So, I'm extremely skeptical of Donald Trump's chances right now and I'm almost given over to throwing in the towel. This morning I was just making light of all the polls on Twitter, engaging Louise Mensch, who's now trying to get me to retract my support for the Manhattan mogul. (And see, from earlier, "Donald Trump '24-Hours of Disaster' Screencap.")
But I'm not there yet.
Meanwhile, here's Amy Walter, at the Cook Political Report, "The 2016 Race Is Not Over."
Walter's a leftist, but she's an empirical numbers lady. I've always thought she was pretty fair overall. She apparently loathes Trump (if her Twitter feed is any evidence), but she's not ready to join the collective beat down announcing the Trump implosion.
Why it's too early to predict epic collapse for Trump— amy walter (@amyewalter) August 3, 2016
1) lots of unknowns, terrorism, wiki leaks to CGF to change focus from Trump to HRC
3 reasons this race isn’t over: 1) unknown events; 2) 2 deeply disliked candidates; 3) voters not as plugged in as u https://t.co/IUgYQ8QaUd— amy walter (@amyewalter) August 3, 2016
I have zero time/sympathy for Trump enablers who are 'shocked' & dismayed by his lack of discipline. Should come as NO surprise— amy walter (@amyewalter) August 4, 2016
I'll have more, as always.
