Continuing to analyze Donald Trump's bad presidential campaign since June
, the bad news just keeps coming for Trump and the GOP and keeps getting worse. Trump's campaign is continually troubled and disorganized, and Trump's own image keeps getting worse. The only temporary bright spot was after Trump's nomination acceptance speech from the Republican National Convention on July 21, where he almost closed in to Hillary Clinton in the polls, nearly tied. Then the Democratic National Convention was held the following week, taking numerous and effective shots at Trump's integrity (why doesn't Trump release his tax returns), his scams (Trump University and stiffing the payment of his contractors who worked on his Atlantic City casinos), bad business decisions and bankruptcies, racist and misogynist hatred, lack of knowledge of foreign affairs or anything else, and his crazy, off-the-wall mind and temperament.
After Hillary Clinton's DNC speech on July 28, Trump fell behind again in the polls. Not only did Trump lose his lead in the polls, but he fell even further behind after more controversial events. This CNN article
shows how bad his last few days of July were. Trump started a feud with his usual false and baseless attacks against the parents of a Muslim American soldier, Captain Humayun Khan who sacrificed his life in the Iraq war so his troop would be alive today. Trump received overwhelmingly negative reactions for his baseless attacks, including leaders of the GOP like House speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell, and Senator John McCain. Trump also made another stupid and false foreign policy statement, claiming Russian President Vladimir Putin wouldn't make a military move into Ukraine - even though Putin has already done that by seizing the Crimean Peninsula in 2014.
There is no win-lose situation with Donald Trump and the Republicans know it. It's not even a lose-lose situation. It's literally a lose-or-lose-more situation with Donald Trump. Even if Donald Trump pulls of a miracle and wins by a hair (or loses slightly and tampers with the vote recall like in the 2000 elections to steal the election), Trump will be so crazy, whacked out, and off-the-wall that Republicans will see record losses in political seats at the federal, state, and local levels in our checks and balances political system. The Republicans know it and this is why even they are not supporting Trump for President.
