THESE DAYS, DONALD Trump resembles a classic character from old cartoons: the bumbling do-it-yourselfer who has painted himself into a corner. After months on the stump, the GOP nominee now finds himself confined by his own rhetoric in a narrow Electoral College nook. To put it in Trumpian terms, he’s built a wall — a wall that separates him from the voters he needs to win in November. And who’s paying for it? Republicans are about to. And not just in their third successive presidential election loss, but in the critical political currency of Senate and House seats as well.
