I was trying to find out more about districts who voted for one party for president and the other for House. We have data on this for 1972 to 2016. I am asking because I'm researching polarization.

According to preliminary results, Biden is ahead by 3.7 points nationally and Dems have narrowly held a House majority. Biden has been declared the winner as well.

How many districts split their tickets for president and House? And did this beat the low in 2012 or 2016?

  • Low of 2026? What districts are you referring to? There's only 425 House districts, of course. – Azor Ahai -him- Nov 15 at 15:52

    You are wrong Azor. The low was in 2012 and there are 435 districts. – Michael Mormon Nov 15 at 15:58

    I'm afraid election data of this type takes a while to be compiled - from experience, an answer to this question will probably only be available around the end of January. – CDJB Nov 16 at 9:59
  • Okay. We'll revisit it when the answer is available. – Number File Nov 16 at 12:20
