Ever since Donald Trump has entered the presidential race there seems to be a renewed interest in politics. Over the past 8 years under President Obama and former President Bush I feel like people have distanced themselves from politics. Ever since Businessman and billionaire Donald Trump has entered the crowded GOP field I believe more people have started watching politics. This raises a question, because what all of a sudden has changed? There are some new faces in this years race such as Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Scott walker. But at the same time there are some familiar faces such as Rand Paul, Rick Perry, and think back a few year Mike Huckabee. I think some people have become more interested because of guys like Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio and their willingness to fighting against the Washington establishment. I also think they seem to speak more for the people of their respected areas which could possibly be why there is a renewed interest in their favor.
I believe however it is because of the front runner in the majority of major polls Donald Trump. This is a man that has been on every major news network multiple times over the past two months. He has been extremely vocal about issues with border control, illegal immigrants, and sanctuary cities. He has ruffled some feather so to speak, not holding back from offending anyone and being what the left likes to call politically incorrect. The question now becomes why has he soared to the top of almost every major poll? I believe it’s because he speaks for the people, somewhat like Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio but in a different way. The average person isn’t politically correct like the left expects us to be so to have someone willing to stand up and say what most people are thinking brings them hope. He is also not a politician he is a businessman who sees where our country is going and thinks he can fix it.
He is unlike anyone else in the field, he has no experience with politics or being involved with the Washington establishment which gives him a different perspective on things. He has gained support because of his willingness to stand up against the mainstream media and fight for what the people believe. With the first Republican debate coming up it’s needless to say that it is going to be interesting with a person like Donald Trump in the field. This Republican debate will be like none other in history with 16 republican candidates in the field along with two guys who have no political record in Donald Trump and Ben Carson. I would advise everyone to tune in on August 6th for the first republican debate that is assured to be entertaining for everyone.
