    What makes Donald Trump so Popular?

    He can call people names, get in a fight with the Pope, spell words wrong on Twitter... yet he only gets more popular, why do you think that is?
    Do people truly feel he is more qualified than the two 1st term Senators Cruz and Rubio?
    Do people want an outsider, someone not beholden to the Washington establishment and elites?
    Do people like his aggression and take no prisoners attitude?
    Do they feel he is talking about the real issues, China trade deficit, NAFTA, CAFTA, etc.?

    The simple answer is that the other candidates are so boring, and playing the same old game. This is a new century and last centuries game didn't do well this century.

    Trump has spiced up the old game, and people are intrigued.

    The left has silenced moderate debate by labeling anything other than lockstep agreement "hate", namecalling if not online mobbing or calling for the job loss of anyone who doesn't totally agree.
    When the moderates are silenced, only the more radical fringe is able and willing to speak out - hence the more audacious Trump, because everyone else was silenced by calls of hater, racist, bigot, etc.
