What Happened in the Minnesota Statewide Elections?

  • Historical middle partisans made up a larger proportion of the electorate than they did in 2014, as Republicans failed to keep pace in turnout.
  • While Senator Klobuchar over-performed Representative Walz, both candidates made up significant ground that had been lost with middle partisans, Democrats, and white college-educated women by Secretary Clinton in 2016.
  • Democratic support bounced back in rural and suburban areas, but gains will have to be maintained in the future beyond 2018 to sustain Democratic control of Minnesota.
