THE (IM)BALANCE OF STATE POWER

TRIFECTA (noun): When one party holds all 3 positions of state government (House, Senate, and governorship). When one party controls a whole state.

The Republicans have 26 state trifectas. The Democrats only have 8. The GOP has unchecked power in more than half the country.

We've created an interactive map to track the trifectas and flippable states.

It wasn’t always this way: Republicans invested much more in state politics after 2008 than Democrats did, and it worked. Over a dozen states flipped red, and GOP leaders used voter suppression and unfair voting maps to keep themselves in charge. Now we’re seeing a wave of harmful laws in those red trifecta states.

At Flippable, we plan to reverse this trend by flipping 100 state seats blue in 2018. We invite you to get involved so we can flip seats, win states, and restore our country’s democracy.
