In the public's eyes, Trump is the only national leader. The only question is whether he gets the top job.
I have called this race a referendum on Trump all along. It's his race to lose. He may. I doubt it.
The press may at last be catching on. Matt Bai filed a column, "Like everything else, the debates are all about Trump."
Matt Bai sees that as a problem for Trump. Yes, just like John Elway having the ball in the final two minutes of a game at Mile High.
From Matt Bai:
Rather than play along with Trump’s “Dancing With the Stars” kind of campaign, Clinton has largely receded to the shadows offstage, content to watch while Trump gyrates and boogies himself into all kind of grotesque poses, alternately amusing and reviling much of the viewing audience.
And so, improbably, the election is now a referendum on him. Clinton’s support is probably inelastic at this point; assuming she slogs cautiously through the debates in her admirable if uninspiring way, she can do little to change the minds of those who already know how they feel about her, which is pretty much everyone.
Whether that’s enough to deliver her the White House is almost entirely a question of whether Trump can yet persuade some segment of disenchanted, moderate voters that he meets the very lowest threshold for a plausible president — someone who won’t destroy the world, at a minimum, and who might not embarrass them every day of the week for the next four years if they get really lucky.It's an interesting rant that shows just how childish and unimaginative pundits in Washington are. Trump will lead to a nuclear war.
Where have I heard that before?
Oh yes, they said that about Reagan 36 years ago.
My new book, "Trump the Press," is a fun read that details how the experts missed the rise of Trump. Remember how they said Trump was just running to help Hillary? Read the reviews in the right column.
