    That's remarkable. South Carolina has voted for a Dem just once in the last fifty years. They went for Goldwater in 1964 and have been solidly Republican except for Jimmy Carter, once in 1976.

    It is becoming increasingly clear why Replublicans keep talking about an "October Surprise". Because without some massive, earth-shattering surprise, obliterating Clinton as a candidate, Trump is face a less, and less likely scenario where he regains enough grounds to beat Hillary.

    But, at this point, unless that "surprise" includes footage of Clinton, taking money from Kin Jung Un, or Vladimir Putin, while handing one of them the blueprints for American missiles, along with enough nuclear material to arm said missile, I'm not sure that any "October Surprise" would be enough to make up the lost ground.

    I mean it cannot just be "embarrassing". It will have to be something that is clearly, and unambiguously illegal, that will get her arrested, and forced off the race. I don't see anything else working, at this point.

    This is so and ......rarely EVER would be at this stage. Trump can not create a resume that never was,nor can he UNSAY the stupid,nasty crap he said.

    Who backs him now? Not the guy who's advice most folks respect. You can make up ground IF your fans DO influence people. I mean...in a GOOD way. Rant + rage jerks......not so much. Trump HAS the Bigot fringe and the reality TV cult followers.. so.. no growth there.

    On Trophy Wife #3..... Family Values won't work. His take ( aka soundbite slogans) do NOT help him on economics and foreign policy where the REPUBS with any Cred are running away from him. His "claim" of being super business ace......is getting exposed. Not releasing the Tax Data.. says SOMETHING is fishy. What? Well....many say he lies about his income/net worth... by a BUNCH. He offshores....big time. Very Hypocrite. Who "invests" in him? Has he scammed people (yeah..a lot) has he paid his due taxes? Doubt it.

    WTF moments? Okay Trump.. we KNOW you hate Muslims but......you lay off a Gold Star family....... now Veterans and Military are PISSED.
    AFAIK... if you Hint,joke, imply that GUN NUTS could/should shoot +kill the opponent......that's a line no sane person crosses. Inviting Russia to hack? Bad taste.

    Sorry Trump.. but YOU ARE FIRED. Go home and STFU. You had your '' moment" and blew it (you arrogant ass)
