Abstract

Last night saw the Republican Party retake the Senate, and win their largest majority in the House for more than 60 years. Michele Swers reflects on the results, writing that despite concentrating on state-level issues, many Democrats were dragged down by President Obama’s unpopularity and the national climate. She writes that while the Republican Party may be celebrating their victory today, they have kicked out many of the Democrats that would have been their allies on key issues such as trade and tax reform, meaning that legislative compromises are now even less likely.
