The latest on the presidential horse race.

Trump Gets Trumped by Clinton in Michigan

The latest Michigan poll by FOX 2 Detroit/Mitchell has been an unfriendly one for Donald Trump, who fell by 10 points to his rival Hillary Clinton.

Which presidential candidate would you vote for?

  • Hillary Clinton – 49%
  • Donald Trump – 39%

Clinton continues to play the slow game and it is working. By letting Trump dominate the media, she has completely taken the spotlight off of her own campaign and her political baggage.

Every day, Trump or his campaign says something idiotic to the media. Dating back to the beginning, it started with Trump’s wall and Muslim ban proposals, and today, it continues with his war of words with the Khan family and other individuals.

Trump’s biggest weaknesses are his inability to keep quiet and apologize when he makes mistakes. The tough guy persona he plays may work in business, but in politics it is the equivalent of tying your own noose. Politics is a game of subtlety and it requires a nuisanced individual that understands the intricacies of such a game. These are qualities that Trump does not possess and that his opponent does.

As the election draws closer, expect Clinton to cement the undecided voter block and push Trump into a corner in the presidential debates, where he will no longer be able to hide from discussing actual policy, beyond his usual talking points.
