November likely to lessen GOP's advantage in legislatures
In the battle for control of the 50 state legislatures, the shifting tides in the presidential race don’t appear to be having much of an impact. Instead, structural factors — like the fact that the Democrats control a record low number of legislative chambers and the fact that more Democratic-leaning voters tend to go to the polls in presidential election years — are having a bigger effect. The result, if our analysis is correct, should be a continued — but narrower — lead for Republicans in state legislatures.
