Both of which would make you happy of course, although they both would be clear signs of decline.
I'm not sure that you even have a point other than that you don't like Trump. What does, "then the country is in such terrible mental and psychological condition that it may even be irreversible," mean in practical terms?
The GOP is likely to lose seats in the mid-term elections for the banal reason that the incoming President's party nearly always loses seats in the subsequent mid-terms. The only exception I can recall is 2002, when Republicans picked up votes from stupid voters scared of terrorism and thus rewarded the President who failed to stop the worst terrorist attack in American history.
