Americans continue to push back on the media, political, and judicial corruption of the 2020 Presidential Election. They have showed up to vote in 2021.
In 2021, six states held elections for executive, legislative, or judicial seats, including elections for three of the nation’s 99 state legislative chambers, 15 appellate court seats, and two gubernatorial offices.
The current results of the 2021 elections shows control of at least 13 seats (5.9%) flipped from one political party to another.
Republicans have taken over 12 seats from the Democrats. The Dems took just one seat away from the GOP.
Democrats lost control of the Virginia House of Delegates, while they maintained their majorities in the New Jersey State Senate and General Assembly. Control of seven seats flipped in Virginia, while the control of the other four flipped in New Jersey.
Three state executive offices changed partisan control, with all three switching from Democratic to Republican control, giving Republicans a net gain of three offices.
All three partisan changes took place in Virginia in 2021, with Republicans winning control of the governorship, lieutenant governorship, and office of attorney general.
Following the 2020 Senate elections and the January 2021 runoffs in Georgia, Democrats and Republicans split the chamber 50-50. This gave Vice President Kamala Harris (D) a tie-breaking vote, and Democrats control of the U.S. Senate via a power-sharing agreement.
Elections to the U.S. Senate will be held on November 8, 2022, and 34 of the 100 seats are up for regular election. Those elected to the U.S. Senate in the 34 regular elections in 2022 will begin their six-year terms on January 3, 2023.
Fourteen seats held by Democrats and 20 seats held by Republicans are up for election in 2022. Republicans are defending two Senate seats in states Democrats won in the 2020 presidential election: Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Democrats are not defending any Senate seats in states Donald Trump (R) won in 2020.
A state government trifecta is a term used to describe when a single party controls the governorship and both chambers of a state’s legislature.
As of December 1, 2021, there are 23 Republican trifectas, 15 Democratic trifectas, and 12 divided governments where neither party holds trifecta control. As a result of the 2021 elections, Democrats lost one trifecta. States with divided government—no trifecta for either major party—increased by one. Republicans neither gained or lost trifectas.
A state government triplex is a term used to describe when a state’s governor, attorney general, and secretary of state are all members of the same party.
As of December 1, 2021, there are 20 Republican triplexes, 18 Democratic triplexes, and 12 divided governments where neither party holds triplex control.
