Republican lost the House in 2018 due to reactions to Donald Trump and the overhanging Mueller Russia investigation. In 2020 Republicans lost the Presidency to Joe Biden in a hotly disputed election result fraught with voter fraud allegations. After a runoff of 2 seats in Georgia in January, 2021, Republicans lost the Senate (50-50). With the Presidency and both houses of Congress now lost, concerns over the integrity of our elections, and Democrats threatening to change election laws, abolish the Electoral College and pack the Supreme Court, Republicans fear for the future of the country that they will never win another election. The previous decade, Republicans won the House in 2010 mid-term election, retaining the House in 2012 and claiming the Senate in the 2014 mid-terms. The Republicans continued their climb back to power in 2016 by retaining the House and Senate and adding the Presidency as Donald Trump won a resounding electoral college victory claiming 30 states. Though he lost the popular vote, President Trump moved into 2017 with a populist victory, a conservative agenda and control of the Congress to roll back President Obama's liberal policies.

It’s Been One Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Week For The Democratic Party

from The Federalist,

We witnessed five catastrophes worsen for Democrats, all in the course of one week.

It has been one tough week for the left. 1. Impeachment for political theatre was squashed, 2. the Never Trump Lincoln Project further imploded when it was reported its leaders knew about the sexual harassment allegations against co-founder John Weaver, 3. the petition to recall California Gov. Gavin Newsom D-Calif. reached 1.5 million signatures to likely trigger a special election. 4. The Donald Trump Charlottesville rhetoric lie was debunked again, and 5. Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y. is facing bipartisan flak from lawmakers over his nursing home scandal ....

And, Republican support for Trump to play role in party up 18 points from early January.
