While midterm elections usually attract much less attention than presidential elections in the U.S., the current state of domestic and world affairs have made the stakes on November 8 as high as ever. This fall, a third of the seats in the Senate and all seats in the House of Representatives are up for reelection. Thirty-six states will hold gubernatorial elections and forty-six will hold legislative elections that could have significant consequences well beyond the 2022 midterms. Intensified scrutiny of campaign funding and spending, political polling, and election forecasts have created an even greater demand for more sophisticated and precise data modeling. Join a discussion on the unique challenges analysts and strategists have faced this election cycle, and what we can learn from the torrent of data surrounding the midterms.
