How has Donald Trump done it? How has he cemented his place as the front runner of the Republican Party? He was dismissed as a joke. The rhetoric spewed for months was that he’s peaked and will taper off soon. As each month goes by, he gets closer to gathering the delegates he needs to be on the ballot.
News organization are going bonkers with their Trump hate in their opinions sections.
He is endlessly parodied on television. He is mocked day in and day out. He is called a racist, a misogynist, and the next coming of Adolf Hitler. His support base is said to be made up on uneducated racists. Barack Obama has come out and chatised Trump. Yet he continues to win.
The media is fueling Trump’s campaign. Their coverage of his insults and outlandish comments are endearing him to the general public. Trump’s success is an example that no publicity is bad publicity.
The hate that is thrown on Trump reminds me of the hate Obama received during his 2008 election. Barack Obama was called a Muslim. People said he was popular not because of his policies but because of the color of his skin. He was said to be the Anti-Christ.
The key to Donald Trump’s campaign is frustration with the establishment. People are pissed off. Voting for Donald Trump is giving the political system the finger. It’s why he keeps winning and winning.
Can Donald Trump win? Can he go all the way? Will he be our next president?
We will find out in November.
