On April 3, Dowd said Trump "can't win a general election for all intents and purposes." ("For all intents and purposes" is what consultants add to nothing-burger statements to make them sound weighty.)Trump won the election -- and he won it with far more electoral votes than Dowd's candidate ever got.On May 1, Dowd said, "It's going to be a men-versus-women election, unfortunately.”Trump wonAs for Trump winning the general election, Dowd declared it "unlikely."
