Has Donald Taken the Wheels Off His Campaign War Wagon?
Harper telegraphed it was over for him and his rancid government three days before last October's election when moving trucks showed up delivering pallets of flat pack boxes and hauling away full ones from the prime minister's office.
Donald Trump doesn't have an office to vacate - and sanitize - before the votes are counted on November 8 but that doesn't mean there aren't other ways for him to telegraph his defeat.
Well behind in the polls but boisterously defiant one might expect Trump to be pouring money into ads in crucial swing states. Only he's not. Instead he's actually pulling them, giving up reserved air time. That's Trump's way of showing he knows he's already lost.
HuffPo speculates that Trump may have run out of money but there's no real sign of that. My guess is that he's doing what he's always done when a deal turns sour - he cuts his losses and gets out early, usually leaving his investors to take the big hit.
