I'd like to find out what happened in 1966.
Looks like the Dems took a big bath in 1966, losing
47 seats in the house and 4 in the senate. Figuring
for population growth, it's probably roughly
equivalent to 1994. Check 1998 out, however.
B. Presidential Party Surge/Midterm Dropoff But,
the more they win in presidential election years, the
more they are likely to lose during the midterm
election. Midterm Fortunes of Presidential Parties,
House and Senate, 1934-1998 Year President Seats
Gained or Lost House Senate 1934 Roosevelt (D) +9 +10
1938 Roosevelt (D) -71 -6 1942 Roosevelt (D) -55 -9
1946 Roosevelt-Truman (D) -45 -12 1950 Truman (D) -29
-6 1954 Eisenhower (R) -18 -1 1958 Eisenhower (R) -48
-13 1962 Kennedy (D) -4 +3 1966 Johnson (D) -47 -4
1970 Nixon (R) -12 +2 1974 Nixon-Ford (R) -48 -5 1978
Carter (D) -15 -3 1982 Reagan (R) -26 +1 1986 Reagan
(R) -5 -8 1990 Bush (R) -8 -1 1994 Clinton (D) -52 -8
1998 Clinton (D) +5 0
I still think there is something to be learned from
the progressive strides of the early 20 century. What
caused suffrage, child labor legislation, 40 hr work
weeks, etc. to come about in a relatively short
period of time? Maybe the Bolshevik revolution shook
up the big money interests. Maybe it became obvious
that it was smart politics.
I don't think anybody ever accused Warren Harding of
being a particularly enlightened thinker but he was
the first president that women were allowed to vote
for and he supported suffrage and won big.
I also heard that Bush asked Catherine Harris not to
run. She gave him what he wanted and he dumped her..
could that be the neo-cons version of slam,bam,thank

As we all know, Catherine Harris is running for Senate
as well. Maybe
the climax top for the neo-CONs? If 1964 for the
conservatives was the
2004 for the liberals, I'd like to find out what
happened in 1966.
