Does Trump Get a Second Chance?

Donald Trump’s performance in the September 26 debate was a disaster. He then extended it with behavior that reminded everyone of his post-convention antics.

The week before the debate, Trump was positioned to take his first lead in the campaign since the brief weekend between the two July conventions. Now, he is down at least 4 points nationally and behind in a host of battleground states he had moved ahead in.

The question is will the public suspend their disbelief and wait for one more performance that reassures moderate voters that he has the discipline, temperament and knowledge to be president?

Or, did the chance pass on September 26, the decision over and now it’s all counting?
