103rd Congress

The 103rd Congress was analyzed because it marked the last session of Congress when the Democrats retained a Senate majority, which they had for quite a long time up to the 103rd Congress, until the following 1994 Senate elections, when the Democrats lost their Senate majority to the Republicans.

The Democrats controlled a Senate majority, by securing 57 Senate seats, while the Republicans faced a Senate minority, with only 43 Senate Seats.  Disproportionately, however, it is crucial to note that the 57 seats for the Democrats represented a staggering 64 million people, while the 43 seats for the Republicans represented only 33 million people
