Trump got an "out" with Pence.

He chose Pence to help with the evangelicals and hard right to get the money those groups would bring in. When he loses in November (I did say "loses&quot he will be able to say it was because he was forced by the GOP establishment to go with Pence.

He should have tried to swayed the middle.

He loses big time now.

Sorry - don't have a link. The upshot was Hillary is polling within MOE of Trump in normally reliably Republican Utah. Reason being that many of the LDS are so disgusted with Trump that they will either skip that space on the ballot or vote Gary Johnson.

4. He wants an "out" before the election...I wonder if this will start his trying to actively drop out.

He'll say he was bullied and they are taking over, maybe this was the plan from the beginning and part of that will be to just pick Romney or Cruz at the convention after Donald drops out.

I know, it's PROBABLY wishful thinking, but Trump is really starting to show signs of being sick of the whole thing.

Yes, you can bet that any shortcomings (if you know what I mean) in the Trump campaign will all be someone else's fault.
