New York Times:
Donald J. Trump plans to throw Bill Clinton’s infidelities in Hillary Clinton’s face on live television during the presidential debates this fall, questioning whether she enabled his behavior and sought to discredit the women involved.
Mr. Trump will try to hold her accountable for security lapses at the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and for the death of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens there.
And he intends to portray Mrs. Clinton as fundamentally corrupt, invoking everything from her cattle futures trades in the late 1970s to the federal investigation into her email practices as secretary of state.
Drawing on psychological warfare tactics that Mr. Trump used to defeat “Lyin’ Ted” Cruz, “Little Marco” Rubio and “Low-Energy” Jeb Bush in the Republican primaries, the Trump campaign is mapping out character attacks on the Clintons to try to increase their negative poll ratings and bait them into making political mistakes, according to interviews with Mr. Trump and his advisers.
Not exactly unexpected, and on the plus side with Trump showing his cards so early it gives Hillary plenty of time to prepare.
However on the negative side we still have the disrupting influence of the Sanders' campaign to contend with,
So on the one hand we have every bit of oppositional research the conservatives have been compiling against Hillary, both real and imagined, for the last thirty plus years, combined with Bernie Sanders telling everybody who will listen that the Democratic party is as corrupt as the Republican party.
Donald Trump energizes the conservatives base, and Bernie Sanders disenfranchises the independents and young people.
I used to wonder just how the Republicans could possibly overcome their demographic problems in a general presidential election.
I guess now I have my answer.
