Donald Trump is a strange standard-bearer for Republicans.Of the five previous Republican nominees for president, three will not publicly affirm that they would vote for Trump and I would bet that a fourth (John McCain) will not in the privacy of the voting booth. And yet, amazingly, in polls, Trump has received around the same level of support from Republicans as previous GOP nominees – so far. The election might well hinge on one simple issue – whether Republicans prove to be rational or tribal.When Republican and Republican-leaning likely voters were asked in an NBC News poll whether the debate had improved their opinion of Clinton, only 4 percent said yes. When the same group was asked whether it had worsened their impression of Trump, just 6 percent agreed. Remember that Trump has taken five different positions on abortion in three days.The signs to look for are whether Trump is losing any support among Republicans.
