Further Proof The Donald Will Lose

After last night's final presidential debate between Hillary "I Got This" Clinton and Donald "I'm Losing It" Trump, it's clear Mr. Trump's declaration that he may or may not accept the results of the election hurt him and badly.  Check out just some of the headlines this morning.

First, on what Mr. Trump actually said:

Trump on Whether He’ll Accept Election Results: 'I'll Keep You in Suspense'

Herewith, some takeaways, responses to Mr. Trump.

CNN's Cuomo Drills Conway On Trump Rejecting Election Results: He's Disavowing the Process!

This, from the very Right Wing pollster Hugh Hewitt. Even he admits Mr. Trump took a hit.

Another Right Wing voice:

Two takes from Jake Tapper.

Four takes from mainstream media:

The Associated Press had this rather more maybe official and rather dour evaluation of Mr. Trump's comment.

For what it's worth, two opinions and descriptions of last night's comments from Mr. Trump from Rachel Maddow.

Mr. Van Jones take on it all will likely surprise no one.

Of course, one can always take the course of denial.

Kellyanne Conway Says Trump Will Accept Results of Election — Because Trump Will Win the Election

The New York Times conclusion, turning Mr. Trump's own words on him:

Finally, then, today, one last result from last night's debacle for Mr. Trump.

Ladies and gentlemen, what you are witnessing, what we are all witnessing is the freefall of one Mr. Donald J. Trump, electorally and popularly, and what was formerly known as the Republican Party in America, let there be no doubt.

My only concern is the power vacuum it will create. We have to hope for who and what will replace it.

I will say this, this has been the most fascinating, bizarre, unpredictable and even dangerous election, all, and solely due to Mr. Trump, his candidacy and his pronouncements and reactions in it. The only explanation that seems to make sense about it all is that he put himself up to do this, to run and run in the campaign as far and long as possible, in order to destroy the Republican ticket, if not the entire political party. I'd heard that rumor. It's out there. But by doing this, he's hurt himself, his corporate brand and, yes, the political party.

It's the only thing that makes sense. What little sense it does make.
