    If the Dems picked up more pro-business backing, that could so severely damage the GOP that it would make it a tiny opposition party. In which case the Democratic Party would have great divisions, but at least we would have a functioning government capable of doing things. Business interests are always going to have a seat at the table, so it might as well be as part of the Democratic Party. From an economic performance perspective, the Dems are already distancing themselves from the GOP, and the Tea Party movement is scaring the crap out of business. The two main points of conflict that remain between the Dems and business are taxes and regulation. But tax rates are not that important if you don't make any profits.
