Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Jeb Bush emerged as the opening chalks at online casinos for the 2016 United States presidential election but those odds are quickly changing. Clinton has been plagued by an email scandal while Bush has seen his big money insider campaign collapse in the face of an insurgent challenge from Donald Trump, the billionaire real estate developer that has changed the expectations upside down.

Trump has insulted people with tweets, continues to troll Bush morning, noon, and night, and will call out and fight the liberal press. All of this has caused the “experts” to predict Trump’s downfall but instead with each rant, insult and outrage Trump sees his poll numbers go up.

Long time pollster Frank Luntz recently commented on how shocked he was about a recent focus group that he conducted in which Trump supporters were shown negative videos that seemed to contradict his stance as a conservative Republican. After seeing the videos the focus group had HIGHER regard for Trump than before the meeting, Luntz has warned the Republican establishment about how angry the base is and how out of touch they are. He said that he has never seen anything like it in his career that goes back to 1992 and the Ross Perot third party campaign.

Trump has been unapologetic about wanting America to be great again and promising to be “the greatest jobs president that God ever created.”

Trump is financing his own campaign to illustrate that he cannot be “bought” like the other candidates which has resonated with voters.
