Keep in mind, as TK Whiteman wrote, that former President Bill Clinton STILL engages in the same rhetoric Trump used 11 years ago, but no one is demanding Hillary step down…

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

Other Republican leaders are demanding Trump drop out of the race. The Republican National Committee has withdrawn its mailings for Trump. Chuck Todd of NBC News reported Saturday that right now, “it’s every Republican for themselves.”

They are worried that Trump’s 2005 comments — made when he was a businessman, TV star, and private citizen — will be the next Todd Akin moment, when Republicans let Democrats saddle them with one odd comment about abortion in 2012. Then as now, Republicans compounded the damage by treating a media controversy as a “crisis.”

It is worth asking whether this panicked mob has the rudimentary courage required to stand up to the Islamic State, or Vladimir Putin, if they cannot bear the pressure of a manufactured “October surprise.”

And indeed, it is manufactured.  We’re supposed to believe the Washington Post had this video for 11 years and just now decided to drop it.  First, who saved that video for 11 years and second, why wait until now?  Why didn’t the Post drop it during the primary?

While Republican elites are assuming the fetal position, readers are telling us they’ll still vote for Trump despite this audio.

Yesterday, we posted a poll to see if the audio would have any impact on voters.  The poll is still open, but here’s the results so far, and they pretty much speak for themselves:

vote for trumpAs we suspected, the audio really didn’t change any voters’ minds.  Sure a few say they are voting for another candidate, but the vast majority say it doesn’t really matter.  This corresponds to comments we have seen online.

Joel Pollack, observing that he’s heard language not much better from some of these elites, wrote: “If they are willing to lose the country — for that is what may be at stake — over a decade-old joke, they might deserve to lose.”

Trump, however, says he’s not stepping down.

Oh, look… A shiny object…
