if narrowly. so right now they would get to 2 twenty 5. that's just a few seats over win. there's a margin of error and that leaves a scenario in which republicans retain the house.e . it's what happens if the democrats don't get the turnout that they need and they don't get enough crossover voting. >> let's go to those two scenarios. first one is the one where the democratic hopes are dashed. they don't take the 23 seats away from republicans. what has happened if that is the outcome on tuesday? >> the democrats are relying on this kind of cocktail which a heavy amount of turnout, new voters, people who haven't shown up in midterms before. with a dash of persuasion. and that's a few, it's less than one in ten, people who voted fo and voting for a democrat for the house this year. if most of them come back to the republican party, the republicans hold the house, the
democrats fall short. >> and if republicans hold the house, democrats will need a cocktail. let's go to the outcome where democrats have a big night. what's happened for that to happen? >> well, they've gotten that turnout and some of the early voting indicates that they might. and then they've gotten more independents to swing over towards them. remember, they're aiming at some of that crossover and persuading some more independents. if that happens then they get up into the 230s, 232 in our best estimate on that big night for the democrats. but in either case it will probably be a late night, john, before we know. >> that's probably accurate. they said the democrats have to flip 24 seats and retain control of the 194 seats they currently have to take control. of the house. more than half of the 24 are in the midwest. dean reynolds looks at one illinois race. choo cheri bustos is something of a rare bird in politics.
