As we inch closer to the 2016 elections one thing is becoming quite apparent: Donal Trump does not appear to be going anywhere soon. Now that can be taken a number of ways, depending which side of the fence you are on. If you support Trump, you may be both surprised and excited that his numbers continue to climb even after he puts his foot in his mouth over and over again. Those who oppose the Donald feel he has zero chance based on these five reasons Donald Trump will not win elections.
1. Spending the Money
Each time you hear about Donald Trump in the news you hear his name accompanied by the word billionaire and the phrase “vowing to self-finance.” There is no disputing the fact that Donald Trump is a very wealthy man. What is in dispute, however, is the fact that to date he has not put his money where his mouth is. Although he reportedly has over $300 million dollars in cash at the ready, there is no proof that today or going forward he plans on spending even a fraction of that money to fund his campaign. Despite Trump saying numerous times that he is prepared to spend his personal wealth, history has shown that in fact he has amassed his fortune off the backs of other people’s money. While risking only a small portion of his own money, he was able to expand his income by risking the money of others. One only need take a close look at the Bush campaign to see that Jeb has raised over $100 million dollars already and plans to deploy it very soon. This could in fact become a very big deal as things begin to ramp up in early 2016.
2. The Real Donald Trump
One of the reasons that Trump has growing numbers this year is the fact his marketing tactics are aimed at manipulating low-information voters. These voters do not follow politics closely; they are merely fed up with the way things are with government and looking for a change. Trump has not only heard those voices, he has made them his rallying cry. He promises to not only change the way the government operates, he promises to do the things that most politicians are afraid to do.
