Voter ID Laws: The Disenfranchisement of Minority Voters?

Extreme Referendum: Donald Trump and the 2018 Midterm Elections
Gary C. Jacobson analyzes the 2018 midterm elections. He finds that divergent popular reactions to Donald Trump’s presidency extended the trend toward increasingly partisan, nationalized, and president-centered midterm elections. The result was the most sweeping national referendum on any administration at least since the Great Depression.

Nothing on the Floor: Congress, the Territorial Delegates, and Political Representation
JONATHAN LEWALLEN and Bartholomew H. Sparrow examine the legislative activities of the congressional delegates representing the U.S. territories and the District of Columbia. They argue that even though delegates attract fewer cosponsors to their legislation than other House members and are not appointed to the most prestigious committees, their behavior across several indicators does not differ from that of the average House member.

The De-Institutionalization of Congress
ANTHONY J. CHERGOSKY and Jason M. Roberts argue that institutional changes in the United States Congress have eroded its capacity to enact laws and perform its essential duties. They maintain that the poor performance of Congress in recent years has resulted from these structural reforms which may not be permanent, but are difficult to reverse.
