Trump’s Path Forward?

Frank Luntz gained fame as the conservative “public opinion guru” who created many of the GOP talking points though the use of “focus groups”. So it is extremely interesting that Luntz put together a focus group of Trump supporters in Pennsylvania — a state that Trump claims he will win unless Clinton somehow cheats — to see how they are feeling:

Can Trump regain their vote? Or is Clinton cheating by merely letting Trump be Trump?

    I’m scared that they almost all started as supporters, and now most of them won’t vote for him. But then all of them would be willing to vote for him if he somehow didn’t act insane between now and election day.

    So all they have to do is give ztrump a Valium twice a day between now and the election day and he will be set to win. Such sincerity in the voting process, well it warms the cockles of my heart.

    I’m with Bard. If they see him now as acting crazy, but he somehow is reasonable for 3 months, then they think he could be reasonable for the next 4 years?

    The fact that someone would choose to vote for a person with obvious self control issues is alarming. That last woman who was putting the blame on his handlers lives in a world of her own. As for the two African Americans, I suspect the one that never talked on the tape was there for show.

    IL-08, I’d be on that panel, too, for the sake of appearances, if the money was right.

    Voting for Trump is another thing entirely, and the ballot is secret. ; )

    Hey folks, let’s not sell Trump short just yet. He’s apparently become very serious and sincere about connecting more with minority communities. Contrary to what the lamestream liberal media would have us believe, a previously unseen video clip recently surfaced demonstrating this commitment by showing him personally (if somewhat cautiously) reaching out to minority groups in Cleveland during his off hours at the GOP convention last month, really putting himself out there with his patented optimism and making, shall we say, quite an impression. I must admit to also being, if somewhat cautiously, optimistic at this point(*).
