The economy was suffering the Recession of 1958, which Democrats blamed on Eisenhower. The President's Republican Party lost 48 seats in this midterm election, increasing the Democratic Party's majority to a commanding level.[1] Another factor which may have contributed to the Democratic gains include public consternation over the launch of Sputnik and Cold War politics.
