Experts have stressed that an independent Trump candidacy could spell disaster for Republicans because such a move could split the GOP vote and hand election victory to likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
President Barack Obama, for example, won women by 11 percentage points over Republican Mitt Romney in 2012, according to exit polls.
During a press conference with reporters before the event, Trump couched his issues with Mexico in relation to an institution he knew his audience would respond to, the auto industry, the Detroit News reported. He said, it’s the greatest thing that’s ever happened to him.
He hasn’t been interviewed by anyone on the channel since Thursday night.
“The Donald Trump radio ad is a powerful indictment of the GOP”, said Bob Meahgan, a political analyst based in Los Angeles. “His word is always good!”
“Our party has some work to do”, said Katie Packer Gage, a former Romney aide who leads a political firm that helps Republicans connect with women.
The fact that Trump has emerged not only unscathed but triumphant after his subsequent and disgusting remarks about Kelly, whom he described post-debate as having “blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever”, speaks trumpets and trombones to critics’ shakers, scrapers and cowbells. Trump has stopped criticizing Kelly. The establishment’s favored candidates are too shaky and insipid to excite rank-and-file Republicans, leaving a large hole that Trump’s decisive and unapologetic personality has filled.
Previous public polls had found Carson with around 10% support, but most were released before last week’s debate. Now they get two for 2016, but pundits don’t like Trump’s business background very much.

Instead of highlighting his odd praise for the single-payer system in Canada and Scotland at the debate, Trump’s critics stigmatized him as a sexist for not bowing to the fatuous gender politics of the moment. The chatter on Twitter was equally in Trump’s favor.
“And to be honest you, this country doesn’t have time either”. “Roger was not happy”. And Fox has stopped ignoring Trump on its shows.
Maybe politicians of all stripes are a dime a dozen, and you never truly get anything different. Inside Fox, this was alarming. I said there was no excuse for President Obama calling anyone who opposes his Iranian deal the equivalent of the Iranian hardliners who are chanting “Death to America”.
The contest, featuring former “Apprentice” reality show star and real estate mogul Trump, fellow front runner Jeb Bush and eight other candidates, was heavily promoted in part because of Trump’s penchant for personal attacks and outrageous claims. “He’s upset that conservatives are mad at Fox”. He also called Ailes to complain, according to one of the sources. Both The Drudge Report and Breitbart News carried pro-Trump headlines.
