This is what the Republican Party has devolved into; a sad collection of coward who so paralyzed with fear, so mindful of political correctness, so gutless as to not even having the wherewithal to fake an appearance of courage. It’s like their battered wives, so used to getting beaten upon by Barack Obama and the Democrats that they’ve accepted it as their lot in life.
WashingtonPost reports the hole that Donald Trump has dug for himself keeps getting deeper. On nearly every front, his position continues to deteriorate. Unless he reverses course, Republicans are heading toward a wrenching week at their convention in Cleveland next month and potentially worse in November.National polls alone provide an incomplete picture of the current state of the presidential race, but the shifts over the past few weeks should make Republicans beyond nervous. What looked like a tight contest between Trump and Hillary Clinton in late May has morphed into a Trump deficit that cannot be wished away.The RealClearPolitics poll average now gives Clinton a lead of almost six percentage points over Trump, a marked shift from a month ago. Perhaps even more telling is that every poll on the RCP list that was conducted entirely in June showed Clinton leading. That’s a change from May, when several polls showed Trump leading narrowly.
These polls in June are meaningless. It’s five months until Election Day, a billion years in politics. Yet the GOP buys it hook, line, and sinker because they only know how to view life in the PC lane. If these people think that running away from Trump is smart politically, they are in for a rude awakening down the road because the base of the Republican Party will have the final say at the ballot box.
