John Fund: Size of GOP Senate Majority Still Unclear

By    |   Tuesday, 04 November 2014 11:48 PM EST

It's clear that Republicans have won control of the Senate, veteran political pundit John Fund told Newsmax TV's Ed Berliner and J.D. Hayworth on Tuesday night, but what's not clear yet is what the margin will be.

"The question now is will they win enough seats," said Fund. "It probably starts at around 53 out of 100 seats that they are going to be having a good chance of keeping the Senate in 2016, when so many more Republican seats will be up."

Pollster John Zogby, who acknowledged that he projected Charlie Crist would win in Florida although he ended up losing the race to Republican incumbent Gov. Rick Scott, told Hayworth there are still some very close races.

"New Hampshire was very critical as far as the Democrats are concerned, although they're losing control," said Zogby. "There's no question about it, it's only a question now of just how many, if in fact the Republicans do get to those 53 seats or 52 seats that John Fund is talking about."

In Virginia, Republican Ed Gillespie is well ahead of expectations, but so much of heavily Democratic Fairfax County has still not been counted, said Zogby. "That race right now is down to a few hundred votes, and it looks to me like Mark Warner holds that."

Further, he said, the North Carolina race is still too close to call.

"Colorado is very interesting, yet it looks like the Republican there is leading by five or six points," said Zogby. "Whatever comes in late from the Democratic areas, and there's still a lot of Democratic areas that haven't been counted, I don't think they're going to offset that. It looks like Mark Udall probably, I'll hedge a little bit, but probably goes down."

Meanwhile, Zogby said Virginia is getting "very difficult to poll, but there'll probably be a recount because it is very close, and in Florida as well."

The election also showed that millennials are not turning out to vote despite efforts to attract them, said Zogby. Exit polls showed that about 12 percent of voters were 18-29, compared to 10 percent in 2010 and 19 percent in the last two elections.

Zogby says millennial voters can be attracted to vote in higher numbers "if there is a charismatic candidate."
