While many Republicans are still willing to live on Donald Trump’s coattails, they will say he won and they will sue 80,000,000 American voters to prove that it is so. But in fact the American voter repudiated Donald Trump out of hand.
So while some on the left are gloating about a Joe Biden win…you need to cool your jets. President-elect Joe Biden will move into the White House on January 20, 2021…but the Democrats took a major hit in the House of Representatives and barely held the majority. And although they spent some serious money to take back the Senate, they clearly didn’t do that and are now pegging their hopes on the Georgia run off elections to get to a 50 – 50 split…with Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris as the tie breaker.
And that is the best case scenario…the Senate may yet be under the control of Senate Majority Leader and Grim Reaper Mitch McConnell. And it will take every skill set that Joe Biden picked up in the Senate to get any of his agenda or even his cabinet approved before 2022.
There is no mandate. There is no majority. This is going to be a long hard slog for at least two years…and there is a good chance that nothing will get done.
