These should also be the districts that suffer the greatest losses as the forces recede at the midterm. In addition to a statistical analysis of districts in the 1976–78 and 1984–86 election years, I present two case studies to illustrate the impact of surge and decline. In chapter 8, the analysis drops a final notch to that of the individual voter. I test several hypotheses of the revised theory of surge and decline about differences in the composition and behavior of presidential and midterm electorates.

While some midterms have left the president's party devastated, others have been far less costly. In eleven of the thirty-four post-1860 midterm elections, the president's party lost fewer than fifteen seats. Aside from the 1934 aberration of a nine-seat gain and the phantom gain of 1902 (when the president's party appeared to gain seats only because the total number of seats in the House increased in that election), the president's party sustained losses of fewer than five seats in three midterms, two of which were the midterms during and immediately following the Civil War.

3 For those not already familiar with this theory a synopsis is in order. A more intensive examination of the foundations and premises of the theory follows in chapter 2. ” While the obvious purpose of the theory is to explain the midterm change in the electoral fortunes of the president's party, the theory is also concerned with another type of electoral change: the surge and decline of voter turnout from on-year to midterm elections. Turnout as well as support for the president's party drops in midterm elections.
