Joe Biden Has Won, But Trumpism Lives On

Had it not been for COVID-19, Trump would probably have won. The fact that it took a major cataclysmic event to shake a wannabe fascist from power does not speak highly of Biden and the Democrats. This fact shows that Trump, and the base that uncritically supports him, is not going away anytime soon.

Biden’s victory was not a permanent victory. Biden’s win also does not have teeth as of now. The Democrats have not won the Senate and have lost seats in the House of Representatives. The Democrats will still maintain a slim House majority, but not gain the Senate. If Democrats cannot win the Georgia Senate runoff seats in January, then Biden’s term will effectively be neutered.

If the Republicans keep control of the Senate, then Biden’s term will resemble much of Obama’s second term. It will be a whole lot of nothing getting done. Republicans will obstruct everything in ways that Democrats just would not do for Trump. With that as the case, progress will be stonewalled, and the blame will likely fall on Biden and the Democratic Party. It is not unlikely this could jeopardize Democratic control of the House.
