Craig Glazer: Is It Too Late For Donald Trump?
The media for the most part was in love with the Trump ride. Endless press coverage of his family, his speeches, his interviews, anything Trump for the past year. Donald made the impossible run for the presidential Republican nomination and defeated 16 other candidates, many with big names like Jeb Bush. It was the political upset of the modern era.
The world watched while his opponent, Hillary Clinton was under attack after attack with scandal after scandal. Hillary is a professional politician and America seemed to want to try something new. For a time it seemed that Trump could actually win the white house. Then reality set in a couple weeks ago. The Republican convention gave Trump his first lead in most polls since the two were clearly the nominees. He lead by as many as 4 to 6 points in many national polls. Then came the Democratic convention, it seemed troubled with Bernie Sanders followers ready to nearly riot over the newest scandal involving the DNC computer gate helping Clinton win the nomination over Bernie. In the end it all seemed to go away. To make matters worse for Trump he couldn't control his mouth and attacked anyone and everyone who bad mouthed him during the DNC Show. It all backfired on Donald.
Leaders in the nation decided Trump really could win and he was dangerous, to them, maybe to world peace, and anything else they could think of to destroy the guy. Media soon came up with what might be the best attack, "he might be mentally ill" that was a good one.
Regardless of what is true or not, Trump is now 12 points down in most polls. Its a huge number. Can he fight back? Is it over? He is still the media giant, still gets most of the attention over Clinton, but now much of it is negative.
Yes there will be debates in September and millions will watch, but barring some major news that destroy Clinton again, I'm afraid its over. Trump has just put off too many groups including women in his own party. His hill is just too steep.What looked like a tight battle is now looking like a landslide for the Clintons. People are just too afraid of Donald Trump today.
I'm sure Hillary will do a solid job as president, Trump will return to his vast business and media empires, and we had a nice 'reality' show to watch all summer long and then some. The show is now basically in re-runs. Cancelled. Shucks!
