Most people who are well informed (including traditional Republicans) think that Republicans did not do as well as expected in the 2022 election because they nominated a lot of crazy, extremist candidates. Even some Republicans are now calling for Trump to step aside.

My guess, though, is that what Trump is thinking is that the reason many Republicans lost is that he himself was not on the ticket. My prediction: The midterm election results are not going to stop Trump from running.
