Ratio of Republicans in State Upper Legislatures

Here’s an interesting relationship. The graph shows the percentage Republicans in the states Lower Legislatures versus the Upper Legislatures.

It would appear that if you’re a Republican, you have the best chances of winning an election in the lower house in states where the upper house is split. You will have a hard time in states where the upper house is either mostly Republican or Democratic.

Go figure…
