Everything the GOP front-runner sets his sights on doing he does. He’s boastful, very proud, and honest. I am speaking about Donald Trump. His big time presence has always been there, but added to the political mix, and he’s blown the roof off the house.
More people have voted in the Republican primaries than ever before, and that’s due to the NY businessman. No other politician could have pulled this off and will not ever do it again. Trump has been able to shake up the nation with straight talk with big time promises on issues that affect each and every American’s life.
Trump has every right to be proud of this achievement, and if this were the Democratic party, they would be leaping for joy. But the Republican party big wigs are trying to destroy his chances of winning the nomination. I guess they feel they can’t control him, so they have to do the next best thing, and that is to destroy his credibility.
From New York Post:
After convincing victories in Tuesday’s primaries in five East Coast states, Trump has roughly 10.1 million votes, about 200,000 more than Mitt Romney got during the entire 2012 primary campaign.
And with the primaries ahead — including in populous states such as California, New Jersey and Indiana — the former “Apprentice” reality TV star should easily break the modern record of 10.8 million held by George W. Bush in 2000, according to blogger Eric Ostermeier, a political science professor at the University of Minnesota.
“In an election cycle with a high Republican turnout, his numbers are rising, even more so now that there’s only three candidates” left in the GOP race, he said.
The reasons include a combination of Trump’s celebrity, media exposure and higher-than-usual interest in his over-the-top candidacy, Ostermeier said.
The numbers-crunching blogger uses figures compiled by Congressional Quarterly that differ from those compiled by other groups, some of which say Bush got as many as 12 million votes in the 2000 primaries.
