Fox News Issues Dire Warning for Trump

"I actually think I'm doing good, you're there, you've seen them; nobody's ever had crowds like this," Donald Trump told Fox News Tuesday, despite plummeting poll numbers, a major campaign shake-up and Clinton leading in several swing states.

In Virginia, Clinton leads Trump 46-39% among likely voters, and in Florida, the two are pulling similar numbers with Clinton on top at 48-39%. 

When asked if it's possible to change the pattern, Fox News politcal analyst and Washington Times editor Monica Crowley answered:

"It is possible to turn it around, but time is getting very short. If these are the poll numbers we have, say, a month from now, in mid-September, then Donald Trump is in a world of pain." 

The right-leaning Wall Street Journal issued a similar statement and timeline earlier this week.
