Is the presidential election already over?
To quote The Christian Science Monitor: “The nation’s Republicans are working against the clock to answer two key questions: Can [their candidate] possibly attract enough independent and Democratic votes to win in November?
“And if he is likely to lose,” the Monitor wonders, does another candidate still have “time enough to challenge him for the GOP nomination?…
“Intellectuals don’t want to take him seriously,” it continues, but concedes that “he does well with working-class voters.” And he could “do well in the pivotal Midwest states like Ohio and Illinois, whose southern regions tilted [Democratic]” in the previous election.
