    I MADE A MISTAKE IN THE POLL.
    option 8 should read PARTY "A" IS PROBALLY DEMOCRATS


    Sorry


    Last year in a certain State/Commonwealth, PARTY "A" won a majority of seats (by 1 vote) in the State Senate. After 40 years Party "B" is now the minority party.

    Well yesterday, two members of the (new) majority party decided to caucus (but did not change party membership) with the minor party. With those two votes Party "B" had a vote and voted in a new Senate President.

    Party "A" wants to take Party "B" to court to determine who should control the state/commonwealth Senate

    So what do you think?

    I voted not sure on all three of them. It sounds kind of cool that the liberal Democrats were voted out, but I still have my doubts about Republicans taking their place. Are they conservative or are they moderates? Lately, I have been having my doubts as to where the hearts of most Republicans lie. We'll just have to see what happens in 2010. That will determine & set the stage for 2012.
