Yes, we can now see that Trump is somewhat scared about the election's outcome. After these recent womanizing scandals, he is now aware that women will not vote for him. The women of the USA have their own woman candidate, so why should they vote for someone disrespectful of their gender? And how many women are there to vote?
Yes, Trump has started a dangerous road because people see the rhetoric he is using and think it is okay to act the same way. Children in schools pick on minorities because Trump promises to send their parents back to Mexico. He has created a toxic environment for everyone here.
Trump has not started a dangerous road because the reality is that illegal immigrants do vote, and the names of dead people are used for illicit voting purposes. The fact that the poll numbers are probably high, the fact is also that the voting process is being abused. It is time to fix it.
The Republican party is going downhill fast, but that didn't start because of Donald Trump. Trump is the logical conclusion resulting from years of dangerous beliefs held by Republicans. Trump has brought these beliefs and ideas out into the open for the whole world to see, and he has made them seem more socially acceptable, but these are not new views.
