Cheer up, Democrats: Biden could’ve easily lost

Even if a couple of January run-off races in Georgia give President Biden a friendly Senate, the 2020 election still wouldn’t be the “blue wave” that many Democrats hoped for. No Biden landslide almost surely means no Green New Deal, no big tax hikes on the rich, and no Supreme Court packing. Nor does the size of the Biden win represent the sort of overwhelming and national, soul-cleansing repudiation of Trumpism that Democrats and NeverTrumpers had desperately desired.

Still, anti-Trumpers of all flavors should be ecstatic at the results from Tuesday, even if Republicans end up holding the Senate.
