One of the main reasons Donald Trump is so popular, is because for so long he was given a relatively free ride.
All he had to deal with were attacks from the other Republican candidates.
And as we know they weren't much competition...
But now the general election campaign is about to get underway, the Democrats are coming after him.
And it turns out he's just not ready.
He's already failing or flailing.
After Ted Cruz left the GOP race and Trump had all but clinched the nomination, Republicans tried to sell themselves on the idea of a silver lining in all of this: that Trump might be more competitive that he looks, that he might help the party expand in traditionally Democratic states. But if this week is any indication, those hopes are delusions.
Trump isn’t just a compromised candidate hated by large parts of the electorate—he’s hardly a candidate at all, with few of the skills or qualities you need to survive at the highest levels of national politics. Trump has all the markings of a paper tiger, and there’s a good chance he’ll be torn apart like one, too.
And there's no better way to illustrate that, than by comparing the first crop of general election attack ads.

Which looks like it slipped
And now compare it to this one from a super PAC supporting Hillary Clinton...
Which packs a real punch, and makes Trump look like an inhuman monster.
And golly I like this one too...
Which in just a few seconds makes it clear why he's unfit to be the leader of the world's most powerful nuclear armed nation.
If this endorsement from another "Great Leader" didn't already do that...

And then of course there's this attack ad, that sums up what Trump really is...
A blowhard, a fraud, and a Con artist.
Now imagine what six months of ads like all of the above are going to do to that ghastly bigot's reputation, and his poll numbers.
And yes, as I long ago predicted.
Humpty Trumpty has been cruising for a bruising.
And now he's going to get one...
