Trump has a core of diehard voters(30%) who will stick with him regardless. But he also has a shell of bandwagoners who can easily be scared off via attacks. During the new Hampshire debates, Trump fell down to his core supporters after he was roundly criticized. That's not a big effect, but it's not useless either.
Not particularly. But trying to come to terms with likely outcomes. I do feel pretty confident that he'll be worse on domestic issues. He'll make loud, angry noises, and maybe bomb a few countries with crappy militaries, but...that's not actually that strange. Par for the course, really, past the bluster.
The President's power on the domestic scene is much more limited than foreign affairs though, especially if Congress and the Senate don't want to work with him. If they're able to pass veto-proof legislation and nobody is willing to advance his policy ideas as legislation, they can basically cut him out of the process entirely.
