The 2012 United States House of Representatives elections were held on Tuesday, November 6, 2012. Elections were held for all 435 seats representing the 50 U.S. states and also for the delegates from the District of Columbia and five major U.S. territories. The winners of this election cycle are serving in the 113th United States Congress. This was the first congressional election using districts drawn-up based on the 2010 United States Census.

Although Democratic candidates received a nation-wide plurality by more than 1.4 million votes (1.2%) in all House elections,[6] the Republican Party won a 33-seat advantage in the state-apportioned totals, thus retaining its House majority. This disparity is often attributed to gerrymandering in the congressional redistricting process following the 2010 United States Census,[7][8][9] although such claims are disputed by some election analysts.[10][11]

In the previous century, on four occasions the party with a plurality of the popular vote was unable to receive a majority in the House, but only twice since World War II.[9] The last time was in 1952 and 1996, in which the GOP held a majority in the House. The 1942 election was last time that the Democrats held a majority in the House without winning the popular vote.[12]

Pre-election analysis and selected results[edit]

The following are the predictions for House districts where at least one out of the Cook Political Report, the Rothenberg Political Report, Roll Call, and Sabato's Crystal Ball did not agree that the district was "safe Democrat" or "safe Republican". Ratings from the New York Times are also included

Key:

  • Incumbents not running for re-election have parentheses around their name;
  • "(Open)" means that the seat was created in a state that gained one or more seats as the result of the 2010 census;
  • Where two incumbents are shown, that is also because of redistricting.

California's results

California retained its fifty-three seats: four new seats were created when four pairs of Representatives were redistricted to run against each other. An additional Republican incumbent, Gary Miller, won re-election in an entirely different district from the one he had previously represented.[59] The election featured the first use of the top-two primary system in which primary elections list candidates from all parties on one ballot, and the top two vote-getters advance to the general election. Two elections (30th and 44th districts) featured two Democratic incumbents running against each other.[60]

Florida[edit]

Florida gained two seats in reapportionment. As a result of the Fair Districts Amendment, approved by voters via referendum in 2010, the legislature could not take incumbency into account in drawing the lines.[61] As a result, two incumbent Republicans, John Mica and Sandy Adams, were drawn into the same district, creating a third new seat.[62]
