By the usual that voters sometimes use to guage presidential candidates, Trump in all probability shouldn’t have survived his first day within the 2016 race. “When I launched my candidacy, I was asked over and over again, ‘Well, how can you run for the presidency?” Thirty percent of respondents believe Trump will finally be selected as the Republican nominee, according to the poll released on Friday.
“We are a nation of laws”, Trump said.
Trump surged to the front of the GOP pack based on his heated rhetoric towards immigration and other issues. Surely a lot of these voters are also happy to believe that said feckless and ineffective GOP leaders want Trump to disappear, not because he risks destroying the GOP brand among Latinos but because he’d disrupt their cozy Washington arrangement in which they aren’t willing to do what it takes to stop President Barack Obama.
Mrs Clinton remains Mr Trump’s most likely opponent should he secure his party’s nomination, despite a poll on Sunday showing she has fallen 11 points behind Bernie Sanders in the crucial New Hampshire primary.

This would require collecting signatures and, in some states, perhaps technically forming a new political party.
The former secretary of state also spent part of her weekend firing back at former republican Vice President Dick Cheney over recent criticisms he lodged against the Obama administration over the nuclear arms deal it made with Iran.
Courts generally lean toward granting ballot access rather than denying it, especially in a presidential race.
Illegal immigration is the ideal summation of Trump’s unorthodox campaign. But here’s my question: How do Trump’s most fervent supporters react?
Many appear convinced that the sheer force of Trump’s personality can reverse decades of global realignment and that his pledges to rid the country of people living in the USA illegally and penalize imported goods will restore manufacturing jobs lost to China and boost an economy still scarred by the recession.
The event is exactly one week before Trump is scheduled to speak at the American Airlines Center. He can’t possibly win by coming across as just like the other hopefuls, calculated and measured and boring.
Trump – the real estate magnate whose alienated Democratic and Republican lawmakers alike – would narrowly defeat Hillary Clinton in a head-to-head matchup, 45 percent to 40 percent.
