59. Which would mean Democratic turnout would be 20 percent HIGHER than usual
This is alarmist crap.

In mid term elections, the voter turnout is around 40%.

If 40% didn't vote and 60% voted, that would be 20% higher than usual for midterms and would be as high as the turnout in 2008 that elected Obama and was supposed to be a historically high turnout.
