Trump will do way better with these random republicans refusing to back him because it gives him something to fight against. Despite all the media proclamations for 4 years, Trump's GOP base is outstandingly loyal to him. 94% of Republicans voted for him, up from 92% in 2016.

A number of Trump's supporters do seem to be people who don't like politicians and the establishment - left or right.

surprisingly , trump can again probably run on being an outsider despite 4 years in office.  

Oddly, true. Biden is the most establishment president we’ve had since the first Bush. Trump is now the establishment of the GOP that he recreated. Cassidy, Hogan, Kasich, Romney, etc (the “good ones”) are now the outsiders.

Biden is going to to have a tough road. COVID was the time most wanted an establishment president. Without a major crisis, not going to be the case in 2024.

Depends if the voters give Biden credit for "ending" COVID or not and whether or not the removal of the crisis coincides with a strengthening economy. What could happen is this: Things look back at Midterms--GOP makes gains. Things continue to look bad until about early 2024, but then things start greatly improving. By the time the election comes around, enough voters might not want to switch administrations when the economy is finally going up again for the first time in years. 

Things definitely look bad for Democrats now, but they might have an opportunity or gain some good fortune.

The economy is already doing strong. What is not is inflation which will be a permanent problem and Biden already declared victory on 4th of July for covid. He has bungled this completely. FED tapering beginning in November till mid 2022 is also not ideal (but necessary) for the stock market and economy.

 

Meanwhile you can look at people who actually can assert victory such as DeSantis who made bold moves and somehow Florida has one of the lowest number of covid cases today. Trumps smartest strategy has been to lay low (not campaign in Virginia too) and let Biden screw it up for himself without inserting himself into the news weekly. 
 

Look at that article I mentioned. Biden voters are hoping for more free cash since they’re running low. That is not happening ever again. People’s expectations of what Biden will do remind me a lot of Obama in 2012 who narrowly won victory. 

the issue will be Biden trying to declare what a phenomenal job he did by 2024 and yet most average Americans will be dissatisfied with where we are as a country AND how they are doing financially. 
 

he really needed to have full power w the congress and senate to enact all the progressives dream bills and goals. Whether it was good long term (5-10 years)or not is beside the point. He is going to have absolutely nothing to point towards for accomplishments and even if they somehow pass this infrastructure bills, his base will be furious over the concessions they made to get manchin to agree. 
 

with covid “support” it is a slow trickle downward. There is no “major victory”

or happiness or satisfaction. Many people are living their lives mask free, etc depending on the state. When eventually mandates for indoor masks are done, nothing significant will change in people’s lives but dissatisfaction.
