The left simply shifts power and legitimacy to whatever institutions it controls, elected or unelected, and then governs from there.

If Democrats lose both, then the Supreme Court suddenly becomes the most legitimate institution. If they lose all three, then it's the heroic regulators, watchdogs and activist non-profits who matter. Sultan Knish: Trump, Dictatorship and Competing With An Illiberal Left
