We not only have a reactionary Supreme Court and a GOP Congress, but we have 31 state legislatures in the hands of the Republicans, only 11 with the Democrats and 8 split between the state's upper and lower house. We also have 31 GOP governors and only 18 Democrats.
Beyond this, over time things have gotten worse. For example the GOP has controlled the US Senate and/or the House for 16 years since the 1980s, a level not seen since before the Roosevelt administration. Further, a majority this shift occurred after the Clinton administration which claimed to be reaching for the American middle but actually was harming the Democratic base.
