AEI Political Report, November 2010

Washington has moved on to questions about the 112th Congress. Who will head what committees? How will the leadership contests in the House shape up? But there are still many stories to be told from the Election 2010. In this issue of AEI's Political Report, we compare the results of the 2010 House, Senate, gubernatorial, and state legislative contests to outcomes over the past century. We have also unearthed many unreported nuggets from the exit polls. What did Iowa voters who will cast votes in that state's caucus in early 2012 say about Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney? How popular were favorite sons Joe Biden, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and President Obama in their home states? What did Arizonans have to say about their state's immigration bill? How popular was NAFTA in Ohio? How do the votes of key subgroups compare to their votes in past elections? In this issue, we provide the answers.

*How do the 2010 results stack up historically
*Reading tea leaves: Exit poll nuggets from A to Z
*State-by-state out takes on key questions including what Congress should do about health care and what the priorities should be for the new Congress
