After weeks of disgusting behavior by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump his campaign is in crisis mode. From Trump losing the support of key Republican leaders, to his falling polling numbers some pundits are already calling the election for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton with several weeks still to go before the American people venture to the ballot box to case their vote.
In particular Charlie Cook, who publishes the popular “Cook Political Report“, took to Twitter to announced that Trump’s goose has been cooked and that he has no chance to win based on the most recently available polling data. Cook Tweeted:
Take a close look at the new Fox News poll released tonight. This race is OVER. https://t.co/YHjQgZ96Gs

Cook was questioned about his Tweet and said the following:
Poll was devastating for Trump, from start to finish. Trial heats, favorable/unfavorable, candidate attributes, trust on handling issues, role model for children — all horrific for Trump.
What is most devastating for Trump is Cook paraded out a Fox News poll, of all outlets, to showcase just how far Trump’s star had fallen. Trump is now losing to Hillary Clinton by a full 7 points, which is well inside the 4 point margin of error. Trump is sitting on 38 percent support while Clinton is sitting on a rousing 45. What remains to be seen is how the final debate between the two candidates will impact the current polling data, and if Clinton will continue to pull away or if Trump will a magic rabbit out of his hat to resurrect his chances to capture the Oval Office.
