Time to Ignore Trump

At the risk of adding to the overabundance of coverage devoted to a fringe candidate, it looks like Donald Trump's joke of a campaign is finally dead in the water. Two polls out today show that the reality TV star has lost his support among New Hampshire Republican voters. In the last poll of the state conducted at the beginning of April, Trump drew 21 percent support. Today, he only gets 8 percent and 11 percent in two different polls.

The fact that Trump's possible candidacy appears to have fallen as quickly as it initially rose shouldn't be surprising. It was always a form of theater effective at drawing attention without any actual political heft behind it. After President Obama laid birther conspiracies to rest and Trump became the butt of every joke at the White House Correspondents' Dinner this weekend, there was no other substance to anchor Trump's campaign. So once the news cycle moves away from 24/7 coverage of Osama bin Laden's death, can we all agree it is finally time to stop covering Trump?
