Watching last Sunday night’s presidential debate, I couldn’t help but think I was witnessing a ‘dead man walking’ — and not because of the lewd, disgusting comments Donald Trump made about women in 2005. For the second time in a row, Republican candidate Trump flunked the commander-in-chief test. Basically his answers about Russia, Aleppo and Syria in general not only were uninspiring, they were woefully underwhelming.

No presidential candidate has lost two debates and then gone on to win the general election. The big question for Republicans coast to coast now is this: How much longer will you remain loyal supporters of the Donald? Given the trickle of defections that began last Saturday, Mr. Trump did little during the debate to calm the political waters. My guess is there will be a mass exodus this week.

Dead men can’t talk, so I’ll say it: The Trump campaign is over.
