Big Gamble?

Trump’s Big Gamble

From CNN:

Donald Trump speaks at a news conference at Trump Tower where he addressed issues about the money he pledged to donate to veterans groups following a skipped a debate in January before the Iowa caucuses on May 31, 2016 in New York City.

(CNN) Donald Trump’s reshuffling of his staff this week portends a risky pivot: a bare-knuckled, outsider-focused effort where no tactic for taking down Hillary Clinton will be off limits.

His plummeting poll numbers suggest that he is cruising toward defeat in November unless he is able to drastically change course. But it is unclear how recent leadership changes will help Trump reverse his core problems: his murky message, his scattershot ground game, and his unwillingness to appeal to a broader group of voters.

I think he got tired of fighting with the advisors he had, who were telling him to be more presidential and stop being so combative.  In his mind, he won because he was not presidential and was harsh and combative, so why mess with success?

He doesn't understand the difference between what happened in the primaries and what is necessary to win in the general election.

Quoting Pema_Jampa:

Pema, I'm so ashamed of my party. If Trump wins seriously considering leaving, becoming independent. 

If Hillary wins I plan to stay and fight for decent candidates to represent the party.
