Wheels Are Coming Off Trump Campaign Already

The bad news is that radicalized Democrats will soon have even more leverage to inflict their maleficent agenda, because the Trump campaign is falling to pieces, as some of us have been predicting for months.

Donald Trump’s campaign for the White House is teetering amid dismal poll numbers, racially tinged controversies and a rising chorus of criticism from within the GOP. …

Some Republican donors are staying on the sidelines, which could give Clinton a tremendous edge in resources.

A Bloomberg poll released Tuesday gave Clinton a 12-point lead over Trump among likely voters nationwide. An astounding 55 percent of those polled said they could never vote for Trump.

A Washington Post/ABC News survey this week found that 7 in 10 Americans have an unfavorable view of the real estate mogul.

No way is this guy going to be elected President, even against a candidate as awful as Shrillary.

“At the general election stage, you need the state level or the local level [party officials] to help out with turnout. If you don’t have people rowing in your boat in states that matter, then you are going to run into a problem,” said Grant Reeher, a professor of political science at Syracuse University.

On Wednesday, Trump told a crowd of supporters in Atlanta that Republican leaders needed to “be quiet.” The billionaire added that he might need “to do it alone.”

But on his own he has no organization, no know-how, no competence, and nowhere near enough money.

Meanwhile, Republican critics of Trump are already focusing on shoring up the GOP’s majority in the House and the Senate — a startling decision at this stage in an election cycle, because it suggests resignation to losing another White House race.

Hanging on to the House and Senate won’t be easy with Trump at the top of the ticket. As Republican strategist Rick Wilson observes,

“This is unlike an ordinary campaign where you focus on the top of the ticket. This year, instead of good things rolling down the hill, it’s like these candidates are at the bottom of a chute in a butcher’s shop.

“They’re going to be covered in gore. It’s horrifying.”

The good news is that Trump’s inevitable collapse is occurring prior to the Republican convention. There is still time to avert disaster, provided there is courage. Party rules are not a suicide pact. If the rules mean you die, change them as necessary so that you do not die. Trump must be stopped at the convention to prevent his farcical publicity stunt of a campaign from inflicting devastating damage on the Republican Party and the country as a whole.

Already starting to choke.
