Monopoly Politics ReportIn Monopoly Politics 2018 FairVote explores the extent, causes and remedies to the lack of competition and partisan fairness in U.S. House elections and the increasing polarization of members elected to the U.S. House of Representatives.

In our detailed analyses, we discuss the power of partisanship in determining election outcomes, the advantages of incumbency, and the decline of cross-over representatives. We explore the relative importance of money, gerrymandering, and the self-sorting of Americans into ideologically polarized communities in producing congressional dysfunction.
