"more likely than not" – covers all from intuitive hunch to absolute certainty. Think of it this way: We're having a lottery. We'll know the answer for certain this time next year. If you're right, you get $10K. Which one would you pick?

"But I'm an independent!" – Go with whom you side with more frequently, or more idealistically. If you can't decide that, use the tax cuts vs. social programs as the dividing line. If you truly find that you're split, go with whomever you voted for in the last election that you voted in.

[EDIT: Holy tortured language! That's what comes from trying to write as neutrally phrased a question as possible. An "exists" or "is happening" should be assumed, somewhere in there, in some fashion].
