Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
All true, and you make what you want of current polls, but some of them are damn close in key swing states at the moment:

FLORIDA: Clinton 43 - Trump 42; Sanders 44 - Trump 42
OHIO: Clinton 39 - Trump 43; Sanders 43 - Trump 41
PENNSYLVANIA: Clinton 43 - Trump 42; Sanders 47 - Trump 41

People, especially Dem constituencies, are not tuned in yet. Plus Trump is getting the bump from his "coronation," Clinton or Sanders hasn't had that fortune yet. There'll be more bumps - both McCain and Romney were also ahead of Obama, in a crappy econmy, along the election cycle.

If this is the best Trump has (and it probably is) he is in trouble.

My concern here is voter suppression.  That's the wildcard that could skew everything.  The GOP knows it can't win non-whites, so it has been working at at the state level to reinstate Jim Crow.

And the only defence against that is a Supreme Court with integrity.
