For the ex-president’s potential successors in the party, however, there was a glimmer of opportunity on Sunday. Trump’s speech was lacklustre by his standards. His self-imposed exile may have taken a toll – leaving him grasping for lines that work in the Joe Biden era.

It’s a daunting advantage, but perhaps not prohibitive.
