Why America Is Behind Donald Trump For President

While it came as a surprise to many that Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump surged to the lead in polls, it was commonly thought that Trump, who has no political background, would quickly fall away as America’s favorite candidate.

Now three months into the race, Donald Trump has not only managed to hang on to the presidential candidacy, but he has also maintained his lead in the GOP polls. Though Trump’s numbers have slipped slightly following the second Republican debate, The Donald still presides as the poll leader, followed by Dr. Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina.

The fact that Donald Trump is not a career politician has not hurt his candidacy at all. In fact, it seems to have buffered his popularity. Americans are sick and tired of politicians’ half-truths and lies, manipulation, and corrupt ways. Donald Trump is different, and that alone makes him desirable.

Trump differs in many ways from career politicians: he has no desire to be politically correct; he says what he means and stands by his words no matter how much controversy they cause; he supports his campaign with his own money, which means he has no obligations towards people or groups who have donated to his cause. Donald Trump’s campaign slogan, Make America Great Again, hits the hearts of the American people who remember better times, better economy, and better moral values.

NBC News addressed the questions “Does Donald Trump really want to be President?” and “When is he going to drop out?” The news site came to the conclusion that Trump is certainly serious about his presidential candidacy, as proven by his busy campaign schedule, which encompasses Waterloo, Iowa, Las Vegas, Nevada, and Atlanta this week.

His campaign staff also points to the serious nature of Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy. Campaign manager Corey Lewandowski fully expects The Donald to continue his lead over the other GOP hopefuls. The classic Donald Trump arrogance seems to flow through his victorious prediction.

“Mr. Trump will be on the ballot in every state.”

As for dropping out, Donald Trump has said he would make an exit if his numbers tank, but for now, he is riding high.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Donald Trump shares his thoughts regarding the upcoming presidential battle.

“If you don’t win, what have I done? I’ve wasted time. I want to make America great again, and you can’t do that if you come in a close second.”

Going forward, Trump plans to focus on reforms for the Department of Veteran Affairs and on trade, specifically with “China’s currency manipulations.” Donald has written a book entitled Crippled America, which will soon be available for sale.

Donald is bringing his wife, Melania Trump, as well as daughter Ivanka, into the spotlight to address women’s health issues. Television ads are also in the future. Though he set aside $20 million through September for advertising, Trump has had so much publicity he has not needed to advertise, leaving the TV fund virtually untouched.

“It’s been all Trump, all the time… If you had an ad, people would OD.”

Far from the mainstream mud-slinging ads we are used to, Donald Trump says his spots will not be traditional. Exactly what that encompasses, however, he did not say.

One thing is for certain: At least for now, Donald Trump is enjoying the view from the top and fully expects to see this journey through to the end.
