Are Repugs Starting To Rally Around Trump....

now that he has new blood leading his campaign?

Where are Hillary and the Dems. All I hear is all Trump all the time on the news channels. All I see is Trump surrogates and talking heads.

Whats going on? Are the Dems and Hillary getting complacent here?

Are we going to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory?

1. They really never left. His words match their thoughts. Any defections were just for show.

 

Hillary's campaign knows exactly what they are doing. Still a very long time to November. Hit and then back off. When trumpster thinks things are better, hit him again, but a little harder. After Labor Day those attacks will intensify. After the first of October, the attacks will be brutal. So brutal that Trump might only make the first debate.

6. I think the question refers to Republican leadership...

Answer: no. Most of them think he's going to crash and burn, and will take the Party with him.

2. the media continues to give trump seriously disproportionate airtime.

the only thing that's changed is that it hasn't been as positive as it was prior to the convention.

but they're still covering trump far more than they're covering hillary.

3. Are they getting more confident?

 

Yes, I notice an increase in FB posts from the RW whack nuts.

They never left him. He last few days have been focused on trying to solidify their support. the "I am not a racist, therefore those who are vote for me aren't racists" crowd. Those people weren't voting for Hillary.

The small portion of sane Republicans aren't going back, and the remaining 28% of Bernie supporters weren't ever going to support him.

4. Don't panic. When your enemy is destroying itself there's no need to help.

I don't see complacency, but observation and preparation for what lies ahead. Could you imagine if Hillary's campaign tried to speak out about every little thing Trump and his surrogates say or do? They wouldn't have time for anything else.

The debates are coming and Trump is a different kind of animal. A lot of preparation is going into that right now and I have no doubt Hillary will be well prepared for his idiocy. Bernie will be campaigning for Hillary this week, something I'm excited about.

We're going to win - and let Trump ruin himself and the GOP in the process.

7. You Mention Bernie....

Bernie - in my opinion - held up pretty well in the primary debates. If he would have been our nominee - he would have had to face Trump in the presidential debates. I wonder if he would be available to the Hillary campaign to perhaps give them some pointers as to how he would have taken on Trump and if that would be of help to Hillary?

8. I hope he's been available.

If he's going to campaign for Hillary, I think he's probably got a direct line of communication to her people. I know he'll go after Trump and his lies when he gets out there.
