10. I do not rule out an intervention

Romney, Ryan, McConnell, McCain et al gather to confront the living and breathing death of their party. Sort of a Goldwater shows Nixon the handwriting on the wall in '73 moment. Trump would have to be bought out of course, but I'm sure he could walk away if the "deal" was right.

20. I say "Food Fight!"

PIxture this. Put them all in the ring: Ryan, Romney, Jeb, Cruz, Carson, Rubio, Fiorina, Kasich, Walker, and of course Pence. It would be brutal. No one would just want to let this newfound prize go to someone else without a fight. Meanwhile, Hillary-Kaine would carry on their campaign like sane people, in marked contrast to the dysfunctional GOP antics.

3. Very interesting

 

comparables,notice how CBS in a outliar. Is this Viacoms's way of Trump ass kissing? There again,it is all about the sampling and the Q&A of that sample. It these trends increase to the down side for Trump this early,look for the Media to try and create a Horse Race. Heard it mentioned this morning on MSNBC with Alex Witt and she will say what ever management tells her.

26. If this continues for a week or two, they will change the horse race narrative

To the congressional races and Trump will be a pathetic footnote and sideshow.

27. Got a hunch Sundays Pundit Shows and their so called

 

expert guests will point the direction and narrative. Remember,there are millions in Ad revenues at stake and the bean counters run these so called Independent News Organizations.

If all of sudden we see tons of Rethug Congresspersons and Senators popping up as so called guests,then we probably will see a new contrived Horse Race for control of the Senate and House. And that will really be some sideshow.

4. Every Stupid Thing He Says

Costs him a few hundred or thousand more, and almost nothing will bring them back once they abandon him.

I am also convinced, but cannot prove, that close to 10% of those who poll for him won't be able to actually vote for him.

Of the faithful are not voting for Trump.

Morning Joe S, of all people, has connected the dots quite well on this subject.

8. That shows "momentum"

I wonder how much further the red line will plunge? The Russian mess he's stepped into might just coax it downward a couple more notches.

13. Trump's support is now within the error margins of being in "the noise".

First time I've ever seen this in a major party candidate. Wow! Now, this is impressive Mr. Trumpster. :hahaha:

15. His ego has

created a situation in which he cannot escape without being a loser. His implosion will be dramatic and maybe kind of gross to watch.

16. HOWEVER - That's just one data point, and from a pollster I'm not familiar with (RABA)


I'm not getting too giggly just yet, though I have to believe tRump is hurting himself mightily with every word he utters.

18. Yeah, if RABA's numbers are confirmed by other pollsters who have a touch more of a track record...

 

then it would show true movement.

It's just such an outlier to any other polls I've seen - time will tell I guess.

Polls Plus has it 60.4%/39.6% for Hillary. Those are number that make me a little more comfortable.
