Donald Trump is aiming to pull off one of the greatest political comebacks in history.
EDITOR’S NOTE: This is what’s known in the business as “hedging your bets”. Yes, CNN, the Clinton News Network, is absolutely all in for Crooked Hillary. But at the end of the day, there are bills to be paid, and that’s just a hard, cold fact of life. So CNN, seeing the seemingly unstoppable Trump Train, has decided to play both sides of the street for awhile to see what side the slice of buttered bread falls on. Trump Train…now boarding for 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue!
The Republican nominee is rebounding from a summer of repeated stumbles that threatened to undermine his candidacy, underscoring his ability to claw his way back and stay competitive despite controversies that would sink any other politician.
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton enter the critical post-Labor Day phase of the campaign in a dead heat. A CNN/ORC national poll released Tuesday finds Trump ahead of Clinton by two points — 45% to 43% — among likely voters. The race is also tight among registered voters, where Clinton has a three point advantage. Both findings are within the margin of error.
The narrowing of the race is a remarkable feat for Trump, who was down 10 points a month ago in CNN’s Poll of Polls.
“Hello, Cleveland…*cough*…*ah-hack*….we are so happy to…*cough*…*cough*…be here!”
If Trump can spend the next 63 days shining a relentless and unforgiving spotlight on Clinton’s vulnerabilities and avoid more self-inflicted wounds, there could be a path — however narrow — for him to reach the White House.
“Can he fundamentally alter the focus of this election right now — which is on him?” asked Bill Lacy, a GOP veteran who ran presidential campaigns for Bob Dole and Fred Thompson. “He needs to make this election about Secretary Clinton.”
Donald Trump has captured the imagination of the American people like no other since Ronald Reagan:
Forward to minute 3:00 to see the massive size of the crowds following Trump around. He has more people at one rally then Hillary has at half a dozen.
Trump’s best chance for altering the race lies in the presidential debates, which begin September 26 and will serve as critical tests of his temperament and knowledge. In front of a vast television audience, the GOP nominee could reshape perceptions of his character and readiness — if he can avoid being drawn into gaffes and personality clashes by Clinton.

He will benefit from rock-bottom expectations, given controversies whipped up by his tempestuous personality and the vast gulf in experience between Trump and Clinton.
There will be no space for the billionaire to relax and regenerate his energy while rivals spar or networks cut to commercial breaks. The intensity of the questioning and his confrontation with a prepared and experienced candidate like Clinton will leave no place to hide.
Still, there is much for him to gain in the three scheduled televised showdowns and he will get an unfiltered chance to raise Clinton’s political vulnerabilities before the American people. source
