However, we know that they are not part of the priesthood and do not have the Church's remedy for possession, the rite of exorcism.  In the end, I'm sure the demons continue their possession even if they are only fought down for a short period of time.

It's also worth considering the fact that demons are, of course, tricksters and liars.  They may pretend to be thwarted by a Protestant so as to steal souls away from the Church and to keep them in heresy.

Perfectly stated. 

Yes it is. Though Jesus did say "a house divided against itself cannot stand" and ¨How can Satan cast out Satan", I think this is a very viable explanation as to why protestant "exorcisms" seem to work on the surface, in this case by "appeasing" itself on purpose and making it look like it is expelled. This is where I part ways with fr. Malachi Martin, since he said in one of his interviews that even witch doctors could expel demons; I can't remember which interview was it, I think it was on one of those Art Bell shows.
