Statistic Of The Day: U.S. Senate Control Will Be Determined By Less Than 4% Of U.S. Population Edition

From The Week:
34 states will have Senate elections this year, thanks to the rotating system of Senate terms,* But only about eight states have hotly contested races that will decide whether the GOP retakes the Senate: Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Louisiana, Kansas, New Hampshire, and North Carolina.* Just 11 million people are likely to turn out to vote for Senate races in those states this November,* which means that roughly 3.4 percent of the total population of the United States will decide who controls the Senate in 2015.
