Democrats Break 50 Year Record To Tie GOP

This election season is expected to be a tight race, with many speculating that for the first time in 55 years, the two parties might win an equal number of state governments. This comes during a time when abortion rights have become a concern that has driven many away from far-right nominees. This has helped the Democrats increase their odds. Many believe that they might achieve a 25-to-25-state tie. The last time an even split occurred was in 1967.

This would lead to an interesting situation as states are often used as experimental grounds for different governing ideas to be implemented. Republican Governors Greg Abbott of Texas and Ron DeSantis of Florida, both have called for strict restrictions on both abortion access and immigration. However, if the Democrats managed to tie the GOP and take away the lead that they have had for more than a decade, they might be able to promote their agenda more effectively.

This could also provide more safeguards against key rights such as abortion being taken away by governors in states.

For the Democrats to achieve an even score, they have to flip three seats. Many consider this to be increasingly possible in key states like Maryland and Massachusetts. Democrats are also hoping that they have a chance of flipping Arizona, a state that in 2018 had two Democratic senators elected.

Outside of flipping seats, all incumbent governors would need to be re-elected and maintain their seats. Since 2011, only one Democratic incumbent has lost their seat, which leads to more hope in the democratic camp.
