People only tend to care about a candidate's demeanor when they don't like said candidate. Otherwise, it's just a "distraction." And I really don't think most partisan voters are interested in conceding one election to do better in the next. There were Democrats saying that it was a good thing that 2014 was so bad for Democrats, since it meant 2016 had to be better for them. And then every two years since then, at least someone has talked about conceding the current election in order to do better in the next cycle. It's not a good strategy.

And Republicans shouldn't assume that a Democratic President means a Republican wave in 2022 similar to 2010. Sure, it might happen, but it could end up only being a somewhat good year for Republicans. Either way, the 2022 Senate map isn't exactly great for Republicans, since the best they could hope for would be R+1 or maybe R+2, so if Democrats have the Senate, it's not even a given that they can take it back that year. While Democrats could take the Senate in 2022 with Trump as President, it's not going to be a slam dunk if they only have 46-47 seats, instead of 48-49.
