The overall vote in the 2022 midterms

Here are a couple of stats on the overall vote in last month’s midterm election:

(1) In House races, Republicans got a total of about three million more votes than Democrats: 54.4 million votes versus 51.3 million, respectively.

(2) Nationally, turnout of eligible voters was 46.8%, which was below the 50% turnout in the previous midterms, but much higher than the 36.7% figure from way back in 2014, when lots of the Savvy still had to look up how to spell “fascism.”

The glass half full take here is that these are very good figures, historically speaking, for the party holding the White House in a mid-term election.

The glass half empty perspective is that this suggests strongly that very few Americans, including very few of the people who actually bother to show up to vote for Democratic candidates, consider the Republican party to be an existential threat to liberal democracy.
