Nancy P. will be sweating bullets. Smallest Party Majority in over a Century. HOUSE DEMOCRATS are going to begin the 117th Congress with a razor-thin majority that could leave the chamber effectively ungovernable. Man is this cutting it close or what?
THIS IS THE SMALLEST DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY we could find since 1893. There will be special elections to fill FUDGE’S and Rep. CEDRIC RICHMOND’S (D-La.) seats, and then the Dem majority will grow once again. But special elections take time.
Democrats severely underperformed in congressional races in November’s elections, losing seats after Pelosi predicted a double-digit gain.
