With the close of the Democratic National Convention on Thursday, including nominee Hillary Clinton’s speech, I spoke with BBC Radio Wales today about the Presidential campaigns on the way to November’s vote for the White House.
The discussion is one marked by uncertainty — given the unprecedented nature of Republican nominee Donald Trump’s approach — and concern about Trump’s hostile and divisive language.
Best guess? In the end, the Democrats’ emphasis on a “positive” message of Americans working together will triumph over the “negative” declarations of Trump — who is running without the support of the Republican Party establishment — about an America mired in fear and decline and needing him as a savior.
But, given how Trump has defied expectations to succeed so far — at least with a significant minority of Americans — that is just a guess.
