Joe Biden's win did not translate into Democratic party wins. The party lost seats in the House, failed to take back the Senate, did not turn a single governorship, and lost massively in down-ballot races across the country. That leaves a majority of statehouses in Republican hands for the all-important, once-a-decade redrawing of Congressional districts. Save for Biden's win, itself an isolated event, a more comprehensive failure would be hard to conceive.
Without the noxious, corrupt, and catastrophically failed Donald Trump to run against, Democrats do not have a compelling story or a compelling set of economic policies to run on. If they did, they wouldn't have lost so massively down ballot. This bodes poorly--or worse--for their prospects in the 2022 midterms.
