Instead of seeing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump acting like this.. We're likely to see more of this... The White House hopeful has shaken up his campaign staff again, hiring an executive from the conservative website Breitbart News to run his presidential bid. Karlyn Bowman of the American Enterprise Institute sees that as a sign that he'll revert back to his "old self". (SOUNDBITE) (English) KARLYN BOWMAN, ANALYST OF AMERICAN PUBLIC OPINION AND SENIOR FELLOW AT THE AMERICAN ENTERPRISE INSTITUTE, SAYING: "We're going to see with the new people in charge is that they're more likely to want Trump to be Trump and to shoot from the hip as he so frequently does." Trump finds himself trailing Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in national polls and in many battleground states. Bowman doesn't think continuing the loud, brash style that made Trump successful in the primaries is a good idea. (SOUNDBITE) (English) KARLYN BOWMAN, ANALYST OF AMERICAN PUBLIC OPINION AND SENIOR FELLOW AT THE AMERICAN ENTERPRISE INSTITUTE, SAYING: "I'm not sure for the electorate as a whole or for a winning coalition that that's the right strategy." Republicans worry that Trump may be facing a big defeat in November, a loss that could also could prove to be a huge problem for other Republican candidates.
