1. Nope. Unless you include Lugar's seat which he lost in the primary.

3. No. The Senate still has lower turnover than the Chinese Politburo

USA! USA!

5. actually we had quite a decent amount of turn over

Snowe in ME, Lieberman in CT, Brown in MA, Kohl in WI, Webb in VA, Lugar in IN, Nelson in NE, Kyl in AZ, DeConcini in NM, Bailey Hutchenson in TX, Conrad in ND. 12% turnover is quite a lot.

4. No but two who for sure would have lost, retired instead

Nelson in NE would have lost and so would have Lieberman. Webb might well have lost as well.
