Donald Trump hasn’t spent a penny on advertising so far.
Donald Trump wins a huge share of the Democrats’ non-white base — 25 percent of African Americans, 31 percent of Hispanics and 41 percent of the Asian vote.
The conventional wisdom held that Trump was merely a summer fling for angry voters, a protest candidate whose insults and braggadocio would soon impose a ceiling on his support. But recent polls suggest that Trump has raised that ceiling.
A billionaire who started his campaign in June as a fringe candidate has now become the front runner. The once unthinkable notion that he could win the Republican presidential nomination no longer sounds so crazed.
As businessman Donald Trump has climbed to the top of the Republican primary polls, political junkies have gone scrambling to explain or describe the coalition of people supporting him. But the candidate has offered his own analysis — he says he is giving voice to the long-dormant "silent majority."
Lobbing rhetorical stink bombs at a large group of voters is not the normal way to get ahead in U.S. politics but Donald Trump has turned the do's and don'ts of campaigns on their head, prospering with tactics that could sink anyone else.
Donald Trump Tweeted; "Remember that I am self-funding my campaign. Hillary, Jeb and the rest are spending special interest and lobbyist money.100% CONTROLLED"
Problem is Trump hasn't spent one red cent on advertising . Not a problem for Trump but a big problem for the other Democrat and Republican candidates.
