2018 US Midterm Elections Overview

October 2018

Our best-in-class Public Policy Practice provides exceptional expertise and unparalleled levels of political analysis to make sure you stay informed and are heard at the right time by the right people. In the US and globally, we help clients understand the political environment and key stakeholders in each, and what government policies and regulations may impact their goals and objectives. Our presence in nearly all major world capitals spans six continents.
Since May 2018, our preeminent Public Policy team has carefully tracked and compiled data to display current trajectories for the US midterm elections in November 2018. Our 2018 Midterm Elections Overview highlights competitive Senate and House races which will define the 116th Congress, but does not attempt to predict the outcome.
The Senate overview provides recent polling and political rankings from Real Clear Politics, Cook Political Report and Sabato’s Crystal Ball, while the House overview imparts a general look into more competitive races. Information regarding both chambers is supplemented by previous voter trends in congressional and presidential elections. Our congressional midterm analysis further leverages unique political insight from former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R) and Senator John Breaux (D), co-chairs of our Public Policy Practice.
Additionally, Republicans currently hold a majority in both gubernatorial and attorney general positions throughout the country. We profile several key races for each position and illustrated President Trump’s respective endorsements to target where and if the Republican advantage will remain intact.
This overview will be updated periodically leading up to the November 6 election to provide real-time polling information.
