    Why is Donald Trump so popular with the masses, and what is the secret to his Success?

    I think that the presidents of late have not been that different from each other, either side. I think that the promises of politicians are now being seen perfectly well. I think we need to change things. We are just in a space that where a man from the business world is better than a man born and raised to be a politician.
    Our incredible ability to see things we could not see before is changing the spectrum in politics. Information is just too much at our fingertips. The mass media giants no longer get to define the narrative. So if we are looking for a secret, it is that we don't just want to see politicians taken down a notch we want to see big media taken down a notch and Trump does that.
    If I were trying to negotiate a deal. The last thing I want on the opposing side is a wild card. And it is the first thing I want on my side. A variable not a constant.
    I don't want my opponents to know exactly what I want or what I will do to get it. Most people get that and are wanting to get a variable into the White House.
    And from what I can tell he is not beholding to any special interest groups of PACs. Wow, wouldn't that be nice in the President. He could actually do things independently.

      He can't budge without congress. Or will he be a tyrant?

    While he has some good ideas, I haven't heard enough specifics on how he will put them into action (like some of the other candidates). I think lots of folks like him because he says what others are afraid to. I think he's taken that too far however, a large number of people don't. I also see that he is tapping into the fears of some and also tuning into a very specific type and number of people who feel entitled to certain things not unlike many other presidential candidates. The bottom line for me is that I do not like him and do not think his manner of speech and temper are appropriate or useful to represent our country but we will all have our chances to cast our votes.

    He is able and willing to speak the truth, such as opposition to illegal immigration is support for the law not racism.

    Donald Trump is a genius with playing on people's deepest fears and anxieties. He offers to restore to them that which is not restorable, the America of Ozzie and Harriet. Most of Trumps' followers are older and when geriatric people talk about change, it is change backwards. It is neither palatable nor realistic, but as quoted in Star Wars ' the Farce has always had a  profound effect on the feeble minded'...

    Donald Trump is not playing the political game.  He is forthright in saying what needs to be implemented & improved upon in America.  He is saying what the majority of Americans are thinking but aren't in his position to implement.  Many Americans are attracted to Mr. Trump because he is not part of the well-controlled political machine.  He is sincere in what he says & believe. 

    Many Americans like Donald Trump because he has real world credibility.  He works in the real world.  He has business expertise, having created & ran businesses.  The average politician has not had real jobs but only political ones.  They have no real world credibility.  The American people are sick & weary of the merry-go-round political game.  They also don't respect politicians as they have no real world credibility.  They feel that politicians really don't have the capacity to deal with everyday problems as the latter never had to deal with them.  They believe that Mr. Trump has a well-earned authenticity among them as he have dealt & surmounted real world issues which the have done even though on a much smaller scale than his. 

    Many Americans like him because he is unafraid to back down from controversial issues such as immigration & terrorism.  Many politicians are quite evasive regarding these two issues fearing losing potential voters so they say what the public & the powers that be wants them to say.  Mr. Trump believes in saying speaking the truth & people see this, further respecting him for it.

    When was the last presidential election that wasn't forcing voters to choose between the lesser of two evils. Well this year is no exception.

    The democrats and the republicans have brought down the US in a decline starting in the 70s. The country is still declining, and the last 7 years didn't help stop the decline.

    Remember, it was the experienced professional politicians that ran the country for the last one hundred years, and today is the result. Both parties had various levels of control over the government and yet here we are in a decline.

    We have been in wars, almost on a continual basis since WWII, and we lost every single one of them. Winning a war should mean that the issues have been resolved, but what we have seen is a deferment of wars.

    Even WWII failed, when you look at Eastern Europe being controlled by the NAZIS at the beginning and the USSR at the end of the war. How is that a win?

    Every presidential election has promise after promise by both parties, and yet these promises are hardly ever kept, and new promises are substituted for the unkept ones during reelection.

    So, Trump appears to straddle the party lines, and alludes to the possibility of a new political paradigm.

    The rest of the candidates for the most part keep playing the same old song. Both parties blame the other party for not saving the US, and bringing prosperity back to the country.

    Last year we saw the failure of the three branches of government which the founders thought would protect the people and the country from being taken advantage of by the government.

    The president became the de facto legislative branch, the SC became the political de facto congress, and congress came to a stand still, much like rush hour in a large city.

    Trump is the only candidate that is broaching, or trying to broach the real issues into the campaign.

    And everyone else seems to be funded by third party, and political party interests. That, make no mistake, is intended to buy presidential favors.

    People, especially voters should be taking the issues and comparing the positions of the presidential candidate instead of doing the personal attacks. There are many issues that aren't even being broached during the presidential campaign because of the tradition of tossing those fowl smelling Red Herrings into the arena.

    These fish have been in every presidential election for the last one hundred years, and they have prevented the voters from discussing the real issues, and not those

      And sometimes I wonder if it isn't time for a real and viable Third Party or Fourth Party candidate...If the system keeps not working, aren't we just practicing the definition of insanity - repeating the same mistake over and over.

      I think it is a synonym for insanity.
