Well, it’s looking like Donald Trump’s bid to become the president of the United States is over before it really got started.

Or is it?

Although several companies — NBC and Macy’s, among them — have been scrambling to cut ties with him since he stuck his foot in his mouth big time with what are being called derogatory comments about some Mexican immigrants, I wonder what the voters might be thinking?

Do some agree with him — that ‘some Mexican immigrants bring drugs and crime to the U.S. and are rapists.’ Trump made the comments during his presidential campaign kickoff speech last week.

When I spent time in Los Angeles and the San Diego areas many years ago, I was startled by the derogatory things people there were saying about Mexicans. I came away with the impression that a lot of people there resent Mexicans — and I wonder if Donald Trump is tapping into that resentment.

So, when it comes down to voting, do you think his comments will cost him, or help him?

And, is it too late for him to apologize?
