But a funny thing is happening and no one knows what it means since this is an election unlike all others before it. Hillary is drawing very slim crowds, there is no passion or excitement among her supporters and the "bump" came at exactly the same time as a major pollster, Reuters, changed the way it interpreted poll data, placing those who said they don't know in the Hillary camp. They argue that anyone who doesn't know at this point is sure to vote for Hillary since they couldn't, according to the small minds of the Reuters staff, ever conceive of voting for Trump.
Meanwhile the President of the United States, showing absolutely no class or an "above the fray" approach, goes before the cameras and says that Trump is unfit to be President. Wow, the President with the worst track record in American history, who sides with our enemies and even terrorists against the American people, and who has fomented hate and discontent against the very fabric of our great land, claims Trump would be a huge problem. No, folks, the President is the problem and more and more Americans are rapidly coming to that conclusion.
And what about the Trump campaign since the Khan incident which has been re-run to death by a media that has no clue as to what good, unbiased journalism is supposed to be? Well, Trump held back to back overflow campaign rallies in Florida (Daytona and Jacksonville) Wednesday and announced that his campaign war chest grew $82 million richer in July, a haul close to the Clinton machine numbers for the month. The Trump Train is anything but derailed; it is just getting started.
Sure Donald has a penchant for sometimes speaking too directly from the cuff and getting off track, but it is that very factor that has endeared him to so many. Average Americans can relate to him. And as for the numbers, consider these factors. In 2012, over five million less votes were cast for President than in 2008. The percentage of registered voters who voted was only fifty-eight percent. So what happens if the number ticks up significantly and people who never voted before in their lives decide to vote? There is no way to truly measure that, but as Robert Costa of the Washington Post surmises, due to the attitude of so many of American who are fed up with the status quo, many could very well decide to vote this year. And it is very likely those votes, if cast, will be going to the outsider, Donald Trump, not to Hillary Clinton, the quintessential insider who will merely carry on the Barack Obama tradition of bringing down this great land.
And why are so many Establishment Republicans going out of their way to cast disparity on Trump when they've never had the courage to challenge Obama? The answer is because they are more concerned about their selfish standing, perks and power than they are about what America needs and America is finally realizing just how true that is. So don't worry about the Trump Train and where it's going, just decide to hop on board and join the adventure. This ride may very well be the closest thing to an American revolution we'll see in our lifetime and it is long overdue.
