Common John, you know the Party will survive any downturn. Any party that's survived 16 years in exile previously isn't going to die when they got the biggest ever popular vote for an incumbent president, even if it was ultimately a loss.
The Democrats are painting this as "the ultimate victory" when it was pretty much the same EC result as the previous Election only reversed. Everyone thought the Democrats were also finished after "losing to Donald Trump.... How fucking embarrassing is that! THEY COULDN'T BEAT DONALD TRUMP!".
Guys, most people overseas think BOTH your political parties are clearly in a general slump. Dudes this was nothing like "the trouncing of '08, the slightly less trouncing of '12", it was a barely managing to fall over the line first totally exausted and half dead. Anyone with half a brain is predicting a single-term president.... Even if it's "because Kamala will totally take over".
In reality the death of political parties is an extremely long drawn out process in which the core payed up dues paying Party membership basically suicides the party internally by long-term switching to a newer party on the exact same side of the political spectrum. Parties don't die from losing elections, they die from the core membership financially departing for a newer party.
That's how the Greens basically killed off the Australian Democrats and how they're trying but failing to kill the Australian Labor Party, Labor is better at defending itself from such aggressive actions.
