Clinton could blow the election

Another columnist is pointing out that Hillary Clinton could lose to Republican Donald Trump in the fall election, if Democrats are reckless enough to give her the nomination despite her poor performance against Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

In a column entitled, “How Hillary Clinton could blow it,” Michael Brendan Dougherty outlines a number of faults that cold cause the former secretary of state to lose what now appears to be a lead over the GOP candidate.

Dougherty is a senior correspondent at whose work has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, ESPN Magazine, Slate and The American Conservative, who said:

Donald Trump was anointed the presumptive Republican nominee and the chatter from inside the Beltway was that Democrats were settling on labeling him “Dangerous Donald.” The next day, Paul Krugman used the “dangerous” word in his column to describe Trump and his supporters. This kind of message makes you wonder: Is Hillary Clinton going to blow this?

First, let me state the obvious. Right now the polls show Clinton whipping Trump from pillar to post in November. Under normal circumstances this gap should close somewhat as Republicans and independents who don’t like Trump come around to him as they contemplate another Clinton presidency, and as they simply become habituated to the Donald as a presence in American political life. Clinton’s lead should hold out to the end. But Hillary has a way of screwing up in campaigns that is going to make Democrats nervous about once a week.
