A Look Back at US Govt Party Control

This chart from wikipedia is a bit strange, but it captures all of the information.

It shows the obvious, that Democrats have had more time in control over the US Govt since 1939 than Republicans. But it fails to capture the "boll weevil" Democrats or the Southern Conservative Democrats who gave Republicans an effective majority in the House and Senate in the 1980s. It also shows how unusual Clinton's presidency was in modern history - a Democrat with a Republican Congress.
