Well, let’s just cut to the chase here. The cur­rent me­dia nar­ra­tive steers Amer­i­cans to­wards the be­lief that the Repub­li­can Party is in tur­moil. “Face the Na­tion” host John Dick­er­son asked Repub­li­can Na­tional Com­mit­tee chair­man Reince Priebus point-blank whether Don­ald Trump is go­ing to win the elec­tion.

“He’s go­ing to win be­cause peo­ple in this coun­try have had enough. He’s the change agent. When it comes down to risk in this coun­try, Hil­lary Clin­ton has been tested — and she’s failed. She’s the risky can­di­date. You look at Rus­sia, the ura­nium deal, giv­ing them con­trol of 20 per­cent of the world’s ura­nium, her pock­et­ing hun­dreds of thou­sands in speeches, Rus­sian re­set, Libya. You look at Iraq and the mess that she left there. What I’m say­ing is, she was tried and tested. She failed. She’s too risky for this coun­try. That’s why she’s go­ing the lose.”

But is the Grand Old Party “100 per­cent” be­hind Mr. Trump?

“He’s the nom­i­nee of our party. Of course we’re be­hind Don­ald Trump. This is ridicu­lous, as if we wouldn’t be be­hind the nom­i­nee of the party. Of course we are,” Mr. Priebus replied.
