Democratic

The main factor that led to the Republican gains during this election cycle was concern over World War II and American involvement.[2]

Roosevelt's Democratic Party lost 45 seats, retaining only a slender majority even though they lost the popular vote by over 1 million votes (3.9%). This would not occur again until 1952, when the party who won the popular vote did not also win the majority of the House of Representatives.

As of 2019, this is the last time the House of Representatives was made up of five parties.

IndianaEdit

Indiana was redrawn from 12 districts to 11 after reapportionment; most of the districts underwent minor boundary changes, and the old 11th district was divided up, distributing Madison County to the 5th, Hancock County to the 10th, and consolidating the parts of Marion County in the old 11th and Indianapolis-based 12th into a new 11th.[4] This forced incumbents William H. Larrabee and Raymond S. Springer to run against each other in a district drawn mainly from Springer's old district.
