You'd think I'd learn by now to stop betting against Trump. The other day I wrote: "There is zero chance that Trump can win the general election." Now Reuters is reporting "Trump surges in support, almost even with Clinton in national U.S. poll." This is in line with a Quinnipiac and PPP poll earlier this week.
Look, I don't like the guy. But there are a lot of disaffected voters who don't care: he's their guy. Back in February, I took note of a guy on NPR who said that if he can't vote for Bernie Sanders, he was going to vote for Trump. Then on Tuesday, the Hill had this headline: "Nearly half of W.Va. Sanders backers would vote Trump."
This is not a conventional election year, not by a long shot.
