PETER ALEXANDER: Just ask his opponents. Trump has been a tough candidate to pin down on policy. But highlighted by our Today town hall, he appears to be moving toward the middle, sounding strikingly more moderate on social issues. And his aides are now openly discussing how he'll adjust his image as this race goes on. 


And while Trump said he believes in raising taxes for the wealthy --


His actual tax plan released last September would cut taxes for everyone, especially the wealthy. If enacted, slashing the top income tax rate from nearly 40 percent to 25 percent.
