I can't tell if this continued all in on racism is a good polling strategy or not. I guess if your plan is to cancel elections then...
Honestly, though, I'm 60/40 on something catastrophic happening.
Either A -
Trump wins fair and square - in which case, uhhh... cool. I don't see a Trump not being in the White House moving forward.
Trump loses fair and square - Trump says it was rigged and fights via the supreme court and either wins (see above) or loses.
If he loses then what's the next step? He can't stay in the US, New York wants to eat him alive, so he can go to USSR or whatever. Or does he not stand down and call on all the proud boys to stand with their real president? Do we get a major/minor civil war?
I can't see a scenario where Trump says, "I gave it a good run! But we lost! We'll try to get someone on the ballot in four more!" Mainly because he's calling Putin every week.
Does anyone have a positive outcome that I'm missing here?
