@kevcvs57 saidPeople are always so quick to write the obituary of parties when they have bad showings. In point of fact, while the Georgia election was a terrible result for Republicans (mainly Trump's fault), the 2020 election was not particularly bad for Republicans given the fundamentals.
It will but that will be splitting the conservative vote. It looks like the Dems have won the battle to keep their left wing in check longer than the Republicans could keep their right wing in check.
End result, you’ve seen your last Republican congress or MAGA POTUS for quite some time.
Assuming nothing really weird happens (I mean weirder than already has happened), it stands to reason that Republicans should be in good position for the 2022 midterms, as Democrats control all 3 branches of government and will not be able to keep their promises. Midterms tend to go against the party in power anyway.
