I’m having problems with the fact the U.S. Senate is split 50/50. There are two senators from each state, there are 50 states, therefore there are 100 U.S. Senators in D.C.

Each senator commits to either the Republic or Democratic party. However, two senators are independent. That makes 48 Democrats, 50 Republicans and 2 Independents.

Who has the majority?
