Nate Silver did startlingly well in predicting the 2012 elections, now he predicts that the GOP stands a 60 percent chance of taking control of the Senate, gaining exactly six seats, the minimum number needed to do so. Here’s a Huffington Post story about it.
Two questions occur: what, if anything, can the Democrats do to turn things around and retain control of the Senate?
And should the worst happen, and it certainly looks like it WILL happen, how does this change the Democratic game plan with regard to retaining the gains made in the last six years and turning things around in 2016?
I personally think Obama will have to do a LOT of vetoing. I doubt the Republicans will be able to get the 2/3 majority needed to override a veto in the Senate, and that’s all that will save Obamacare and a lot of other legislation, too.
