“Has ‘The Donald’ Peaked?” That’s the headline of a new national public opinion survey of Republican voters from Rasmussen Reports that was released Tuesday afternoon.

While the political media world continues to profess astonishment at Donald Trump’s rise in the polls, how about talking about the latest Republican to enter the 2016 sweepstakes? Say hello to Jim Gilmore. Jim who, you might ask? Actually, “why” might be the better adverb here. Gilmore, 65, was governor of Virginia from 1998 to 2002. (Virginia term limits governors to only one four-year term.) He also ran for president in 2007 before dropping out of the race amid a lack…
