Wall Street Journal:
President Barack Obama warned against Democratic complacency Monday, telling members of his party that Republican nominee Donald Trump could still win the White House in this unpredictable election season.
At a fundraiser in Martha’s Vineyard, Mr. Obama made an enthusiastic pitch for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and called on her supporters to work aggressively during the final 12 weeks of this campaign, saying that this race was far from over.
“If we are not running scared until the day after the election, we are going to be making a grave mistake,” the president told Democratic donors.
“We are still going to have to fight what has been an unrelenting negative campaign against her that has made a dent in the opinion of people even who are inclined to vote for her,” Mr. Obama said.
“I don’t have to make the case against her opponent because every time he talks, he makes the case against his own candidacy,” Mr. Obama said.
The President of course is right. And it is the same point that I have made on this blog over and over again.
Yes the Donald Trump campaign is a slow motion train wreck.
Yes the Republican party is disintegrating right before our eyes.
Yes most minority voters would rather suffer waterboarding, or be forced to watch Punky Brewster reruns, than vote for "The Donald."
But just like every horror monster in cinematic history you should never consider the creature dead until the final credits rolls.
And those final credits are not until AFTER the election.
