Conventional wisdom suggests that any “generic” Republican would easily beat Hillary Clinton in November — and any other Democrat would destroy Donald Trump. But what if that’s wrong? Increasingly, the notion that Trump could actually win seems less absurd. As I write this, the election forecasting site FiveThirtyEight says that if the election were held today, he’d have close to a 47 percent chance of winning.

It’s not crazy to theorize that Trump, with all his faults, might actually be better positioned than any traditional Republican would be.
