With two volatile presidential candidates, anything can happen before the election Nov. 8, but after the revelation Sunday of Donald Trump’s business non-acumen and his apparent non-payment of federal taxes for years, can we declare his candidacy definitively dead?
I ask not from insensate joy at the now likely election of Hillary Clinton, but rather from a realist’s assessment that Mr. Trump has now so seriously offended or disappointed so many voters that he could not possibly win, even against the sometimes feckless Ms. Clinton.
