01) Trump Dropping Out of 2020 Race?
“Is Trump dropping out of the race?
That’s Democratic strategist and “2020 Politics War Room” co-host James Carville on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Thursday morning, doubling down on his prediction last week that Donald Trump will drop out of the presidential race before November.
He suggested on the Comcast-operated CMCSA, -1.13% news channel that Republican senators including Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Martha McSally of Arizona and Dan Sullivan of Alaska will try to separate themselves from Trump this fall. “This is the great ‘Moscow Mitch’ strategy: ‘After Labor Day, we’re going to turn on him.’ That’s really going to work,” Carville said with sarcasm. “McSally and Sullivan and Lindsey have been licking his boots for three years and nine months. But, boy, come Labor Day, we’re going to get some separation.”
Carville continued by asserting “the chances of that working are zero. He is gonna drag the whole outfit down with him.” He listed anti-Trump campaigns such as the Republican-led Lincoln Project “bludgeoning him every night” and spending “tens of millions of dollars” to stop Trump from being re-elected — or, in his words, “to extract this menace from the body politic.

01) Polls Are Getting REALLY BAD For Trump
“Trump’s polls numbers are a disaster and getting worse.
The number of American voters who believe the country is on the wrong track has reached a record high during Donald Trump’s presidency, with a significant majority of voters also saying they disapprove of the job he is doing.
New polling by Morning Consult and Politico, which was conducted from June 26 to 29, found that 75 percent of voters believe the U.S. is on the wrong track, while just 25 percent believe things are headed in the right direction.
Morning Consult noted that this “marks the worst numbers on the question in the 183 polls conducted since immediately after Trump was elected in November 2016.” The previous record was set in polling data last month, when 69 percent of respondents said the country was on the wrong track and only 31 percent said it was headed in the right direction.

01) Trump Insider: He’s “Despondent,” Not In A Good Place Mentally Over 2020 Chances
“Loser Donald is getting more and more depressed over is 2020 chances.
With Donald Trump’s approval sinking to Jimmy Carter levels and coronavirus cases spiking across the country, Trump is reluctantly waking up to the grim reality that, if the current situation holds, his reelection is gone. Republicans that have spoken with Trump in recent days describe him as depressed and “down in the dumps.” “People around him think his heart’s not in it,” a Republican close to the White House said. Torn between the imperative to win suburban voters and his instincts to play to his base, Trump has complained to people that he’s in a political box with no obvious way out. According to the Republican, Trump called Tucker Carlson late last week and said, “what do I do? What do I do?”
To console himself, Trump still has moments of magical thinking. “He says the polls are all fake,” a Republican in touch with Trump told me. But the bad news keeps coming. This week, Jacksonville, Florida—where Trump moved the Republican National Convention so he could hold a 15,000-person rally next month—mandated that people wear masks indoors to slow the explosion of COVID-19 cases. According to a Republican working on the convention, the campaign is now preparing to cancel the event so that Trump doesn’t suffer another Tulsa–like humiliation. “They probably won’t have it,” the source said. “It’s not going to be the soft landing Trump wanted.

01) HORRIFIC Trump Polling Has Republicans Panicking
“Apparently, Republicans have just now figured out Trump is racist.
Republicans say President Trump should make a course correction and shift his strategy after a series of dismal polls showed him badly trailing presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
Republican senators thought Trump was cruising to reelection only a few months ago but they now worry his relentless focus on revving up his party’s base is hurting his chances, as well as their own of staying in control of the upper chamber.
“I think right now obviously Trump has a problem with the middle of the electorate, with independents, and they’re the people who are going to decide a national election,” Senate Majority Whip John Thune (R-S.D.) said Wednesday.

01) These Trump Ads Were So INSANE Even Facebook Rejected Them
“Trump is using Nazi dog whistles.
Facebook on Thursday took down Trump campaign ads against antifa that prominently featured a symbol used by Nazis to designate political prisoners, a spokesperson for the company confirmed to The Hill.
“We removed these posts and ads for violating our policy against organized hate,” Facebook said in a statement. “Our policy prohibits using a banned hate group’s symbol to identify political prisoners without the context that condemns or discusses the symbol.”
The ads featured an inverted red triangle, which was used by Nazis to identify political opponents including communists, social democrats and liberals at concentration camps.
