39. What happens if....?
What happens if 10% of the people who voted Republican in the '04 elections choose the straight Democratic ticket this time around? Not all the people who voted Republican consider themselves to be Republican, many say Independent, Libertarian or Democrat if asked.
Is it possible that there are that many, (approximately 5% of the total voters, since the country is almost half and half, Republicans and Democrats, with a lot of Independents also)?
Would it be enough to regain the House and the Senate?
I am guessing most of the people who call themselves Independent will be going Democratic for the next few elections.
