And Trump on Sunday — for the first time in more than four months — did not appear on or call into any news program, leaving a vacuum that allowed the political narrative to shift from that of a campaign in disarray to one getting its act together.
“Lying low for a few days might play to his advantage to get his campaign organized and focused,” Republican strategist Ron Bonjean said.
And while his GOP rivals in New York are scrambling to pick at Trump’s massive home state advantage, Bonjean said the real estate mogul “can only go down.”
“If he were just to stop talking right now until the New York primary, he would probably win it hands down. The danger for Trump is he could talk himself out of delegates,” Bonjean said.
