Gubernatorial Elections Predictions

Governors have no direct effect on federal government, but they are important for what laws are enacted in your state. While there is no benefit in Congress to having a majority of governorships, having a majority means you can get through party policies more effectively through each state.

The Democrats currently have 19 governorships (including 1 indepedent whose Lieutenant Governor is a Democrat) and the Republicans have 31. We predict that the Democrats will make 2 gains giving them 21 governorships.
