America today has not so much elected a president as it has UNELECTED a president for whom the prospect of 4 more years of rancor, bombast, and division was too much to stomach.
This is still largely a center-right nation that aligns more on policy with conservative views than with the liberal agenda of the “Progressives”. This election was Donald Trumps’s to lose and he did a masterful job of it with the tipping point likely being his behavior in the first presidential “debate”. I suspect a lot of minds were made up on that day.
Democrats need to now be careful to not misinterpret the mood of the country and believe that they have a mandate to push through the ultra liberal ideas of the far left. Joe Biden was elected with only one mandate. That is to bring some harmony and lessen the rancor that has made effective government a near impossibility in recent years.
