County Partisan ratings are changing after the 2022 midterm

Republicans have swept every statewide office by double-digit margins this year. As the headliner, Gov. Greg Abbott collected approximately 55 percent of the vote and set the tone for every statewide race on the ballot.

This provides another data point for government partisanship. The Texan Texas Partisan Index – an average of all nationwide results over a series of consecutive election cycles – placed the state’s partisan bias at R-54%. After that half-time, that rating rose to R-56%.

Look at the new partisan tendencies versus their old ones for each county in the state.
