The Houston Chronicle, which endorsed Mitt Romney in the last presidential election, endorsed Hillary Clinton. Here's why:
“These are unsettling times that require a steady hand: That’s not Donald Trump.”
Any one of Trump’s less-than-sterling qualities — his erratic temperament, his dodgy business practices, his racism, his Putin-like strongman inclinations and faux-populist demagoguery, his contempt for the rule of law, his ignorance — is enough to be disqualifying. His convention-speech comment, “I alone can fix it,” should make every American shudder. He is, we believe, a danger to the Republic.’
Who are the people who continue to support Trump for POTUS? I wonder, do they know anything about our Constitution? Do they care? Does it bother his supporters that Trump is so grossly unqualified to be president and that many, many Republicans, who love country above party, have denounced him?
Why do his supporters defend the indefensible Trump?
Trump Reeling As Clinton Gets 10 Point Democratic Convention Bounce And 15 Point Lead

A new poll taken after the Democratic convention revealed that Hillary Clinton had erased any gains that Trump made after the Republican convention, with a 10 point convention bounce and a 15 point lead.
RABA Research found:
Among likely voters, Clinton garners 46% support to Trump’s 31%. Libertarian Gary Johnson now captures 7% of the vote, while Jill Stein sits at 2%.
A RABA Research poll conducted the day after the Republican convention showed a tighter race, with Clinton at 39% and Trump at 34%. Johnson was at 8% in that survey, while Stein found 3% support.
When asked if the Democratic National Convention was a failure or success, 38% of respondents called the convention a success, while 23% dubbed it a failure. 38% of respondents said neither, or that they were not sure.
The RABA poll showed Clinton opening up a 7 point lead with men (42%-35%), a 22 point lead with women (50%-28%).
Clinton also had 14% of the Republican vote, and she led by double digits with all age groups.
The poll was a bipartisan poll that was not paid for by any candidate, party, or organization.
