It's no surprise that process, tick tock and controversy always trumps issues when it comes to writing about politics. So the stories about Donald Trump's campaign woes continue even though the past ten days have gone quite well as far as message.
The reason the GOP is headed for the dust bin is so many of its leaders have dismissed the nomination process as a fluke and they talk openly about losing the White House in a bid to save other offices. They hope to quarantine the Presidency for this year to keep what they have.
Trouble is there's a name for those who plot to lose. They are called losers. http://www.politico.com/story/2016/08/donald-trump-reset-insiders-caucus-227177
