mastriano (PA), and Tim Michels (WI) -- all of whom the pundits say have a chance to win -- but we don't believe those polls! Ron DeSantis (FL) has flirted with election denial, but has not crossed the line -- so we believe the polls that he will win. Many of those pundits predict victories for election deniers -- but we think their polls are wrong, because the election denial candidates "shoot themselves in the foot".

Senate Election prediction: Oct. 8, 2022

Democrats increase majority to 52-48

With exactly one month to go before the election, OnTheIssues predicts a Senate split 52D-48R (Democratic net gain of 2 seats)
The yellow-highlighted states are where we predict the Senate seat switches party. (Pink highlights are "possible upsets according to pundits"). Since the Republicans started with more seats up for re-election this year, we're predicting that the Democrats will gain seats in the Senate, by taking over some seats currently held by Republicans. Party take-overs are notoriously difficult to predict, and we predict 6 takeovers -- 2 to the Republicans and 4 to the Democrats. It's likely that we'll only predict correctly half of those with yellow highlights -- but even in that case, the Dems will still control the Senate 51-49 or 50-50 (with Kamala Harris as the tiebreaker like she is now). Six months ago, all the pundits predicted a Republican takeover of the Senate (a net loss of at least 1 Democratic seat). The pundits are currently in a dither because they see that their early prognositication is clearly incorrect -- we don't see any net loss for the Democrats as even a remote possibility. We'll predict the House next week, where we'll predict a Republican takeover for sure....
