Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The far right tends to vote for dominant personality leadership figures, whereas libruls are more policy and process focused. Republicans probably need Trump to stick around for a while, to keep their base agitated.

McConnell's focus now will be to resuscitate the party of NO and prevent Biden from actually doing anything - counting on Libruls to get disillusioned blaming Biden for the failure to get anything done.

The importance of the two Georgia senate elections cannot be over-stated, if Biden is even going to get his cabinet picks confirmed, and any worthwhile legislation passed. Hopefully Republicans will be somewhat deflated by Trump's loss resulting in a lower turn-out in January.

If Trump is still resisting evacuating the White House at that stage, Democrats will be energised and independents will be wanting a new administration formed, so hopefully the Georgia election margin can be repeated then.
