While polls currently showing Biden leading over Trump should be taken with intense skepticism, and I personally believe Trump will win reelection albeit with a lower electoral vote count, it also isn't with everything happening at once currently, out of the realm of possibilities that Trump loses this November. If that were to happen, we should be mentally prepared and have an idea of potential course of action moving forward.
He could always try and pull off a Grover Cleveland in the 2024 election, but I think there is a better option for him and the party that could to an extent take advantage of his potential 2020 loss. Currently Trump has a 92% approval with Republican voters and more importantly has key senators and politicians in the party completely under his sway. Many senate seats will be up for election in 2022 including Marco Rubio's seat in Florida, the state that also serves as Trump's official legal residence. If you are a big Marco Rubio, you will not like this plan, since Trump will challenge Rubio for the Republican nomination for the senate seat, which he will easily win. Just by name recognition and financial resources, Trump should have a 90% chance of winning the seat. The next step depends on the party balance in the Senate both after the 2020 election and the now 2022 elections. If the Republicans were to retain or keep a majority in the Senate, the best move would be to retire or demote McConnell and choose Trump as Senate Majority Leader.
Our overall goal should be regardless of Trump and the results of the upcoming presidential election, to slowly and subtlety move power and influence away from the office of President and towards Congress, specifically the Senate. This can be done with a few bills to curb the presidency, but most importantly it depends on how weak or strong the character of whoever is in both the White House and Congress. Understand, even if Trump wins reelection, very soon either in 2024 or 2028 Texas will go blue, and it will be virtually impossible for us Republicans to wins the presidency again unless some major event or party split or spoiler. Our best chance at success lies in a powerful Congress where we have a more viable electoral course. We could do this by going to a constitutional interpretation on limitations on the executive branch in many aspects similar to the Tea Party wave against Obama. For such a subtle but incredible transfer of power, we would need a very strong character as Senate Majority Leader. In this potential scenario, that someone for all the imperfections he has demonstrated so far could very possibly be Donald Trump, a person who even if not President, many people will still associate with the idea as the most powerful person in the country. Let me know your thoughts on this political strategy.
