While the 2020 presidential race has been called in favor of Democratic President-elect Joe Biden, Republicans did overwhelmingly well in both state and other national elections. Gains made across the board point to the fact that Republicans and right-leaning policies appealed to voters far better than Democrats did.

In one of the most important sets of wins, Republicans will exit the 2020 election cycle with majorities in 62 of the country’s 99 state legislative bodies. Now holding a majority in state legislatures, the win arguably serves to vindicate conservative values, showing a gain for Republicans who in 2010 left the midterms controlling just 58 of the country’s 99 state legislative bodies.
