He's going to be a lameduck from day one, he's not going get his prefered cabinet picks, he's not going to get anything done with a narrow house majority and a 52-48 R majority in the senate, no court packings, no DC/PR Statehood. The Supreme Court is 6-3 conservative, they're going to dismantle the ACA, also the Democrats are going to get slaughtered in 2022/off-year elections.

The Democratic party is also going go in a state of civil war with radical leftists in the one side, and centrists on the other, now that Trump is not POTUS anymore/for now.

Then 2024 happens where Rs will have a favorable map for the senate, starting out with 3 automatic pickups (OH, MT, WV) and more toss-up races for pickings, possibly putting Rs with a 60 seat majority.

Enjoy it while it lasts!

This take aged surprisingly well. Biden hasn’t done anything and Dems are deadlocked. So long to the “coalition of the ascendant” which will “fundamentally transform” the nation!

Well, he did say “nothing will fundamentally change”

Yeah, "surprisingly well," except for the facts that, y'know, Biden obviously hasn't been a lame-duck since Jan. 20th, that he got his preferred Cabinet picks & has gotten sh*t done not only with a narrow House majority but with a Democratic majority in the Senate because Woodbury couldn't fathom last Nov. that GA, right after voting non-Atlas blue for the first time in forever, could possibly dare to do so again(!) less than 2 months later, & that he's appointed more federal judges in his first year in office than any President - including Trump at McConnell's behest - since Nixon. Sure, there's no DC/PR statehood, but last I checked, the 6-3 SCOTUS didn't dismantle the ACA, & it's gonna be pretty hard for the Democrats to "get slaughtered in 2022/off-year elections" when the GOP's God-Emperor literally ordered his base to sit out those upcoming elections because he's still upsetti-pasketti about both losing last Nov. & then having to watch his self-coup fail.

Even if we were to generously & laughably describe the reconciliation negotiations as a literal "state of civil war" in the Democratic Party "with radical leftists in the one side, and centrists on the other," the fact that Trump isn't POTUS anymore has finally allowed us to still do a lot of sh*t that we wanna collectively do as a party, & lmao, he's clearly not gonna be POTUS again for a multitude of reasons that've been described on here time & time again (& not least because, once again, he literally just ordered his base to stay home in 2024), so Woodbury & you can get the f**k out of here with "for now."

In 2024, the GOP may have a favorable map for the Senate on-paper, but describing OH, MT, & WV as automatic pickups 3-years-out is laughable given their incumbents, almost as laughable as the assumption that they'll be anywhere near 60.

Cope harder & cry more!

I do think Brown and Tester can win, even if their races will be tough. But WV is a lost cause even if Manchin runs again. He'll have to outrun Biden by 35-40 points, and I just don't see that level of ticket-splitting happening in a federal race anytime in the next few years.
