WNU Editor: Went to bed after listening to Donald Trump's speech on Youtube .... and when I woke up this morning I said to myself that many pundits in the media are going to be overwhelmingly negative. I have just finished reading about 10 reviews and scanned the titles on about 20 others .... and yup .... overwhelmingly negative. This is an election that is going to shape up like this .... like 1980 when Reagan went against Carter .... if you have done well in the past few years you will vote for Hillary Clinton, if you have not, you will vote for Donald Trump. This is still Hillary Clinton's election to lose, but the trend is going against her.
Update: An indication on what are the American people thinking (from Reuters/CNN) .... A CNN snap poll of viewers of the speech said 57 percent had a "very positive reaction" to the address and 18 percent a somewhat positive reaction, while 24 percent said it had a negative effect.
