I am on record saying that Hillary Clinton will never be president. She is an awful candidate, and will be an awful candidate even if she is lucky enough not to be indicted. And I have said that anyone the Republicans nominate will beat her. But is it possible that in Donald Trump, the GOP has found the one candidate unpopular enough to lose to the appalling Hillary Clinton?
Our friend Gabriel Schoenfeld has compiled these sobering data:
Gallup Unfavorable Ratings:
Vladimir Putin, 69%;
Bashar al Assad, 68%;
DONALD TRUMP 63%.
Bill Cosby, 62%;
Al Sharpton, 62 %,

Looking on the bright side, the Republicans aren’t going to nominate Vladimir Putin, no matter how much Trump admires him. And Assad is busy these days. They can’t nominate Sharpton–slightly more popular than Trump–because he is a Democrat. But Trump? He’s available! And the GOP isn’t called the Stupid Party for nothing.
