WASHINGTON (AP) — With each scripted speech, shift in policy and attempt to whitewash his past behavior, Donald Trump is brazenly betting that voters now settling on their choice for president are willing to set aside all that came before his late-in-the-campaign re-calibration.

It’s a deeply uncertain proposition given Trump’s staggeringly negative standing with most Americans.

Polls show more than half believe the Republican nominee is unqualified to be president, and is biased against women and minorities.

But his strategy doesn’t require moving huge numbers of voters.

Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton are fighting for a small sliver of undecided voters — who, in many cases, simply can’t stomach either of their choices.
