|Master of the Game - The Trump Card|
It's quite interesting seeing a candidate successfully taking on the Left-wing media and winning. Needless to say, every major media outlet in the Western world is branding Trump a 'fascist' - and yet he keeps prevailing in the polls. He's loud, he's proud, and the more the Left-dominated media attack him, the more that people see him as an underdog champion taking on the establishment.
What's very interesting is how cannily Trump has managed to exploit the media in achieving political poll gains with minimal expenditure of money. In a political system which has come to be dominated by rich Political Action Committees (PACs) which hand out precious funds needed to buy political campaign advertising, Trump has managed to circumvent all of that simply by dominating the headlines with his non-stop hard-charging attention-grabbing style. In this sense, he has become a clever disrupter of the established big-money dynamics which have thusfar dominated US politics. He certainly deserves credit for his unorthodox out-of-the-box thinking.
Trump, on the other hand, has spent a mere $216,000 on paid campaign commercials (just on radio ads, and less than 1 percent of Team Bush’s outlay), but has managed to increase his first-place lead to an average of 29.3 percent in national polls—14 points ahead of his nearest rival, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
