Trump Campaign in Free Fall Going into 2nd Debate, Expect All Guns Blazing With Nothing to Lose

ElectionOracle / US Presidential Election 2016 Oct 09, 2016 - 09:16 PM GMT

The leaked lewd audio tape from a decade ago is having a devastating impact on what was an already crippled Trump campaign that has been on a downward trend trajectory since losing the 1st debate, where virtually each day tends to bring forward more bad news as the mainstream press digs deeper into Trumps past.


"I moved on her like a *****, but I couldn't get there. and she was married."

In reference to TV presenter Arian whom he was meeting

"I better use some Tic Tac's just in case I start kissing her."

"You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful - I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait."

"And when you're a star they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the p ussy. You can do anything."

The audio tape leak is continuing to have a disastrous impact on Trumps chances of winning as Republican support ebbs away. Not even the tax returns come close to this calamity! So all of the hard work done by Mike Pence in beating Tim Kaine in the Vice Presidents debate has now more than been undone. Worse still is there's still a month to go! How many more cringe inducing tapes will be leaked?

Whilst the opinion polls still show little shift with Hillary on 45% and Trump on 41%. However, the betting markets such as betfair are signaling that the Trump campaign that is in full meltdown mode. For instance just prior to the 1st Presidential debate Trump had rallied to his best standing of 2.88, immediately following the 1st debate that had widened to 3.35, and peaking at 4.05 just prior to the VP debate. Post the VP debate the odds had marginally shifted in Trumps favour by falling to 3.80. But now after the leaked audio tape, all that hard work has been undone sending Trump's betfair price to currently stand at 5.7 against Hillary on 1.26.

US Presidential Election 2016 Betfair Market

Date Time (BST) Hillary Trump Comments
25th Sept   1.58 3.05 Trending in Trumps favour
27th Sept 2am 1.57 2.88 Trump peaks just prior to the start of the 1st debate
27th Sept 4am 1.44 3.35 Just after the 1st debate confirming Trump lost.
30th Sept 3am 1.45 3.45 Odds continuing to move against Trump election win
30th Sept 9pm 1.39 3.75 Accelerating meltdown of Trump odds
1st Oct 2pm 1.37 3.85 Still little sign of Trump recovery
4th Oct 9pm 1.35 4.05 Trump continues losing trend
5th Oct 5am 1.36 3.90 Pence wins VP debate
7th Oct 5pm 1.38 3.8 Trump recovery continues
8th Oct 12pm 1.32 4.8 Effect of leaked audio tape of Trump Groping women
9th Oct 8pm 1.25 5.7 Trump campaign in free fall

So going into the second debate Trump now literally has nothing to lose so we can see him come out all guns blazing which at the very least ensures it will be very, very entertaining to watch and give much material for the satirists. Though whether it will work or not we will find out in the betting markets shortly after the debate for Trump currently has a huge mountain to climb.

In my most recent video analysis I gave several suggestions of what Trump could do to reverse his losing streak going into the second debate and where I warned of his achilles heel of his tax returns and the Trump organisation that lacked financial transparency which if revealed could blow his chances of winning the election as illustrated by the subsequent NYT story. Whilst step 2 was to stop attacking women and minorities which the audio tape leak worsens his standing in respect of.

For the reality of what a a now diminishing chances of a Trump Presidency would actually look like see -

My forecast of several weeks ago concluded who most probably would win the election to become the next US President, which I said I would revisit closer to election day, and which given what has subsequently coming to pass I will now definitely be doing so.
