METHOD: The partisan swing is a way to measure the relative performance of campaigns. The partisan swing in all these cases assumes that Republicans are generally favorable to these candidates and that Democrats are generally unfavorable. The equation is: Partisan swing = (Winning candidate pct. – Losing/2nd place candidate pct. + Democratic pct. – Republican pct.)
