States Increasingly Voting Along National Trends

The Wall Street Journal notes the field of competitive Senate contests "is considerably narrower than in years past."

"That's because data point to increasingly nationalized Senate races, with results of those contests more frequently matching a state's presidential preference. And with state voting patterns becoming less variable, it's becoming more difficult for Democrats to compete in red states, or for Republicans to mount a viable bid in blue states."
