Is Trump the new Barry Goldwater?

A week ago, I wrote an article discussing Trump and the belief that he was a better option for Republicans than Hillary Clinton, and that he could be molded into a better candidate. In part, that article was mostly for anti-Trump Republicans and their continued public distrust and dislike of Trump. A part of me would still like to believe that Trump can be molded into a better candidate, but the question of whether or not that is capable before it's too late is one that remains up in the air.

After writing that article, I had no idea that Trump would go on a tirade attacking the heritage of the judge presiding over the Trump University case. Growing up in Texas, where there is a large Hispanic population, and also recognizing that Hispanics are America's largest minority group, I couldn't help but become uncomfortable and concerned with some of Trump's statements and how they would likely be perceived — not just by Hispanics, but other minority groups as well. And to make matters worse, Trump is now saying that a Muslim judge could be potentially biased against him, too.
