Vermont

1 seat: 1 I      D 54

The House's lone Member elected as an independent, Bernie Sanders is now treated by the Democrats as a member, with Democratic candidates discouraged from challenging him a result that gives Vermonters a two-choice system, if nominally a multi-party one. Democratic performance rose less in Vermont than in the rest of New England in 1996, but Sanders appears safe unless he opts to run for the Senate.

 A.L. Bernard Sanders (I), 1990
