What Happened in the 2010 Election

If you thought the election of 2010 was a fluke, you might be right. Voters in 2010 were older and whiter than voters in 2008, as is usually the case in Congressional election years. This is the percentage of voters who were non-Hispanic whites aged 45 or older in the two elections...

2010: 54%
2008: 47%
