In a single answer to Fox Business, Donald Trump revealed that he is totally delusional.
Fox Business’s Maria Bartiromo asked Trump about changes to his campaign, and the Republican nominee gave a shockingly out of touch answer:
Well, I think that you know, my temperament has gotten me here. I’ve always had a good temperament, and it’s gotten me here. I beat a lot of people in the primaries, and we only have one left, and we’re actually doing pretty well there, but we’ll see where it all comes out. We have some good state information. We actually have some very good polling information, so we’ll see how it all comes out, but you know, you can’t and you don’t want to. I certainly don’t think it is appropriate to start changing all of a sudden when you’ve been winning. I mean, I’ve beaten many people, and now we’re down to one. And we’ll see how it works out, but I think it’s going to work out well.
Donald Trump is losing this election. Things are going the opposite of well for Trump. The Republican nominee has managed to put solid red states like Utah, Georgia, and Arizona into play. He is getting crushed by double-digits in the Rust Belt states that were deemed essential for his campaign to be successful.
Trump is not winning, but he doesn’t understand that what worked in the Republican primary isn’t going to work in the general election. The general electorate is bigger and more diverse than the white conservative support that Trump gathered to win the nomination.
The Republican nominee is on the verge of the presidential election turning into a rout, but he sees no need for changes.
Donald Trump believes that all of the polls showing him losing are wrong. Trump is so far removed from reality that he really believes that if he keeps doing what he is doing he will win.
There is still plenty of time left in the campaign and for a candidate who is trailing, but a realist would have pointed this fact out during the interview. A nominee that understands reality would be addressing their weaknesses and retooling their campaign for a fall sprint.
Donald Trump is winning an election in his own imagination, and his one answer to Fox Business revealed a nominee who has left reality behind and is completely delusional.
