Decision Desk HQ is excited to announce the very first release of our brand new video series on YouTube! ’50 states in 50 days’ – DDHQ’s virtual road trip across America in the lead up to election day on November 8th. It’ll actually be our second trip around the country since we covered every state’s primaries already this year.
Decision Desk HQ is driven by our never-ending belief in transparency. When we released our 2022 U.S. House and Senate Forecast Model earlier this year, we emphasized that expanding access to election-related information – which experts in politics and other fields use to drive their decision making – is not only beneficial to civic engagement in America, but specifically improves people’s understanding of our democratic system. This new video series is an expansion of that enduring effort.
Instead of starting in Texas, which had the first primary of the 2022 election cycle way back in March, we ordered states alphabetically for this series. As such, we start in Alabama on Monday, September 19th, and end in Wyoming on Monday, November 7th.
Each video will focus on an individual state, and cover all of its congressional races. We’ll share DDHQ’s official 2022 forecast rating for each race at the time of upload, as well as any additional information worth noting. Then, we’ll close with a running tally of how many seats each party is projected to win in the Senate and the House, as well as a country-wide map showing where those projections have been made in both chambers.
Finally, on Election Day, Tuesday November 8th, we’ll release our final projections for every Senate and House seat from the 2022 Decision Desk HQ Forecasting Model.
And now, with all of that said, check out the first video from our brand new series: “Alabama Midterms Preview & Prediction I 2022 DDHQ”
