The Republican Party is likely to move further away from Donald Trump because it is increasingly anxious over its congressional majorities.
Campaign chairman Paul Manafort, a veteran of past Republican campaigns, was brought on months ago to impose greater discipline and presidential demeanor on the bombastic billionaire. Occasionally he succeeded. But more often he didn't, and Trump has made clear he didn't care for the effort.
Now, Manafort has been elbowed aside in favor of new campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, a Republican pollster. Like Trump's first campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, Conway had not previously served in a top role in a Republican presidential campaign.
