Willie Brown Warning "Trump team will hit hard to reap rewards of split votes"

We all need GOTV for HRC victory

All of you who have been counting Donald Trump out of the presidential race, remember, the real race doesn’t begin until Sept. 1.

What we’ve seen up until now, including the Donald’s missteps, misspeaks and mistakes, is the political equivalent of spring training.

Within the next two weeks, you are going to see a wholly different campaign. Former Fox News chief Roger Ailes will handle Trump in the same fashion he made a conservative TV network the force it is today.

My fear, as a Democrat, is that the Ailes’ strategy will be to reduce the message during the final months down to trustworthiness — the single issue where polls show Trump stands a chance of besting Hillary Clinton. And that is a frightening prospect.

(Snip)

Trump will spend the fourth quarter hammering away on those two issues: change and trust. The uglier he can make the campaign, the more undecided voters will be inclined to cast protest votes with third-party candidates.

1. Agree!

2. All that means is that the Clinton Campaign has to be ready (and i think they will) to push back

with a sledgehammer.
