Partisan swing by Selected Lane and Clackamas Local Election Results


Republicans and business candidates are able to achieve a much greater partisan swing in Lane County than in Clackamas County.

Sources: Lane County Elections; Clackamas County Elections.

Method: The partisan swing equals the winning margin minus the difference between the Republican and the Democratic registration margins. A swing of zero means that the winning percentage exactly followed the partisan registration percentage. A positive swing means that the pro-business candidate won a greater percentage than the partisan registration would imply.
