No, the Trump Campaign Isn't Done For

The "X-Factor" will be the debate on Sunday night. How many questions will be asked of Trump about his lewd comments and how many questions will Clinton be asked about the recent email dump by Wikileaks that reveals her support for open borders, free trade, and cutting Social Security?  Trump would do well to complain bitterly about media bias if no one is asking Clinton about her shocking comments to Wall Street bankers.

If Trump can weather the debate, there's a good chance that the issue will disappear in a few days. That's been the pattern followed by previous Trump outrages: he says something stupid, Republicans run for cover, Democrats rail against him, the media excoriates him -- and then within a week, his poll numbers are back to where they were.

The next 48 hours will tell the tale.
