He’s the leader of the pack, and then some. Presidential candidate Donald Trump continues to soar in the polls much to the chagrin of his fellow Republican candidates.
Trump likes to open his mouth and often insert his foot or even both feet, but that doesn’t matter for the moment, because the New York City billionaire is sitting pretty as the favorite with 24 percent of registered Republicans and Republican-leaning independents. That is big news in Post-ABC News polls, according to the WashingtonPost.com. Trump is surging with the highest percentage and biggest lead recognized by any GOP candidate. Tne numbers reveal a sixfold increase in his support since late May.
What the heck is going on?
Is it because Trump is a fiery, popular reality TV star and seems to attract a lot of television coverage? asked by Bruce Levenson in an interview.
We are not sure, especially following the nasty comments the wealthy businessman made about US war hero John McCain and his Viet Nam War service.
Trump is like teflon. Whatever innaproporiate things his says, don’t appear to do him any irreparable damage and merely slide off his back.
He even attacked McCain for ignoring America’s many veterans:
“John McCain has not done enough for the veterans,” Trump said. “The veterans in this country are suffering. The veterans in this country are treated as third-class citizens. John McCain talks a lot, but he doesn’t do anything.”
