House Speaker Paul D. Ryan’s announcement on Wednesday that he is retiring from Congress at the end of his term shocked many and increased Republicans’ anxiety about their ability to hold on to control of the House.

Mr. Ryan is part of a wave of representatives and senators from both parties who have announced plans to retire at the end of their terms, and research suggests that Democrats can make significant gains in the 2018 midterm elections.
