Elections Analyst Sean Trende joins Federalist Radio to discuss the upcoming 2018 midterms and to debunk some of the biggest myths in political punditry.
Our republic is democratic in that it is controlled by public opinion, but our Constitution requires patience and persistence for the people to express that opinion through elections.
Amy Walter joins the Federalist Radio Hour to discuss the potential impact of both Trump and voter demographics on the 2018 midterm elections.
A string of recent GOP defeats suggest a ‘blue wave’ in next year’s midterms. It’s a nice theory, but Democrats simply aren’t up to the task.
With high turnout and 80 percent in favor of a candidate in a group that is a large population share, Roy Moore still substantially underperformed among white evangelicals.
The obvious lesson of Roy Moore’s election loss is that angry populism fueled by resentment of ‘elites’ is not the basis for a political movement.
Perhaps Thomas Brunell is unfit to run the U.S. Census Bureau. But his thesis on competitive elections is perfectly reasonable.
Donald Trump might obliterate the GOP’s future prospects. Despite wishful thinking, Republican losses in Virginia yesterday do not prove that contention.
The amount of effort that went into this is huge. Everything went Democrats’ way in the 2017 election in Virginia.
Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Arizona) won’t seek re-election when his term comes to an end in January 2019.
Hillary Clinton still wants to abolish the Electoral College as ‘an anachronism that was designed for another time that no longer works.’
Rev. Jesse Jackson has made headlines saying that as we get rid of Confederate statues we should also get rid of the Electoral College.
It seems reasonable to expect that at some point soon a real vacuum will emerge at the center of American politics where there wasn’t one before.
Jon Ossoff’s loss in Georgia’s sixth district is what happens when Democrats believe their own hype about the power of money in politics.
We don’t need another radio show or beautiful think tank with marble bathrooms. We need to start winning. The reason we’re not is the game is rigged against us.
If you think Americans had a rough election year, take a look at what’s been going on in France, which holds the first round of its presidential election next month.
Bernie Sanders and his followers spent most of 2016 complaining about the way big money controls elections. Then Trump happened.
Most everything in the Constitution has stood the test of time, but the method for electing the president was the Founders’ biggest error.
By destroying the Electoral College, we move one step closer to a purely national government, voted on by average voters who have no education about the issues.
