Trump's magic is evaporating on the campaign trail

When Donald Trump campaigns on behalf of Republican candidates, there is little doubt he inspires his base to vote. But after two high-profile Republican gubernatorial losses in deep red states Kentucky and Louisiana it's worth asking if Trump's efforts are animating more people to vote for Democrats than Republicans.

Though Trump campaigned on behalf of Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin and a GOP challenger in Louisiana challenger, both lost in closely watched elections. Of course, there are many factors at play in statewide elections, but there's no denying that in those tworaces, where polls showed the candidates neck and neck shortly before the election, Trump alone couldn't deliver GOP wins.

The most recent example came Saturday in Louisiana, a state Trump won by almost 20 points in 2016, between incumbent Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards and businessman Eddie Rispone. Trump traveled to Louisiana last week to hold a raucous rally, where he told supporters, "In two days, I really need you, but you really need you, to send a message to the corrupt Democrats in Washington," he said. "They are corrupt. They are crazy, crazy." Then, referring to the recent Kentucky defeat, he added, "So, Trump took a loss ... so you got to give me a big win, please. OK? OK?!"

But Trump's efforts to help Rispone went far beyond that rally. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence called conservative radio shows in the Bayou State in the lead-up to the election, promoting the Republican candidate. Trump recorded a get out the vote robocall and sent out tweets in support of Rispone. Trump's political operation even spent money to help Rispone. As Pence stated Friday, while making a radio appearance in support of Rispone, "The President and I have left it all on the field."

Trump never had any magic. There aren't enough bigoted assholes to bail him out every time.

6. You got this, "Yo Mama!"

NO big-shot analyst has said it any better:

"Trump never had any magic. There aren't enough bigoted assholes to bail him out every time."
