3. Dropping below 40 is bad for Trump but what is even worse is the solidifying of his numbers at about
40 percent. In other words, the big effect of Flynn is that it will be much harder to get the numbers back up again than it was before.
And, of course, all of this happened before yesterday's bizarre news conference. He came off like a nut job and a racist.
The media has suggested that it will play well to much of his base, and perhaps a little beyond. It reminded me of Fred Thompson, in the 2008 GOP primary debates, delivering smack down lines to the moderator. The pundits insisted he had a good debate every time, and yet his numbers kept dropping.
I don't think voters are going to believe that Trump is the victim of political correctness when people show him asking a black journalist to set up a meeting with the CBC for him and implying that this is ridiculous.
