Well the answer is going to be a theory, and not fact, because no person can say exactly who would have discovered America.  But at the time of Columbus, Spain and Italy were the main countries sending our explorers, so most likely it still would have been an explorer from that region. Also it could have been France or England to since there were many explorers coming from those countries.
