Wicked Important ~ 2018 Mid-Term Elections
Here at Wicked Wonders VIP Bling, we stay the heck outta politics because we believe everyone has a valuable opinion and it's just best left out of business altogether. However, when talking about the midterm elections today, we can ALL unite around the importance of getting out to vote. No matter which side of the aisle you land, this mid-term cycle could be one of the most important elections in modern history.
What are the midterm elections and why are they important?
A midterm election refers to a type of election where the people can elect their representatives in the middle of the term of the executive branch (Presidency). The Senate has one-third of its members up for election every two years while the House has all its membership up for election every two years. With so much divide between parties today, it is important to understand the effect a mid-term election can have on a presidency. The party of the incumbent president tends to lose ground during midterm elections. Over the past 21 midterm elections, the President's party has lost an average 30 seats in the House, and an average 4 seats in the Senate; moreover, in only two of those has the President's party gained seats in both houses.
We just want you to know that, no matter what outcome you prefer, every single vote counts. Whether you want the President to succeed or fail, the midterm elections will have a drastic impact on that outcome. So get out there and make your voice heard today! (And don't forget to wear your patriotic bling while you do it!)
