If those reputable publications can convince the electorate to drop Trump, then yes, he’s finished. But it wouldn’t surprise me if he still won. The Force is strong with this one.
For the record, I’m a Trump supporter but not for the reasons you may think. I’m a Canadian, so the American Presidential election doesn’t really concern me.
However, it would be a real hoot to have a Clown in the White House. It would provide for years of high political entertainment. (I’m afraid that George W was not enough of a Clown for my taste.)
Also, the American government is corrupt to the core. It has long been coopted by money, by special interest groups and lobbyists, by corporate power. American politicians have been bought and paid for. No one can be trusted.
There needs to be a massive political cleansing. Clinton is definitely not the answer, so everyone is pinning their hopes on Trump to shake things up. It remains to be seen whether he will do it, or whether he will yield to the political corruption.
