The race for the GOP nomination will be white hot soon, as you can see by this link which is a shot at getting the whispering campaign going against Sen.Marco Rubio who is gaining ground but on who public perception is still forming.
Donald Trump has proven some of the verbal taboos are not holding up and I am not sure things like a fling with a mistress are that damaging. Admissions to illegal drug use are now excused and people my age have seen the change from the days Rocky's divorce derailed his ambitions to now when SSM is widely accepted.
The next debate on December 15 is important, then it's Christmas but there is little time there for a break as January will be non-stop and intense in the early promary/caucus states.
Can Donald Trump be halted from running the table on the first five states ? If he does roll, the establishment will have to make a last stand with someone. That's why Marco Rubio's image matters as he may be the go-to guy when Jeb finally folds.
