A search through history can prove how wrong they are: In 1645, one vote gave Oliver Cromwell control of England.
In 1649, one vote caused Charles I of England to be executed.
In 1776, one vote decided that America would speak the English Language instead of German.
In 1800, one vote kept Aaron Burr from becoming President, and that same one vote elected Thomas Jefferson as President.
In 1845, Congress came within one vote of abolishing West Point Academy.
In 1845, one vote brought Texas into the Union. In 1850, one vote admitted California to the Union.
In 1859, one vote made Washington a state in the Union.
In 1868, one vote saved President Andrew Johnson from being impeached.
In 1875, one vote gave Rutherford B. Hayes the Presidency of the United States.
In 1923, one vote gave Adolph Hitler leadership of the Nazi Party.
In 1941, one vote saved Selective Services, just weeks before Pearl Harbor was attacked.
