TKC MUST READ!!! KANSAS CITY SCRIBE CLAIMS TRUMP ALREADY FADING!!!
Take a look at this inspired political analysis from our pal Craig and his latest estimation of the most controversial Presidential candidate the nation has seen in years who is now plummeting in the polls.
Craig Glazer: Is The Trump Show Coming To An End?
Last time there was a terrorist attack in Paris, Trump came on the scene and Americans seemed to respond to his message: "We have to get tough! Obama and Hillary Clinton are just not going to stop Isis. I will!" was Donald's outcry. His numbers in many polls then topped Clintons for president. That has changed. Not today. In fact in the Bloomberg poll Hillary Clinton now has a large 12 percent lead over Trump.
Why the drop off? Name brand Republican leaders like John Kasich and Paul Ryan are just coming unglued by Donald Trumps continued personal attacks on everyone in sight from a federal judge he referred to as a Mexican, he was born in the United States and his continued desire to stop 'any' Muslim from entering the country until we figure out whats going on out there with the new violence like Orlando,Florida.
More important both President Barak Obama and Hillary Clinton have 'calmly' waged attacks against Trump framing him as a man who just doesn't get it, doesn't really have a plan on much of anything that is real and matters, he just shoots from the hip with the same old 'hollow' rhetoric: "I'll make America Great. Trust me. It will be amazing." "Build a wall." "I'll fix everything." "Clinton and Obama are destroying our country." "We can't have four more years of Obama."
The problem is President Obama's approval rating is over 50% and Trump's isn't. Now that we have these terrible new mass murders, Obama has calmly and clearly explained what his administration has done and is doing. "We have killed thousands of terrorists. Many of these acts are committed by American born citizens not immigrants. Building walls and hating on one specific religion or people is not the way to end the violence. It's not American." There has been talk about when our country put many Japanese into concentration camps in World War Two. We even turned away large groups of European Jews trying to escape the Nazi's on ships in the same war, most were captured and killed later by the Nazis. Yes we have done some terrible things in the past. Is Trump sounding like a Joe McCarthy?
My take is Donald Trump is a showman, not a racist. His family, friends and employees have made that clear based on his years of being basically kind to all around him and the thousands he has employed. Everyone was waiting for Trump to become more 'Presidential' a man we could see handle these tough issues and events. Those that were on the fence are starting to turn away from Trump and go to Hillary Clinton. Furthermore its clear Bernie Sanders will team up with Hillary and send his votes there as best he can. New Independent Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson polls 9% of the vote today. Most of them Republicans.
In the end the election could just become a 'reality show' round of highly watched debates with Clinton nearly unbeatable, but vulnerable to being attacked by Trump.
It just doesn't seem Donald Trump can change his style enough to gain independents , Latinos or African American votes needed to stop the bleeding. What was once funny, telling and eye brow raising comments by Trump are now showing his lack of knowledge and education on 'how to be a president.' Now that it counts America for the most part is coming back to the fold of wanting a president to lead the free world who is experienced, grounded, well informed on issues and seems to have somewhat of a plan: Hillary Clinton. Also someone along with Bill Clinton they are familiar with and remember the good years. Trump is a 'wild card' and now America is becoming a bit scared of him. It's just all starting to work against Donald.
