President Morgan's chances of winning were initially considered guaranteed in the middle of his term as his party had won both the House and the Senate in 1994 for the first time in decades. He was able to regain ground as the economy began to recover from the early 1990s recession with a relatively stable world stage. He went on to win re-election with a substantial margin in the popular vote and electoral college. The Republican Party was able to maintain a majority in both the House of Representatives and the Senate.
