Is it the end of days for Speaker Mattiello?

Is the  "death watch" on in Cranston where Speaker Nick Mattiello is clinging to his political life by a weak thread?  2016 is the year of the "angry voter" and the Speaker is at the top of the Rhode Island hit-list. Insiders concede there is little to nothing Mattiello can do to stop the wave of discontent that is crashing down all around him. He has watched his leadership team go down in flames and now he is cornered like a rat on a sinking ship. " I almost feel bad for him," said one Democrat rep. " He seems to know it is over and he is now just going through the motions." Some voters claim stories of "gleefully" slamming the door on anyone connected to the Mattiello campaign. Tough to brag about accomplishments when you pushed the tolls and have an FBI investigation taking place on your top people. The Speaker even failed to "properly interfere" with the GOP primary, by not getting enough friends to cross-over and vote.  He has money and a top political team ( Doyle and Britt), but will it be enough to save him?
