Would it be correct to say the Democrats are too big to fail? They hold the majority of every section of government except for Congress, so maybe we should focus on individuals not democrats.

The majority of governors are Republican. Your "facts" may not be 100% accurate.

Sorry forgot governors arent congress members. Still its a difference of a couple dozen compared to the thousands of democrats of similar amounts of power.

Since the last election:

Republicans control both chambers in 32 states, while Democrats have total control of just California, Delaware, Hawaii, Oregon and Rhode Island.

Republicans now control the governor’s house or the state legislative chamber in 44 states with full control in 25 states. Nebraska is the exception because its legislature is nonpartisan.

As it has on the national level, Democratic power in the states has eroded during President Obama’s two terms.

Under Obama, Democrats lost a total of 919 seats in state legislatures nationwide, according to NCSL data.

In individual terms, today there are 823 Democratic state senators out of a total of 1,972 seats nationwide, while Republicans now have 1,089 seats.

These numbers came out the day after the election in November.

Yet Democrats hold literally all non elected positions of power other than Trumps coattails.

The EPA, the school system, which is practically a communist run system, literally all the non elected government except for small bunches here and there. 99% of government workers are not elected.
