Smart Politics: Republicans have dominated governships across upper Midwest, not just South Dakota

Smart Politics has come out with an analysis of Republican domination of governorships across the upper Midwest. Here’s an excerpt:

A Smart Politics study of 311 Upper Midwestern gubernatorial elections finds that Republicans have been in power 72.3 percent of the time across Iowa, Minnesota, the Dakotas, and Wisconsin, with Democrats governing just 23.4 percent of the time, and other parties at 4.3 percent.

By the end of 2010, Republicans will have been in office for a collective 522 years and 4 months in the five-state region, compared to just 168 years and 11 months for Democrats, and 31 years and 1 month for other parties.
