I think the tape's just giving all these establishment hacks an easy exit ramp in preparation for their 2016 machinations. Everyone's looking out for their own skin because they frankly have no clue what's going to happen on election day. Some early polling data show that the so-called "lewd" tape hasn't blinkered Trump's core support. There may be some independents turned off, but if you thought all these modern leftist women were going for Trump, I've got a bridge I can sell you.
From Ed Driscoll, at Instapundit, "QUESTION ASKED: “So why is that tape — which to me just sounds like Trump being Trump — the straw that broke the camel’s back?”"
A Richochet piece is linked there, but Ed adds:
Why was Mitt Romney’s perfectly defensible 47 percent comment the straw that broke his campaign? Because the media coordinated its distribution as part of a massive simultaneous carpet bombing...RTWT.
