The Jedi are not the Republic, but the Sith are the Empire. And Sith infighting and turnover on the Dark Council has sent the Empire reeling, but Republic victories on Balmorra and Corellia has given the Republic momentum. I'd also like to add that the Bounty Hunter defeating the Supreme Chancellor is going to be a net negative for the Empire. Janarus is presented in the game as an ineffective leader much like Neville Chamberlain or Jimmy Carter. Saresh, on the other hand, is a very strong leader (you could say she's like Winston Churchill or Ronald Reagan) who gets the Rift Alliance in line (something Janarus couldn't do, he assigns the Barsen'thor to be his representative to them out of frustration), and is able to get new laws passed to grant additional funding to the Republic military.
From what im getting Saresh is aggressive but incompetent . If you play the trooper you will freak out with decision to

And if you play the consular she

Supposedly Saresh is a member of the Star Cabal.

No, it hasn't, and no it doesn't. The tradition is for the Republic to be on the verge of complete collapse, and to be saved at the last minute by a Deus Ex Machina in the form of a Big Damn Hero. Since this is a Bioware game, the Republic survives on the good graces of Revan.

Revan saved the Republic from the Mandalorians.
Revan saved the Republic from Darth Malak
Revan saved the Republic from the Empire, by using whatever silly mental link he has with the Emperor to convince him to make a Treaty with the Republic instead of following through on the massive blow dealt by the sacking of Coruscant and the routing of the Jedi.

The fact is the Republic's massive size and age is more often a major liability than a 'sleeping giant' type scenario. They have more space than they can reliably defend, even when they can actually get a consensus about how to do it in the first place.

So again, I'm not disputing that the Republic currently has the upper hand in the War, but declaring them the Victors all ready or the Empire to be finished is ridiculously overreaching.

The empire never ever had a chance to win over the republic. They were to few in number and doomed because of the sith teachings. the emperor only started the war because of his own secret plans - it was never planned to win.

if you have played both sides and the different classes you get a nice picture of the whole mess and the secrets plots. at least after the incidents of corellia you know, that the empire cannot win anymore. but that doesn't matter in times of the most different mass destroying weapons - the "ultimate" villian, the emperor - still lives and tries over and over again to "escape" the certain (even if it's far away in the future) death.

ultimately every plot leads to a combined attack (imp with reps hand in hand) against the emperor. the rep class stories lead naturally to this event and EVEN the empire class stories indicats this (sith inquisitor who has the sith ancestors on his side - the sith warrior who destroys anything in his path - the imperial agent on different endings - and even the bounty hunter one).
