The Trump camp took a tumble early this week, after parting ways with campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.

The ouster comes on the heels of another announcement from the AP, which revealed that Trump rival, Hillary Clinton, and Democratic allies will spend about $41 million on ads in several key states. 

Trump, meanwhile,  hasn't spent a dime. 

But wait, there's more. Monday, financial disclosures from the campaigns showed that Clinton outraised Trump 9-1. 

Donald J Trump has a knack for exceeding analyst expectations, but how will the billionaire fare in a fall face-off with Hillary Clinton? 

Take Two put that question to Lynn Vavreck, Professor of political science at UCLA. Vavreck also monitors political ads for Spot Check, a joint project between UCLA and Vanderbilt.
