No Utah U.S. Representative who won their seat by 25+ points has ever been defeated in the subsequent general election.
A majority of the 17 seven-term U.S. Senators in history have either retired, resigned, or died in office, but five of the six who ran for reelection were victorious.
Since the passage of the 17th Amendment all but seven states have been represented by a single party in the U.S. House and Senate for at least one Congress.
With no candidate polling outside of the low 30s, Utah’s winner could break a 104-year old record for the lowest percentage of the vote to carry a state.
Even victorious Democratic nominees have a few rotten eggs on their electoral scorecards, with 10 failing to win even 30 percent of the vote across nearly three-dozen states.
The independent presidential hopeful is on the ballot in only 11 states, but could shatter a record if he wins Utah.
If a handful of toss-up races all end up in the Democratic column, the party will have its strongest showing in races for governor since its formation nearly 190 years ago.
Since 1974, Utah Democrats are 0-32 against GOP U.S. Representatives heading into the 13th rematch election between major party U.S. House nominees in state history.
Since 1972, all seven sitting U.S. Senators who ran for reelection in the cycle of their failed presidential bid won another term – each by double digits.
The last 12 two-term governors who sought reelection over the last 20 years were all victorious with more than 70 percent winning a third term since the late 1700s.
