Despite all the slime and party traitors, Donald Trump still has a chance

Democrats and the Clinton campaign -- by which I mean the media -- have thrown more slime and dirt at the Republican presidential nominee than any other politician in the history of television. Yet, Mr. Trump is still standing. Published October 18, 2016

Bush vs. Clinton redux in 2016
