    WHY do they need to "switch"? aren't they voting repuglican 95 percent of the time NOW, with no incentive (from the repug party) to do so?

    your question doesn't make sense.

    •  95% is certainly hyperbole (3+ / 0-)

      and frankly as is the rest of your statement.

      Yes there are conservative dems that vote against progressive agenda at times but that's not the same thing as voting for the republicans.

      I wondered if there were ConservaDems who may consider a party switch to avoid being in the minority party in the event the Senate changes hands. Chris' point was that anyone seeking reelection would not do so for fear of being Teabagged. I asked if there were some who were on track to retire who wouldn't have that concern.

      For example, in my state of CA, DiFi has flirted with DINOism for much of her career. Many feel she won't seek reelection due to her age (and possibility of a primary challenge). While I think the likelihood of her switching is practically zero, I'm not as familiar with Senators from other states who have an even more Conservative record than DiFi.

      Is that clearer?
