My view is that IF a majority of civilians and soldiers had voted against Mr. Lincoln, it would have limited his chances of ending the war outright by March 4th.
It would have given him some problems, but until Mac took office, he was even more powerless than Lincoln. 

If a President McClellan had chosen to follow his party's official position, then there might have been a different outcome in the end.


"Might have been" seems to pile suppositions on suppositions.

Somewhere in there we seem to be agreeing, but we just haven't gotten the words right.
