    I suspect Manafort if you ignore how questionable of a character he is, was one of those who was trying to swerve him in some sort of less suicidal direction, the sycophants this week probably were reassuring Trump that his style of campaigning he adopted to win the republican nomination is exactly what was needed to win over the masses.

    Attack Establiment and become a 'man of the people' ----> Fall from grace and become a Sinner ----> Repent ----> Claim Redemption ----> Become the Saviour of the people ----> Victory


    It's an interesting campaign strategy that would have no resonance in a country like Australia. But it's a story full of symbolism that Christian America would immediately understand and go for.

    I think that the 'pivot' is deliberately timed and orchestrated. How much of the electorate falls for it remains to be seen.

    Nice sample size.

    And rallies count more than polls too.

    appeal to white independents and swing voters disguised as a outreach to african americans...the idea is to get white undecideds, defectors and independents to believe that he is not really a bigot...

    The GOP have been trying this for decades, not sure how Trump is going to have any success.

    there has never been a more openly bigoted candidate than trump in modern presidential history so that is kind of new...given hillary's shaky standing with the electorate, it may still be partially successful if he manages to stick to message long enough...

    Uh, George Wallace? Trump's sheer buffoonery and blatant authoritarian Erdoganesque streak is unique I agree, but for sheer simple bigotry I think segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever wins.
