I have long thought that Trump would lose. I have never been cocksure about this. I cannot supress a growing sense of optimism. Yet twould be rashly premature to pronounce victory till November.
Michael Bloomberg has come out against him. He excoriated Trump at the Democratic National Convetion. Bloomberg is a Republican who won in New York which is usually Democrat territory. He carries much weight. McCain has castigated Trump’s vile slurs against the family of a fallen soldier simply because they happen to be Muslim. People are beginning to see that victimising people because they are Muslim is just as bad as victimising them for being Christian, Jewish or atheist.
Hillary Clinton has many advantages on her side. It is a disgrace that she is not further ahead in the polls. She has on average a 7% lead. This could yet evaporate before polling day. She has skeletons in her closet. She is sometimes wooden. She is detested by a large minority of Americans. I hold no brief for a woman who has continually spoken up from crimes against humanity. She is savagely anti-Palestinian. On the other hand Trump is anti everyone.
