A definite change in the tone of media when discussing or referring to Donald Trump. Perhaps it’s my imagination, or failure to expand my horizons, but I sense a shift to serious consideration of the man for no good reason. Media folk note, as if a bit in shock, that Trump has a hold on some fifteen percent of citizens in a few states. But that’s the same percentage he began with.
It is not Trump who has changed. Media observers have. They now accept as given what was clear from the outset: a significant number of Americans believe that those things about Trump which I deplore are in fact his good points, his strong arguments.
