'Yes We Khan'

Donald Trump's popularity has been badly mauled due to his public feud with Khizr Khan, and polls show him as having fallen 10 points behind Hillary Clinton:

Trump's allies and advisors are counseling him to avoid fights like this, which only play into the hands of his Democrat rivals:

While Mr Khizr Khan claims to have retreated from his public spat with Donald Trump, he still continues to parade himself in front of the media.



Needless to say, a movement has sprung up to get Khizr Khan to run for political office:

If Khan were to manage to get elected as a US Congressman, he could become the new voice for Pakistan in the US Congress:

San,
According to the Reuters and LA Times polls, Trump is within 3 points of Hillary. Trump has also been hurt more by Republicans not lining up behind him. His (R) support is around 72% whereas Hillary's (D) support is around 86%. The Khan episode has mostly faded away from public memory.
