Midterms: Blue or Red or Neither

Here is the breakdown of the two major party lines in the United States based on Gallup Daily Tracking for 2017. The midterm elections are coming up this November as most of us know who live in the United States. For those who can vote and even for those that can’t or don’t want to vote for some odd reason, here is how the blue (Democrat) and red (Republican) stack up. There are other parties besides the primary two, the Libertarian and Green come to mind, but not included in this tracking poll. There were 20 solid and lean Democratic states in 2017 compared to 14 in 2015. There were 16 solid and lean Republican states in 2017 compared to 21 in 2015. There were 15 competitive states in 2017 compared to 16 in 2015. As the presidential election was mind-blowing in 2016, this should be interesting, as well, in 2018.
