Seeds: If you were to watch any news show lately, you would probably hear something about Sir Donald’s outrageous comments about well… anything that breathes. However, while it is true that there are a plethora of articles in defiance of Trump’s statements, and a large social media presence essentially making fun of the political figure i.e. @Donald Purrump #TrumpYourCat, he has an overwhelming amount of support in the polls. Trump’s lead has continuously astounded us all, making one wonder: how can such a loud-mouth candidate be gaining so much support? Well, you would have to look at the core of the issue to find out… (pun intended).
Core: Trump’s candidacy as a whole has begun to change the entire political landscape of elections in America. His disregard for all that is “politically correct” and his lack of financial dependence upon Super PACs has allowed him to answer to no man and to run a successful anti-establishment campaign. Trump’s defiance of political norms is what has attracted many of his supporters. He does not function as traditional politicians have in the past.
Skin: A businessman first and foremost, Trump knows how to market himself and maintain a consistent media presence, even if he offends millions of people in the process. This may serve as an explanation for his support; people seem to, dare I say, appreciate Trump’s candidness.
Leaves: Whether he can be taken seriously as a President (especially by international powers) and if his plans for the nation i.e. solve the problem of immigration by “building a wall” are actually substantial at all is for you to decide.
Food for thought: Do you think he will get the Republican nomination? Do you think he has substantial plans for our future? Do you think he is gaining support due to the fact that he is not a traditional politician? Tell us what you think.
