The GOP establishment and their social media supporters are all scared of Donald Trump, as evidenced by the smears and attacks coming from all sides, including the media.
But after Trump’s massive victory in the South Carolina primary, he has a very high likelihood of taking the GOP nomination.
From Yahoo News:
Ed McMullen, one of Trump’s campaign co-chairs in South Carolina, told Yahoo News he believes the primary has now become a “single-man race,” with Trump too far beyond his top rivals — Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas — for them to catch up.
Trump didn’t just win the primary in South Carolina on Saturday. He crushed the competition, coming in over 10 points ahead of second place and carrying 44 of the state’s 46 counties.
“It’s now starting to coalesce. Republicans are starting to realize from every demographic group that this guy is Reagan-esque. He’s a serious leader and he is something different that this country needs now,” McMullen said. “It is a single-man race. They have to beat him because he has got a message that people are starting to join together for and support. And I think he will win handily as we go forward.”
It wasn’t supposed to be this way. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was the choice of many in the Republican leadership and the donor class. Bush, whose father and brother both served as president, dismissed Trump as “an entertainer.” In the early days of the campaign, Bush’s massive fundraising haul was supposed to scare away potential rivals. Instead, as Trump relished his victory on Saturday, Bush announced the suspension of his campaign. The Bush family dynasty fell.
Can Trump be stopped? Watch this video report:
Trump may not be the most eloquent speaker, but at least he says what comes to his mind on issues that the common man worries about. Trump is probably the least “harmful” compared to the other Republican candidates, who excel in using manipulative and untruthful tactics.
I respect the fact that Trump has chosen to finance his own campaign and isn’t dependent on rich donors like so many of the other candidates. He’s a man who can’t be bought — how many of the others running on either side can actually, honestly say the same?
