Donald Trump defeated sixteen other candidates in order to win the Republican nomination. Hillary Clinton struggled for months to hold off a Bernie Sanders insurgency. Though she had been convincingly ahead in polls in the weeks after the Democratic National Convention in July, that lead has been slipping into the single digits in most battleground state and national polls.
As someone who is trained in cognitive science and anthropology, and studies the fit or mismatch between leaders and the cultural context they exist in, I think it's not informative to think about whether Trump is a brain or not. It's more instructive to view Trump as doing what we all do -- he's being himself.
