Bellwether Seats in Elections


Here’s one that’s always puzzled me… why is there such a thing where various seats in elections will constantly elect the sitting government? There are instances where this has happened for decades and decades, always picking the government of the time whether they be left or right leaning.

Why tho?

First there are status quo people. Why risk a change when you are already in a good position?

Also building a network of connections into the higher government is a lot harder when there is a new government every 4 years
