Donald Trump is coming off his most impressive week since the Republican National Convention. The momentum is building as he pivots his campaign with personnel changes, but polling seems to show this is still a tight race.
Last week I broke down his speech on how to Make America Safe Again, but that was just the first of a series of fantastic speeches.
Trump went to Milwaukee amidst the riots, where he appealed directly to the African American communities so disproportionately affected by the violence, and who so often live in failed, Democratic-run cities.
There was also a shift in Trump’s tone.
He apologized for hurtful comments in a general way, just enough to provide a look at his softer side.
It’s the same compassionate side we saw later, when he flew down to Louisiana on Friday to view the aftermath of the worst disaster to hit the region since Hurricane Katrina. His opponents and the press quickly accused him of wanting nothing more than a photo op, but he left a sizable personal donation behind.
I tend to stay away from polls conducted by major national news organizations. WATCH as I explain which polls are prefer, and what they indicate about the state of the race.
