Trump's constant weird statements, tweets, and gaffes are causing a crisis and meltdown inside the Republican Party that is almost unprecedented in American history.
His poll numbers are tanking, and staff members have been described as "suicidal" and looking to jump from the sinking ship. Republicans down-ticket are distancing themselves or endorsing Hillary Clinton - also an incredibly rare event in modern politics.
All this is a nice 55th Birthday for President Obama, not to mention the fact that Obama hit an all-time high on his approval ratings. And for all the Dems, the talk isn't just about taking the Senate back, but the House as well, not to mention the White House.
