Like right now, the GOP supports him, because, hey keep the Presidency to own the libs.
Yeah, I suspect if he gets a second term it'll look a lot like Bush's: Democrats will sweep the midterms, and conservatives will spend the last two years of his presidency pretending they never really liked him in the first place and this new nominee they've got is completely different.
Though that softpedals the sheer horror people are going to experience in the meantime. A second Trump term is still a nightmare, even if the last two years do end with his support crumbling and his own party starting to back away from him.

My original thought was that he wants to run a huge campaign about getting donations that he can pocket and lose, but unless I'm missing it, he's not really doing as much fund raising right now as that would entail.
He hasn't been out there having rallies, but he's furious about that and that's part of why he's been agitating to reopen the country.
That said, while he may not be out there personally raising money, his campaign has raised a lot of it on his behalf.
