The Washington D.C. establishment and mainstream media political consensus are experiencing the emerging fury of Americans fuming with their dishonest agendas. Out of 507 candidates who have filed to run for president, each brings a wide array of topics to the race. But immigration leaped over all, including both the Democrat and Republican platform productions, to become the most volatile issue in the 2016 presidential race.
According to the Gravis Marketing poll, with a 2% margin of error, Donald Trump leads the GOP candidates with 40.1% of the respondents in favor of him. Ben Carson jumped up by 7 points to come in second place at a distant 13%. Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz are almost tied for third place. Carly Fiorina has surpassed the eleven remaining top candidates over 5%.
The word “liar” comes up more frequently than any other to describe Hillary Clinton according to a poll of voters by Quinnipiac University. Clinton has experienced a 10 point drop recently and it’s little wonder when the other most frequent words used to describe her are “dishonest,” “untrustworthy,” and “criminal.”
Trump has done more to raise issues that are most important to citizens than candidates from either party. Events such as the killing of Kathryn Steinle by illegal immigrant in San Francisco, a sanctuary city that shields aliens who are in the United States unlawfully, and the intentional build-up of Muslim influence in the Obama government offices and affairs have helped Trump. Perhaps, his biggest unrecognized achievement is that Trump is whipping all candidates on both sides of the aisle in positive Internet social media mentions. Mainstream media can’t control that.
Like a soldier for truth, Trump continues to march forward beating the odds stacked against him by the fierce might of mainstream media, political parties, and critics. Yet, with several weeks of constant bashing and predictions he would soon lose his steam in the race for the Republican nomination for president, Trump’s momentum continues according to the latest polls. Hints have been coming out that his next big push could make the IRS and taxing system another gigantic issue, especially if Trump begins talking up the fair tax opportunities.
Each time the media, critics and Hollywood liberal stars predict Trump’s demise, he proves them wrong. Even the City of Mobile, Alabama was shocked when they confirmed that Trumps visit to the Ladd-Peebles Stadium totaled 30,000 people in the crowd.
“It was one of the greatest events Mobile ever put on aside from Mardi Gras,” said Colby Cooper, Mayor Sandy Stimpson’s chief of staff.
Shooting down any politically correct missiles fired his way, Trump will not budge to the media, as shown in the case of Univision’s Jorge Ramos, who daughter works for Hillary Clinton, by having the activist temporarily escorted out of a press conference. When Trump realized that the Fox News anchors went straight for his jugular at the onset of the first televised presidential candidate debate, he didn’t back down.
Trump’s recent announcement from his Twitter account exploded across the Internet indicating that Roger Ailes, the president of Fox News, and chairman of the Fox Television Stations Group, called him to assure that he would be treated fairly on Fox News, after the controversy of the first televised debate.
“Donald Trump and I spoke today,” Ailes stated in the memo released to news media. “We discussed our concerns, and I again expressed my confidence in Megyn Kelly. She is a brilliant journalist and I support her 100 percent.”
“I assured him that we will continue to cover this campaign with fairness & balance,” Ailes continued. “We had a blunt but cordial conversation and the air has been cleared.”
National media began clamoring for Trump to appear on their programs. He visited CNN’s “State of the Union,” NBC’s “Meet the Press,” CBS’ “Face the Nation,” MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and ABC’s “This Week” during a three-day weekend after the debate.
Trump turned away a question by MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” over whether he’d talked to anybody at Fox News after their Thursday night debate moderators went straight for him in an effort to many as an attempt to single him out. Trump asserted that Fox network does not treats him well.
For over a month of hostile media coverage, with intense persistence that his campaign was breaking up, left Trump with a commanding lead over other Republican candidates. All polls are showing similar results, with most giving Trump near 40% favorite, followed by Ben Carson and Ted Cruz 12% and 11% respectively. Carly Fiorina, who was not in the prime-time debate is close to being tied with Marco Rubio over the 5% range, according to the Analytics Unit of NBC News and the University of Pennsylvania’s Program on Opinion Research and Election Studies.
“I’ve been challenged by so many people, and I don’t frankly have time for total political correctness,” Trump message was music to millions of Americans during the debate. “And to be honest with you, this country doesn’t have time either. This country is in big trouble. We don’t win anymore. We lose to China. We lose to Mexico both in trade and at the border. We lose to everybody.”
“And frankly, what I say, and oftentimes it’s fun, it’s kidding,” Trump added. “We have a good time. What I say is what I say. And honestly Megyn, if you don’t like it, I’m sorry. I’ve been very nice to you, although I could probably maybe not be, based on the way you have treated me. But I wouldn’t do that.”
One of the most surprising results of the first debate received little media attention. Most college students think Trump won the first debate. With a margin of error at 4 percent, a poll released from Chegg, an online textbook and rental company indicates 26% of college-bound students is the leading candidate. Out of the Republican identified students, 26% think the GOP should seriously consider him as a legitimate candidate and provide the respect they give the others.
