Midterm Turnout



The idea that Democrats are bad at midterm turnout doesn’t really hold water. What holds water is that the party in power is bad at midterm turnout. There is some effect of Democrats having slightly lower voting generally because of who Democrats are, but it’s overstated. Unfortunately, our short memories on political history vastly overstate recent elections, time and time again. So it’s not surprising that early special elections at the state level are showing vast increases in Democratic percentage of the vote, but it is encouraging nonetheless.
