    Who or what can save the Democrats now? Mr. Sanders perhaps?

    Hopefully, work with Trump to improve the country, rather than be obstructionist a-holes like Reps were the last 8 years. Trump will get credited as a more effective president than Obama, since Dems have cared more about social improvements, and are more likely to compromise.

    Mr. Trump doesn't seem to me to be a typical Republican, he's more a Democrat in Republican clothing. Are the Democrats totally smashed? left in the lurch with little hope of recovery? Mr. Sanders could surely galvanise them, were there not record turnouts at his speeches?

    Bernie Sanders is not a Democrat.

    Paul Ryan was on Fox News pushing for the privatization of Medicare; doubt very much that seniors (who voted heavily for Republicans) will like that very much. We'll see if Trump goes along with the Congressional Republican agenda; if so, I suspect the Dems fortunes will rebound fairly quickly.

    I can remember back when Obama was elected and people said that Republicans need to change to get the WH again.

    I don't think Hillary would have defeated any Republicans. It wasn't that the Republicans needed to change but they just needed to run against a bad enough opponent.

    Obama was no Reagan. Reagan got Bush senior elected but Obama couldn't get Hillary elected.

    If Trump can be a man for the people as Reagan was before he got shot, we will see Republicans in charge until an establishment type takes office.

    The Democrats don't need saving. With Trump in the White House and the GOP in control of Congress, all the Democrats have to do, is sit on the sidelines, and wait for the political honeymoon to end. The population will soon discover Trump and Co. won't be able to keep even 20% of their lofty promises, and the mood of the country will swing in the other direction, since the GOP won't be able to blame the Democrats for their lack of progress. Trump and Co. is on a very short leash here. It should be interesting to watch. 😉

    That may be all it takes to make this a one-party state. Republican, possibly relabeled.

    Surely it will be political suicide to repeal Medicare? Maybe this is Paul Ryan's payback: just push through extremely unpopular measures and force Trump to defend them.
