There have been many rumors in recent weeks that the Trump campaign is starting to disintegrate. This is not surprising. All you have to do is read Trump's Twitter feed to see that the president does not like bad news and he will kill any messenger who brings it to him. Lately, there has been a whole lot of bad campaign news.

The New York Times has reported that Trump has been getting so angry at the decaying poll numbers that he yelled at campaign manager Brad Parscale and threatened to sue him during a heated phone call. (Parscale reportedly replied, "I love you too," and flew up to Washingon right away to mend fences.)

Indeed, the polls have not been looking good for Trump, but then they haven't looked very good his entire term. An impeached president whose approval rating has always hovered around 42% doesn't have a lot of room for error to begin with. Now that he's shown what a disastrous leader he is in a crisis, there very little prospect that it's going to improve.
