2022 Election Results Maps
Uncovering campaign trends with heat maps: Comparing past and present results
I decided to take a look at how individual Republican candidates fared in the 2022 election and compare their results to those of other Republicans in the previous two elections, in 2020 and 2018. Heat maps can be a powerful tool for understanding trends in political campaigns. By comparing individual Republican candidates to the historical results, we can gain valuable insights into how campaigns are progressing and where they may be headed in the future. It is my hope that these maps will allow you to quickly and easily identify patterns and trends in the data.
All results listed are Republicans. More concentrated red coloration indicates a higher percentage republican returns. Blue means the district went Democrat, and purple means it was somewhere in the middle. Districts with no race are colored black.
Some maps are quite heavy, and the pages may take a few moments to load.
For those interested in learning to make maps like these, or work with this data, you can follow a tutorial I've created here.
Special thanks goes to the team at Harvard who did the hard work of pulling together the shapefiles for 2020 and 2018 that made this possible. Their work can be found here.
