I don’t have to tell you. This election cycle is so bizarre! Democrats have no diversity. Republicans have all of the diversity. A self proclaimed socialist actually is a viable candidate. Republicans hating on each other. And then…there’s Donald J. Trump. He is both loved and hated on both sides of the isle. Who would have thought he would have remained number one in the polls this long? I wouldn’t have.
Listen, I have not even remotely made my decision on a candidate yet, but I can certainly see where he gets his appeal. Americans are sick of the Establishment, yes, both Democrats and Republicans in D.C. We have been been pandered to by politicians over and over and over again, while they only answer to the money. They are beholden to the ones with the biggest wallets. We aren’t stupid and Trump knows this as well.
Trump only answers to Trump. This is how you can pinpoint exactly what his next move will be. That being said, it is no wonder he is backing out of the Iowa GOP debate and holding his own Veterans event, which is sure to steal the other candidates’ thunder. His “war with Fox News” and Megyn Kelly has not only shown that he knows how to keep himself newsworthy, but also that he is in control of the media. He owns them. The question is, will this gamble pay off for the Donald?
Also, I find it very interesting that the country is so sick of political correctness that some are willing to sacrifice some of their political principles just to get someone in office that “says what they mean, and means what they say”! No sugarcoating here. You know where you stand with Trump and whether you like him or not, there is an appeal to that with many people. Does that win him the presidency? God only knows with this election! But, one thing is for sure. It will be a roller coaster of a ride.
