November 16, 2012 And 10 days after the election, three other too-close-to-call House races also remain undecided — in North Carolina, Arizona and Louisiana
November 15, 2012 A new Pew post-election survey also finds voters pessimistic about partisan cooperation, and still most concerned about the economy and jobs.
November 15, 2012 There has been no dearth of post-election Republican self-flagellation. But the party is still sorting out solutions, wrangling over whether its problems lie in its positions on issues ranging from immigration to women's reproductive health, or simply in its sales job with the voting public.
November 10, 2012 The election thumping Republicans got Tuesday at the hands of Latino voters was severe. To formulate a fix for what went wrong, the party will need help from influential Republicans like former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.
November 7, 2012 Utlimately, the most important legacy of the first big-money campaign unleashed by the Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling may have been allowing rich individuals to prop up Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum — prolonging the bitter GOP primary fight and perhaps crippling Mitt Romney's presidential bid.
November 7, 2012 Voters in North Carolina put a Republican in their governor's office for the first time in two decades, and New Hampshire elected a new female Democratic governor. But the closely watched races in Montana and Washington, where Democrats currently serve as governors, remained too close to call.
November 6, 2012 Bloopers and stumbles made the news this presidential campaign, but Barack Obama's re-election was powered by plans begun on the ground four years ago. Here's how he did it.
November 6, 2012 anWhile the occupant of the governor's office is historically far less important than the party that controls the state legislature, top state officials in coming years are expected to wield significant influence in at least one major area: health care.
November 4, 2012 Tuesday offers a smorgasbord of possible history-making opportunities across the nation — from New Hampshire, which could end up with the nation's first all-female congressional delegation, to Arizona, which could elect its first Hispanic U.S. senator.
November 1, 2012 Win or lose on Election Day, Republican Mitt Romney has already made history as the first Mormon to win a major party presidential nomination. But has his race for the White House changed Americans' perceptions and stereotypes of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?
November 1, 2012 Yes, another poll. But this one could make both Democrats and Republicans smile.
October 30, 2012 Any polls taken after the storm, and while millions of Americans' lives remain disrupted, carry with them a very real potential for accuracy problems, says an expert on public opinion research. In fact, he says the presidential election survey world now needs to be divided into before and after Sandy.
October 26, 2012 Each of the 30 states to consider constitutional amendments that would outlaw such unions has adopted the ban. That may change on Election Day, when voters in Maryland, Washington, Maine and Minnesota make their decision on whether to recognize gay marriage.
October 25, 2012 Republicans retain hopes for a Senate takeover, but comments about rape and abortion by candidates in Missouri and Indiana aren't helping. The GOP needs to gain four seats to control the Senate if President Obama wins; three seats if Republican Mitt Romney emerges the presidential victor on Nov. 6.
October 24, 2012 Obama won easily in 2008, and Democrats have a commanding voter registration lead and ground-game advantages. But despite challenges, some of them attributed to the actions of Ron Paul loyalists, the Romney campaign is relying on an unorthodox strategy to take the Silver State.
