The United States Senate elections of 1942 occurred midway through Franklin Roosevelt's third term as President. Although this election took place during World War II, the opposition Republican party made major gains, taking eight seats from the Democrats and one from an Independent. Various commentators have ascribed this to anger with the administration over Pearl Harbor, general irritation with the conditions of wartime, or the defeat of weak Democratic incumbents from the 1936 election. The Democrats nontheless retained a significant majority. Image File history File links Us_senate_result_1942. ... Image File history File links Us_senate_result_1942. ...
