Mulligans and Updates

I figured out why I undercounted the number of Republicans in my earlier counts by one. It is because I had been simultaneously over counting the number of Democrats by one, thanks to Rep. Parker Griffith's (now R-AL) defection. He was showing as a Democrat in opposition in my numbers, so it did not impact my total counts. Here is where (I believe) we stand as we move into the procedural votes...

GOP: 178 opposed, 0 in favor
DEM: 218 in favor, 35 opposed

Projected total vote: 218 in favor, 213 opposed

We might have a flip one way or the other of a vote or two, but I think this will be very close to the final margin.
