Regarding the housing discrimination case, the whole "I settled the lawsuit without admitting guilt" line I think hurt him. It's not like I'd vote for him anyway, but it made me (and I'm assuming some others) think of the powerful (like banking executives) dodging justice. It does send the (very true) message that a lot of federal cases against corporations fail, but it also made him look like part of the problem, rather than someone who can bring a solution.
He didn't really say that he didn't discriminate, just that he found a not-too-bad legal outcome.
I suspect the "I didn't pay any taxes because I'm smart" line gave him all the charm and grace of Leona Helmsley in the eyes of average people. That's a line for getting people to enroll in real estate classes at Trump "University", not something you say to voters.
