This article is part of the series: Politics and government of the United States

The 2010 United States midterm elections will be held on Tuesday, November 2, 2010. All 435 seats in the United States House of Representatives and 37 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate will be contested in this election along with 38 state and territorial governorships, many state legislatures, four territorial legislatures and numerous state and local races.

The GOP lost heavily in the 2006 and 2008 elections, giving up Congress and the White House. Congressional Republicans were almost unanimous in opposing the key elements of the Obama administration domestic policy in 2009-2010, while generally supporting its foreign policy in Afghanistan and Iraq. With the economy continuing to falter, support for Obama and the Democrats has suffered significantly. Political analysts in October 2010 predict sweeping Republican gains in the 2010 midterm elections, pointing to the swing that would be generated on current polling, and an "enthusiasm gap" that measures Republican voters to be significantly more engaged than Democratic voters.
