Trump

He's leading by a large margin without spending any money on TV, etc.

No wonder those people hate him.

He makes up for it tenfold by being controversial and finding his way on O'Reilly, MSNBC Morning Joe, every single weekend news show, Fox and Friends, Saturday Night Live, etc etc - - TV rating have pave his way to getting in the living rooms of the American voter.

Having you own airplanes, helicopters, payrolled staff members to work your campaign helps a ton as well as name recognition from a reality TV show.

I hope it doesn't mean only people wealthy enough to afford their own airplanes, helicopters, etc will be able to run for President.

When's the last time an 'average Joe' got a nomination?

I hope that someone with superpowers will not be discouraged either. Think of how much better it would be if the president could fly without Airforce One.

Having you own airplanes, helicopters, payrolled staff members to work your campaign helps a ton as well as name recognition from a reality TV show.

Trump's campaign shows the American people that he is well organized, and that organization will be the catalyst to get this country back on track.
A candidate who follows the rule," plan your work, and work your plan", is proving to be the right way to handle the campaign.
Naturally as president the American people can rest assured this same tactic will be used in the white house.

True, Trump is shaking up the political establishment, and he is also shaking up the American people to the fact our country is headed for the toilet.
If we don't get our act together, and fast, it may be disastrous in the not to distant future.
It's about time we have someone with the balls to stand up and face the issues head on.

Bob.

Sometimes you can't always have Mr. Right.
Sometimes you have to settle for Mr. Right Now.

Many people look for a president(or any leader) that is the whole package and will solve every problem and issue like magic. It's just not realistic.
At this point I think we need someone that can address the immediate severe issues first and then we can worry about the "little stuff".

In his company, he's king. But POTUS is no monarchy.

Some of those issues have nuclear weapons and some of those issues think life on Earth has zero value so would quite happily engage in mutual annihilation.

Well, it doesn't happen anymore but they don't all have their own airplanes and Trump's level of wealth either.
