Explaining Away the Trump Intervention

Rudy Giuliani explains away Donald Trump campaign intervention

With the dramatic drop of Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump (R-NY) in the post convention polls, there has been murmuring in establishment GOP circles that there ought to be an "intervention" to prevent an election day disaster.  There have even been reports that the RNC has been studying Rule 9, which establishes the procedure of replacing a national Republican candidate.

While the drop in the polls may fuel such speculation, it is typical talk during an election cycles "Silly Season" when the electorate is not focused on the campaign (with vacations, the Olympics) nor are there big events (such as the conventions or debates) looming.

A strong Trump surrogate, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, fanned the flames of this Trump intervention talk with his honest analysis of how Trump 2.0 (if it ever comes to fruition) must evolve for the general election. To do damage control, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R-NYC) tried to explain away the characterization of a Trump "intervention".
