Still trying to make sense of the 2016 Presidential election? Prepare now for another shocker, as federal, state and local power shifts are predicted. History informs us that the midterms are unfriendly to the president’s party, especially when that president’s approval ratings are low. Thirty-three Senate and all 435 House seats are up for election on November 6, 2018, as well as governor, lt.governor, attorney general and many other Texas and Harris County positions, so candidates are vying to best their partisan peers in the primary elections this spring.
Once again, we turn to pollster and prognosticator Richard Murray to prepare us for what is to come in a series of two lectures before and after the March 6 Texas Primary Elections.
Richard Murray is the Bob Lanier Professor of Urban Public Policy and director of surveying for the Center for Public Policy at the University of Houston, where an endowed scholarship in his name was established in April 2008.
