Democracy in America is stuck in a rut, and the voting system, which leaves results unknown and undecided sometimes for weeks on end, is the least of it. President Biden has been weakened by the Republicans’ takeover of the House of Representatives. He will get nothing done on the domestic front between now and 2024. At the same time, the incoming House majority, though razor-thin, will by all accounts spend most of its time “getting even” with Democrats for depicting them as morons in thrall to Donald Trump.
