He’s drastically down in the polls. All those clever mathematical models suggest he has about a 10 percent chance of winning. Yet he’s a fanatically competitive man, an extraordinary campaigner, and a political force that nobody quite understands. He is also a great finisher. That’s a word used in professional wrestling and in business — two worlds Trump knows — and it means an individual who tends to be at his best when it matters most.

And what about Joe Biden? His schedule in the final days is extraordinarily light for a man who is so close to being elected the leader of the free world. Yesterday Trump was in four swing states; Biden went from Delaware to Pennsylvania and back…

Trump, meanwhile, keeps flying around the country, regaling his fans, propelled by the nuclear power of his ego. He remains unlikely to win. But if the Democrats were honest — and they’re not — they would admit that Trump’s campaigning strength is making them nervous. He wants to turn this election into the greatest election comeback story ever told. He might just do it. Then again, Trump might be so high-energy, so turbulent, that the American people are just too exhausted to take him anymore. The Biden campaign must be hoping — praying even — that the more people see of their President, the less they like. That may be a gamble.
