THE (IM)BALANCE OF STATE POWER
TRIFECTA (noun): When one party holds all 3 positions of state government (House, Senate, and governorship). When one party controls a whole state.
The Republicans have 26 state trifectas. The Democrats only have 6. The GOP has unchecked power in more than half the country.
(These trifecta numbers will change in 2018, thanks to recent Democratic wins in New Jersey and Washington state! As newly elected officials are sworn in, we’ll update the numbers on this page.)
