8. I didn't say "step down." I meant step out of the election.

Resigning as President would be a blow to the ego.

He won't resign unless he wants to do a "squeeze play" where Pence becomes president for a few weeks -- just long enough to pardon Trump.

He's not a total narcissist, or total solipsist, or even total psycho. He's all of these things in flux.

Ultimately, he is a survivor. In the face of failure, he'll drop his various megalomanias if he can live to grift and graft another day.
