Mid-term elections 2022. Congress elections won't be decided till December?  It is possible

This scenario is possible because Georgia has three candidates: Raphael Warnock, the Democratic Party candidate, Herschel Walker, the Republican Party candidate, and a third – Chase Oliver, the Libertarian Party candidate.

On November 8, Americans elect members of the House of Representatives and 1/3 of the Senate. Pre-election polls indicated that the Republican Party would win a majority in the House of Representatives, while the situation remained open in the Senate, in which the Democratic Party had a minimal advantage before the election (with a 50-50 split, the deciding vote being US Vice President Kamali Harris, who – according to the Constitution – He is the President of the Senate).

Currently – as shown by the forecast of the results of the Edison Research Studio, cited by Reuters – the Democratic Party can count on 48 seats in the Senate, and the Republican Party – 47 seats.

According to election law in Georgia, if no candidate for the Senate receives an absolute majority of votes, an “overtime” is necessary, in which the two candidates with the best result face off.

Pre-election polls indicated that the Republican Party would win the majority in the lower house of Congress, but did not determine who would win the majority in the Senate.

Such “overtime” will take place on December 6. After counting 98 percent of the votes. Commission, the Democratic candidate received 49.4 percent. Votes cast, Republican candidate – 48.5 percent.

The Republican candidate is asking his constituents to be patient and insisting that he does not want to fail.

Warnock joked Monday night that “there’s a cross-party agreement not to mix politics and gratitude” — hinting at potential election overtime in the state.

The Republican Party — as Edison Research points out — already has 199 seats in the House of Representatives — 19 seats short of the party’s majority. Pre-election polls indicated that the Republican Party would win the majority in the lower house of Congress, but did not determine who would win the majority in the Senate.
