Liberal Media Says Trump Support is Dropping

No, really, I am linking to the "liberal media."

As the hard-fought general election gets underway, Trump’s political standing is on dangerous ground. Fifty-six percent of the public at large say the celebrity business mogul stands against their beliefs, while 64 percent say he does not have the necessary credentials to be president. Fifty-six percent feel strongly that he is unqualified.

Nearly one-third of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents say Trump is unqualified for office, and 18 percent say he does not represent their beliefs, exposing fissures in the GOP base.

Underscoring these doubts, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) refused when pressed Sunday to say whether he thought Trump was qualified.

Seventeen days until the Republican convention, minus 4 for the holiday weekend equals less than two weeks until that bloodletting. Mike Ditka will not be speaking, unless you get your news from the Free Beacon. Soon we should know whether John Miller will be the running mate.

I might suggest someone from ISIS could fill that speaking slot that opened up when Iron Mike dropped out.

In some quarters of the dark internet, where supporters of the Islamic State and other extremist groups linger, the presumptive GOP nominee has emerged a rallying point of sorts. To them, he is the “perfect enemy,” as one Islamic State defector told a researcher interviewed by TPM, and they are using his posturing to advance their own agenda, according to another analyst.
