Donald Trump is falling like a rock in the polls. If it’s a freefall, you can bet your bottom dollar there will be a wide open, free-wheeling, brokered convention. Rather than a coronation.
One poll already has Trump falling 12 points behind Mrs. Bill Clinton. Is this just temporary slippage? Or something far worse? Could it be the end for Trump’s candidacy?
One thing is for certain. Trump can’t sustain another descent this precipitous in the next couple weeks. He’d better rally and rally quick, or the Democrats will be the least of his worries. He may be unceremoniously dumped at the convention.
Republicans would be well within reason to pull the plug on a flagging, faltering nominee who shows no hope of winning in November.
If that is the case, Republicans will have another chance to get it right — seeing the light on the most qualified candidate since 1984: Sen. Ted Cruz.
Trump’s fundraising is also cause for serious concern, as reported by these headlines in the past few days:
