Observations and Insights

The Republican party is well placed to win the Gubernatorial election in November. While no polls have been released, here are some statistics that will support this hypothesis

In 2018, the Democrats won the gubernatorial election by a 6.4% margin, it was 7.1% in 2016 (Special election), 5.8% in 2014, 1.5% in 2010 and 7.9% in 2006. The Republicans need a 4% swing to win the 2022 election.

While the Democrats have an advantage on registrations, 500,000 out of 800,000 voters registered in the last 6 years have classified themselves as unaffiliated.

On Google Search, the Republicans and Democrats were 50% each in May 2018. In 2022, during the same week, Republicans are 71% of all searches or 42% ahead. In fact, during the 2020 election, the Republicans were ahead by just 6%.

On Social Media, Tina Kotek is trailing Christine Drazan at the moment.

All of this could change as the campaign rolls out in a few weeks but the environment does not favour the Democrats, for now.

The impact of Betsy Johnson is not yet clear at the moment but she is likely to cause considerable damage to both candidates.
