The 1930 United States midterm elections were held on November 4, 1930. Incumbent President of the United States Herbert Hoover and the Republican Party suffered substantial loses.

The Republicans lost fifty-two seats to the Democratic Party in the House of Representatives. While the Republicans maintained a one-seat majority after the polls closed, they lost a number of special House races (since some Republican members died) before the start of the new congress. This allowed the Democrats to take control of that chamber with a one-seat majority.

The Republicans also lost eight seats to the Democrats in the U.S. Senate, but were able to maintain a one-seat majority in that chamber.[1]
