Wave or Ripple? A Look Ahead at the 2018 Midterms
June 21st | 11:00 A.M. EST
Since World War II, the president’s party has lost House seats in 16 of the 18 midterm elections, at an average of 25 seats lost per election. The losses also tend to be much higher in the midterms of a president’s first term. Currently, Republicans can only lose 22 seats before they forfeit control over the speaker’s gavel. Can they keep it?
In this webinar, we test the waters of the 2018 midterm elections to try and determine if Republicans are facing a wave or a ripple, and answered the following questions:
- Which previous midterms are most similar to 2018, and what can they tell us?
- Where should you look for signs and strength of a wave election?
- What are the Democratic strategies to keep the momentum in their favor?
- How are Republicans countering that momentum?
Join National Journal Presentation Center analysts Daniel Stublen, Taryn MacKinney, and Alistair Taylor for an in-depth look at the facts and figures influencing the 2018 midterm elections.
