Breaks the mold of midterm election literature by focusing on the consequences of US midterm elections rather than on the causes of anti-administration patterns. Examines historical results from 1894 to 1998, places midterm elections into four distinct categories, and uncovers seven consistent ways midterm election harm the president and his party. Concludes that midterm elections should be considered an additional check in the US political system that helps to assure two- party balance. Annotation c.
