According to the latest NBC/WSJ poll, conducted after the audio was leaked of Donald Trump bragging about sexually abusing women (and cheating on his wife Melania), the Republican nominee is now trailing Hillary Clinton by 11 points.
If elections were held today, the NBC/WSJ poll concludes, Trump would end up with a mere 35% of the vote. Hillary, on the other hand, would get 46%.

In September, the gap between these two candidates was Hillary +6. This means that the Democratic candidate has expanded her lead by 5 points.
That’s disastrous for Trump himself, but it also spells trouble the entire Republican Party:
Donald Trump at 35% would lose the House Republican majority. We’d be back to status quo ante the tea party. Dear God. This is a disaster.

The GOP could possibly lose all branches of government because of Trump. He’s not only destroying his own political career, but he’s taking the GOP down with him. If something doesn’t change fast — and, let’s be honest, it sure doesn’t look like things will change — the GOP will be annihilated come November.
And it’s all due to Trump — and the establishment, which ignored the concerns of the base for such a long time that they eventually chose to nominate a wacko clown who at least gave voice to their anger.
