The will be more Democrats from California alone – 45 – in the 116th Congress than 36 other states combined, the analysis said.

The analysis also noted a significant reduction in so-called “purple states” that have both a Democratic and Republican senator. Once 27 states during the Reagan administration, there are only nine now.
