Democrats are showing strong performance in 2023’s special elections, outperforming the partisan lean in the areas where the races were held by an average of 10%. They have won in parts of the country that typically support the party and have reduced GOP margins in traditionally conservative areas as well. While some Republicans caution against reading too much into special elections, Democrats see reason for optimism. They attribute their success to public support for abortion access after the Supreme Court’s decision, along with apprehension over former President Donald Trump’s potential comeback bid. Democrats believe they are in a good position for future elections, though Republicans are concerned about their party’s handling of the abortion issue and lack of unity over Trump. While special elections may not be perfect predictors of major election cycles, strategists on both sides expect the Democratic focus on abortion and Trump to continue leading up to the 2024 presidential race.
