FOR A GUY WHO SUPPOSEDLY LOST, TRUMP SURE HAD COATTAILS. FOR A GUY WHO SUPPOSEDLY WON, BIDEN SURE DIDN’T. How Democrats Suffered Crushing Down-Ballot Losses Across America.

This year, Democrats targeted a dozen state legislative chambers where Republicans held tenuous majorities, including in Pennsylvania, Texas, Arizona, North Carolina and Minnesota. Their goal was to check the power of Republicans to redraw congressional and legislative districts in 2021, and to curb the rightward drift of policies from abortion to gun safety to voting rights.

In all cases, Democrats came up short. None of their targeted legislative chambers flipped, even though Biden carried many of the districts that down-ballot Democrats did not. It could make it harder for Democrats to retain a House majority in 2022.

They did badly in Congressional races, too.
