    https://newrepublic.com/article/137864/donald-trump-citizen-painDonald Trump’s chances of winning the presidential election are vanishingly small, and he knows it. In a desperate attempt to salvage his disastrous campaign, he has intensified his exaggerations about voter fraud and invented conspiracies about the election being “rigged”...

    ...By running a bigoted campaign, and being revealed as a sex predator, Trump has become massively unpopular. This will hurt his social standing significantly. It’s hard to imagine he’ll be treated with the same indulgence by the jet set that he has spent his life cultivating. To be sure, Trump will still have millions of fans among the Republican base, but in general they are not the sort of people Trump goes golfing with at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. Trump used to relish hobnobbing with politicians like Bill Clinton and Mitt Romney, but they, and figures of their stature, now shun him. Moreover, many of his hangers-on, who were in for the ride as long as long as it promised publicity and money, will abandon him after he loses.

    It’s not just a social loss that Trump will suffer, but also, perhaps even more sorely, a financial one. The Trump brand has been tarnished by his toxic mouth. Whereas his name was once associated with high-end (if garish) luxury items, now it’s synonymous with racism, xenophobia, and boasts about sexual assault....

    If Trump’s revenue from licensing his brand diminishes, it’ll come at a time when he’s facing mounting legal costs....

    In sum, post-election Trump is likely to become poorer and more socially isolated. Like Sarah Palin, the Republican vice presidential nominee in 2008, he might keep wading into current politics on social media, as a way to keep his name alive. But Palin’s star quickly faded after her ticket lost the election and, months later, she resigned from the governorship of Alaska. ... The media will stop paying attention to him, and it will drive Trump to despair.

    Trump has a messiah complex, so he will certainly miss those campaign rallies. It's clear that he gets off on the false adoration and rambunctiousness of his fans.
