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.

    If This Poll about #Orlando is Accurate, the Election is Over and Hillary Will Win Big
    Terrorism is the only issue on which Trump leads Hillary Clinton with the American people, so his campaign might have hoped that the Orlando attack would help stem the tide of horrible polls. It turns out, Trump’s response to Orlando rubbed almost all of America the wrong way:

    A majority of Americans surveyed in a CBS News poll out Wednesday say they disapprove of the way Donald Trump is responding to the terrorist shooting at a gay nightclub Sunday in Orlando, Florida.

    In the wake of the deadliest shooting in American history as well as the deadliest terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11, 51 percent said they did not like the way Trump has been handling the situation, compared with 25 percent who said they approve and 24 percent who said they do not know or did not give an answer.

    Mathematically, what this means is that even some portion of the small and ever-shrinking portion of the United States who has a favorable opinion of Trump does not approve of the way he has reacted to the Orlando shooting. That is bad. What is worse is that America approves of the way Clinton and Obama have responded to Orlando.

    Battleground boss: Clinton leads Trump across swing-state map
    Clinton has the edge in the states that matter most, according to POLITICO’s inaugural Battleground States polling average.
    Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump in the 11 pivotal states likely to determine the outcome of this year’s presidential election, according to the debut of POLITICO’s Battleground States polling average.

    As the 2016 general election begins, Clinton holds a 5-point overall advantage in the POLITICO Battleground States polling average over Trump, 44.8 percent to 39.8 percent. That lead extends to the state level: Clinton has the advantage in eight of the 11 individual swing states.

    The debut of the Battleground States polling average sets a baseline for the race to 270 electoral votes, focusing only on the 11 states most likely to determine the outcome in November — Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. The basics of the average are straightforward: it’s based on the most recent public polls from each of the 11 states and weighted by each state’s representation in the Electoral College.

    At the moment, the POLITICO polling average across the competitive battleground states is only marginally closer than the national polling average across all 50 states: The RealClearPolitics average gives Clinton a 44.1 percent to 38.6 percent advantage.

    Donald Trump joins Democrats in post-Orlando gun control push
    Brushing aside warnings that they’ll tip off terrorists to secret investigations, Democrats pressed ahead Wednesday with plans for new gun controls after the Orlando shooting, and even enlisted an unlikely potential ally — Donald Trump, who said he’s open to a discussion about banning firearm sales to those on the government’s no-fly list.
    [..]
    Democrats have revived their legislation to use terrorist watch lists to vet would-be gun buyers, implying Omar Mateen, the Orlando shooter, could have been kept from buying the firearms he used in his rampage.

    And Mr. Trump, Republicans’ likely presidential nominee, posted a Twitter message saying he would meet with the National Rifle Association to talk with them about the issue.

    “I’m going to be looking at it very, very seriously,” Mr. Trump said in an interview that aired Wednesday evening on Fox News Channel. “The terror watch list and the no-fly list — I’m going to be talking to the NRA about that and starting a real dialogue.”

    But Republicans, who have said the lists are riddled with errors, got backup Wednesday after they re-released comments from FBI Director James B. Comey, who told Congress last year that denying guns based on the secret lists could “blow” terrorism investigations.

    Mr. Comey, testifying to the Senate Appropriations Committee in 2015, said right now his agents are flagged if someone on a watchlist buys a gun.

    “It’s a little bit challenging for us because ‘known’ or ‘suspected’ means it hasn’t been adjudicated in every case that somebody is a terrorist,” Mr. Comey told Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat and the chief sponsor of the watch-list gun control proposal. “It’s somebody we’re investigating, so we don’t want to, obviously, blow our investigation. Sorry.”

    Donald Trump Just Caved on Gun Control

    Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump
    I will be meeting with the NRA, who has endorsed me, about not allowing people on the terrorist watch list, or the no fly list, to buy guns.
    9:50 AM – 15 Jun 2016

    Wow. Up until 2012, Trump supported the assault weapons ban. He only became “pro-second amendment” when he began thinking about running for President. This year he got the NRA endorsement and he just threw them under the bus.

    Banning people on the terror watch list and no fly list are terrible ideas because the second amendment is a fundamental right. The Republicans proposed a plan last year killed by Democrats that would trigger a probable cause hearing if someone was flagged, but never endorsed an outright prohibition on American citizens owning guns when it could be a government screw up.

    This is a terrible idea and a flat out cave by Donald Trump. You cannot deny constitutional rights to American citizens because the government is suspicious of you. The IRS has tried with tea party groups. The Department of Homeland Security has labeled returning veterans and conservatives as suspicious. If we did what Donald Trump wants, we could all find ourselves on a watch list to deny us our second amendment rights.

    Limbaugh: Trump supporters ‘getting nervous’
    Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh, who has largely been sympathetic to Donald Trump’s uncanny campaign, said Thursday that many of the Republican nominee’s supporters are showing signs of losing confidence in the candidate.

    “People are getting nervous out there,” said Limbaugh, referring to a recent national poll that showed Trump had fallen below his rival, Hillary Clinton, by 11 points.

    “They’re worried about it,” he said. “They’re worried about the 11 points. They’re worried about the fact that only 25 percent agree with what Trump said [after the Orlando shooting] … The point is that there are people getting nervous out there and it’s really the first time.”

    Trump has suffered a series of missteps in recent weeks, nearly all of which were the result of controversial comments, such as when he questioned whether he could get a fair trial from a Mexican or Muslim judge in light of his plans to curb immigration.

    Democratic congresswoman has an interesting theory about Trump’s relationship with the Clintons
    You hear this theory floated jokingly by conservative #NeverTrumpers now and again, but no one really believes it. (I think. I hope.) And when you do hear it, it’s more of an “If Trump were trying to lose to the Clintons, what would he be doing differently right now?” rhetorical point, not a semi-serious accusation.

    Dem Rep. Marcy Kaptur appears to be semi-serious. And the funny thing is, she seems to mean this as much as a criticism of the Clintons than of Trump.

    Some conservative Republicans disgusted by Donald Trump’s offensive, scorched-earth campaign have long suspected their party’s nominee to be secretly in league with his erstwhile friends Bill and Hillary Clinton. They wonder whether Bill Clinton and Trump worked out an agreement – perhaps during the course of that “casual” phone call between the two last May – designed to hand Hillary Clinton the White House while tarnishing the GOP’s brand for a generation…

    “There are some theories on the Internet that this is Bill Clinton’s best political deal,” says Marcy Kaptur, the veteran Democratic congresswoman from Ohio and the House’s longest-serving female lawmaker, “that he and Donald are buddies, and they have a lot of similar friends in New York, and he has masterfully selected a friend who maybe by October will say, ‘You know, this is very boring. And I’m going to get out.’”

    “Do I believe it 100 percent, do I believe it 2 percent? You know, you really wonder,” Kaptur says.

    Suggesting that your party’s nominee might’ve made a backroom deal with the devil isn’t part of the normal course of business for a run-of-the-mill Democratic lawmaker. But Kaptur has tussled with the Clintons before.

    The Self-Immolation of the Republican Party
    Column: How the GOP lit itself on fire
    The Darwin Awards is a popular website that “commemorates individuals who protect our gene pool by making the ultimate sacrifice of their own lives. Darwin Award winners eliminate themselves in an extraordinarily idiotic manner, thereby improving our species’ chances of long-term survival.” I’d like to nominate a certain political party for one. It should win hands down.

    The competition is tough. “All human races, cultures, and socioeconomic groups are eligible,” according to the contest rules. Though these rules do not specifically mention political institutions, the Republican Party, founded in 1854, meets the criteria for entry. No doubt about it.

    Its story is true—as much a part of our reality as the sky and the stars. The voters that make up the party are, as the rules stipulate, “capable of sound judgment.” By supporting the least qualified, least knowledgeable, most unsuited major-party nominee for president in history, they are engaged in an “astounding misapplication of judgment.” Every week that Donald Trump remains the Republican nominee, the party comes closer to removing itself from the presidential gene pool. Self-selection is at work here. Trump’s supporters are choosing their party’s demise.

    Want proof? Alan Abramowitz, a political scientist at Emory University, built a model that has correctly predicted presidential elections since 1992. The model says the GOP is set to win the presidency this year, 51 percent to 49 percent. But Abramowitz says to ignore his findings, not because they are wrong but because they describe an election that is not actually taking place. “The model is based on the assumption that the parties are going to nominate mainstream candidates who will be able to unite the party, and that the outcome will be similar to a generic vote, a generic presidential vote for a generic Democratic versus a generic Republican.”

    Translation: If Republican voters had nominated a typical candidate, a governor or former governor who had won office in a big state by straddling the center and the right, that man would be ahead of Hillary Clinton right now. But instead the voters went for Trump, who has never run for nor held office, dodged the draft, and spent the last year insulting Mexicans, P.O.W.s, women, the disabled, Muslims, you name it, while saying George W. Bush lied us into war with Iraq and implying Ted Cruz’s dad had a hand in the Kennedy assassination. Then there was the part where he bragged about his genitals before ranting that he would order soldiers to commit war crimes and “If I say do it, they’re going to do it.” This week he cast the troops in Iraq as thieves, threw his support behind an unconstitutional proposal to deny Second Amendment rights to citizens on the no fly list, invited Kim Jong Un to Washington, hinted that President Obama supported ISIS, denied press credentials to the Washington Post after the paper reported this insinuation, and then turned around and tweeted that a Breitbart.com article proved he was right about Obama all along.

    This is not a good man. This is not a stable man. It is in the self-interest of no rational person to have him near the situation room. So it does not come as a surprise to see support for Donald Trump collapsing in the Real Clear Politics poll average. Hillary Clinton now leads him by about six points. His unfavorable rating in the ABC News / Washington Post poll is up to 70 percent, a record high. The election isn’t until November 8. Where will Trump’s unfavorable rating be then? 85 percent? 90? He’ll make the record books all right—as the most reviled nominee in U.S. history.

    So all that’s all gone now…anything positive about the GOP nominee is gone, and all you have to offer are slams and slurs and these truly bizarre “He tweeted it, therefore that is indicative of his most deeply held beliefs, his innermost SOUL, and any future deviation from the tweet will be seized upon!…SEE! SEE! HE’S A LIAR!! HE’S A HYPOCRITE!” hysterical bleatings.

    Since Sen. Sessions endorsed Trump, do you now reject him, too? SHOULD he now be tarred and feathered for endorsing this guy for whom you harbor such venom? Does Sen Sessions now lose – in your book – his Conservative bona fides?

    GOP Saying “No” To Gun Grabbing Ideas Pitched By Their Own Nominee | RedState http://www.redstate.com/joesquire/2016/06/17/gop-saying-gun-grabbing-ideas-pitched-nominee/

    Despite Trump’s calls for action, Senate gun debate headed down familiar path
    An effort to pass new gun-control legislation in the wake of a deadly mass shooting in Orlando is poised to end in a familiar impasse in the coming days — and potentially pit Republican lawmakers against their presumed presidential nominee, Donald Trump, who called for congressional action.

    The long-contentious issue quickly gripped Capitol Hill anew this week after a shooter killed 49 people at a nightclub early Sunday in Orlando. The 29-year-old assailant had been on the FBI’s terrorist watch list, but he was removed in 2014 because of a lack of evidence that he would commit an immediate crime.

    Trump said this week that lawmakers should find a way to bar terrorism suspects from obtaining guns and that he planned to meet with the nation’s top gun lobby to build support. At the same time, some Republicans and Democrats jumped at the chance to renew their efforts to reach compromise. But the effort didn’t go far.

    Gun rights advocates in Congress quickly made clear that they were unlikely to be swayed by Trump’s decision to jump into the debate.

    “Anybody but Trump”: RNC Delegates seek to stop Trump at the Convention
    It’s one thing when Erick Erickson or Hugh Hewitt ask the Republican National Committee delegates to find some way of saving the party by stopping Donald Trump from getting its nomination.

    It’s another when the Republican National Committee delegates themselves start engineering a way to nominate “Anybody but Trump.” And that’s what’s happening.
    The Washington Post has talked to delegates who are part of a group of “dozens” who are looking to save the party by stopping Trump.

    “This literally is an ‘Anybody but Trump’ movement,” said Kendal Unruh, a Republican delegate from Colorado who is leading the campaign. “Nobody has any idea who is going to step in and be the nominee, but we’re not worried about that. We’re just doing that job to make sure that he’s not the face of our party.”

    The fresh wave of anti-Trump organizing comes as a growing number of Republicans have signaled that they will not support Trump for president. In addition, House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.), who is slated to chair the Republican National Convention next month in Cleveland, said in remarks released Friday that House Republicans should “follow their conscience” on whether to support Trump.

    This fresh wave also comes as Donald Trump is plummeting in the polls, crashing against Hillary Clinton in a few weeks. On May 27, when he first made his “Mexican judge” comments, it was a one point race. Before he opened his mouth and made comments widely perceived as being openly racist, Clinton was only ahead 43.8-42.8. Since then, that’s become a five point lead. It’s that bad, and the party can see it:

    So you base your oh-so-confident avowal that there’s no way, no how, absolutely ain’t-gonna-happen, no chance Trump will be elected …on polling?

    Polling that from what I saw, was not of likely voters, or even registered voters, but “1000 adults”. So there’s your “specific problem” with that one, much less the fact that these are polls taken a month before the convention, and FIVE months before the general.

    You’re absolutely certain that nothing will happen between now and November that could possibly change these numbers…is that what you’re saying?
    Wikileaks releases damning Clinton emails, Clinton gets indicted, Who knows? …Clinton’s medical records reveal her to be unfit…
    You don’t know, but you’re arrogantly, gleefully SURE that TRUMP CAN’T WIN!!

    You seem very emotionally invested, not in electing the best choice for POTUS, but in insuring that THAT GODDAM TRUMP DOESN’T WIN!

    Forget doing what, you know, rational people do before voting, which is:
    Which candidate, OF THE TWO, will be better for America? Which one will strengthen America, and which one will weaken, divide, and degrade us?

    Instead of principled thinking, your whole schtick just reeks of resentment that Cruz lost, and anger at Trump for defeating him.

  • Tom

    Really? Trump’s supporters are the ones “…handing the victory to Comrade Clinton…”, while you folks who spend every waking moment feverishly striving to bring Trump DOWN…you’re doing what, exactly, if it’s not campaigning for Hillary?

    Too late for “principled resistance”…your guy lost.

    It’s down to Trump or Hillary…Now, apparently you want to align yourself with the flag-burning brutes rioting in the streets – Hell, you hate Trump just as much as any Mexican illegal, right? Maybe even more so! You’re on the same page with all the hateful shrieking and “protesting” anti-Trump thugs, after all, right? They’re taking the words right outta your mouth!!
    If you want to align yourself with despicable folks such as BLM, or La Raza, or Bill Ayers – all united in their hatred of Trump, just like you!…you’ll fit right in!

    But don’t try to give us this bullshit about “I’m not helping Hillary…YOU are!”

    Torcer, I am not a “Trumper.” I didn’t vote for the guy in my state’s primary, needless to say my guy didn’t win.

    What I am is a realist, I don’t like the dud, er DUDE but realize he is the presumptive Republican candidate. I’m sorry you can’t seem to wrap your mind around that truth, but God help us the only alternative I see to Trump in the White House is that female Attila the Hun the Democraps are sending up.

    As things stand now we only stand a small chance of stopping her, but if you turkeys manage to torpedo Trump and p!ss off his supporters you stand ZERO chance of stopping Hitlery from moving into the White House.

    Oh,sure,when i want to know how the campaign is going,I always look to polls commissioned by liberals.Absolutely moronic to think a poll by a liberal this far from the election means anything,but it’s a nice fundraiser in case the Saudi’s quit funding Hillary.

    It really just demonstrates the ignorance and stupidity of voters that’s all.

  • Tom

    So torcer now has a minion? That’s nice…
    What you’re saying is that, even before either party has had their convention, months before the election, that it’s all over…Trump cannot win, so that’s that!
    Right? That’s what you and others are confidently asserting…that, owing to polls, there is NO way he can win, and that anyone who supports Trump is a…well, pick your obscenity because I’ve had a lot of them thrown my way because I think Hillary in the WH would be a disaster for America.
    You’re apparently another one of those short-sighted and sulkish folks who are more concerned with your butt-hurt over Trump whipping poor little Ted Cruz than you are with selecting the best candidate OF THE REMAINING TWO. If you’re not a resentful Cruzer, my apologies, but you’re sure acting like one.

    You’re acting like a jealous and bitter high schooler, angry that his buddy didn’t get selected as a nominee for prom king. You lash out at the vast majority who selected Donald over Ted….

    “Can’t you see what a dreamboat Ted is? And how smart? His scolding, nasally voice (sigh!) just SENDS me! How COULD you? How could you pick Donald over Ted? That old poopy-head Donald has been (sniff) SO MEAN to so many people…there’s no way he can win! And he’s such a (sob!) LIAR! YOU’RE NOT MY FRIEND ANY MORE!!…I HATE YOU! I HATE YOU! I HATE YOU!”

    I use to come here a lot, not so much now-a-days.The place has become deranged. A lot of the topics were on target, a few stretched it a bit but this anti Trump, Pro Hillary stuff is just to much. (It’s all pro Hillary if you are assassinating the Republican nominee)

  • Torcer

    Can you actually cite those problems?
    If you cannot my point still holds.

  • Torcer

    Perhaps if you had spent more time researching the massive problems with Trump we wouldn’t be in this predicament.

    Again, it’s YOUR refusal to see reality here that will hand the victory to the left.

    Why don’t you spend some time researching the issues instead of wasting it spewing all manner of spurious accusations.

  • Torcer

    1. Trump isn’t the nominee yet.
    2. He was crowned with the presumptive nominee moniker months before he actually earned it.
    3. We are sure to lose with Trump while destroying conservatism at the same time.
    4. I’d rather see a better candidate in the race that at least the people can rally around and not cause a massive down ballot apocalypse.

  • Tom

    Guess what, Teddy-Boy? I’m better educated and more well-read that you could ever hope to be, but you see, I’m not crippled by my blind allegiance to A FAILED CANDIDATE.

    You seem life-consumingly obsessed with, and pissed at Trump because you seem to think that, IF ONLY Teddy had been the GOP nominee, that his snotty, condescending, hectoring tone and his lack of any real accomplishments would be just ballot-box GOLD, that if only Lyin’ Ted had been the nominee, that old Hillary would be quaking in her boots, and a GOP victory would be all but assured.

    This demonstrates a definite disassociation from reality, the reality that a 1st-term Senator with no real accomplishments, who has been latched onto that taxpayer teat his entire adult life, who wasn’t even born in this country for God’s sake, would NOT be elected. You can’t seem to come to grips with this, but continue to fantasize about Ted To The Rescue!

    The point, ass breath, is that Hillary got more votes in her primary races than tRump did in his. If all GOP voters who are not Trumpanzees and all Democrat voters who were Bern-outs stay home in Nov., your boy loses.

    Your pea brain cannot comprehend this, but perhaps some others will. tRump is, at best a plurality candidate, not a majority candidate. Majority candidates are what win general elections.

    In Nov., you will lose and America will lose. The election of Hillary Clinton is on you pricks and I will here to remind you of it, every single day.

    Now, man up or shut up, chicken shit.

    “Researching the issues”… Again, what is it that makes you so self-aggrandizing that you can’t seem to get it through your head that I have “researched the issues”? You folks are sure full of yourselves, aren’t you? You’re just so SURE that the only reason anyone could support Trump is because they are either a.)Evil, or b.) ignorant.
    You supported a LOSER…a LOSER…get over it, and your very puffed-up opinion of your “research capabilities”.

    How’s your “SEER” training going?

    I know, I know, it’s a tough 4-letter acronym, but somebody with your vast experience in military matters should know how to spell it…the letters portray, in order, what you are being trained to do…

    If you had a clue, you would know that just attending the course requires Secret Clearance, so I couldn’t tell you much about it anyway. I will tell you it was C Level, not that you will ever know what that means given you don’t even understand the acronym, LOL.

    Too bad you can’t go, with your criminal history you could never get the clearance required. I’d love to watch you ride the tilt table, listening to your gurgling screams would be most satisfying.

    Here’s you, from earlier…

    “Spoken like a true Trumpanzee fucktard.
    Hey, I hear that IDPA course of fire is rough. How did YOU do?”

    As you so helpfully pointed out, the acronym is not spelled SEER, as you seem to think, but SERE.

    See, it’s kind of what you try to do – in order – if you’re shot down, or in enemy territory…First you have to SURVIVE…if you survive but the enemy is looking for you, then you use EVASION to elude capture…with me so far? Probably not, but I’ll go on anyway. So you have Survived and tried to Evade the enemy, but if your capture is imminent, that’s when you would use RESISTANCE, see, to try NOT to get captured. But if you ARE captured, that’s when you would try to ESCAPE.

    S-E-R-E, not S-E-E-R. You’re going to escape, apparently before you are captured? And then go back to captivity to resist?

    I know it’s complex…4 whole steps! And in order!…but do try to keep up.
