Has Donald Trump's luck finally run out?

After beating 16 competitors to capture the Republican presidential nomination, the reality show star seemed to disprove all conventional wisdom about how to win an election. But with a lawsuit against Trump University, racially tinged remarks he made towards a judge in the case and a hammering by Hillary Clinton in a well-received speech — Trump is having a very bad week. 

An MSNBC report described Donald Trump as "a candidate without a campaign." NBC News spoke with three Trump aides and two sources working closely with the campaign, all anonymously,  who said the candidate's lack of campaign experience, staff, and ground game are creating serious problems. The off-the-cuff style that serves Trump well at rallies and on social media is not translating to a general election strategy: "Trump does what he wants,” a source close to the campaign said.

Can the Trump campaign weather the latest string of setbacks? Or are the wheels coming off his candidacy for real?

At the same time, Republicans are falling into line behind Trump, despite his gaffes and murky financial dealings. Millions of Americans will support him no matter what. And he has proven himself adept at manipulating the media and actually gaining strength from firestorms that would have crushed any other candidate's chances.
