If Hillary Clinton loses to Donald Trump she'll have only herself to blame, writes Stuart Rothenberg in The Washington Post.

Trump's greatest advantages against Clinton, his outsider status compared to her D.C.-insider image, and the simple fact that he's not Hillary, could guide him to the White House if she isn't careful, Rothenberg wrote.

Trump, by comparison, "does not have a campaign" according to MSNBC.

Since he became the presumptive GOP nominee in May, multiple high-level staffers have come and gone, including campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.

He only began fundraising for the general-election campaign and for the Republican Party in June, when he raised a combined $51 million, trailing Clinton's $68.5 million, and far behind Mitt Romney's $106 million raised for the same period in 2012 when he was the GOP nominee, according to CBS News.

A career politician, Clinton knows how to present herself as a candidate. Questions of authenticity notwithstanding, the presumptive Democratic nominee is a seasoned veteran who stays calm, authoritative, and on message. Trump, by comparison, cannot be contained.
