Donald Trump leads presidential election polls

With the Presidential Election about a year away, the Republicans and Democrats are fighting to fill in the position. But one candidate stands out more than any other candidate in the history of the United States: Donald Trump.

Donald Trump is the leading candidate in the election as of right now. According to an article by Steve Benen on, “The latest Monmouth poll was released yesterday: Donald Trump: 32% (up from 26% in a Monmouth poll in November). Ted Cruz: 14% (up from 9%).” This shows how dominate Trump is during his campaign.

Trump has gotten a lot of attention from the media during his campaign due to the many controversial things he has said. According to an article on by Jeremy Diamond, a campaign press release said, “Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our county’s representatives figure out what is going on.”

“I think Donald Trump would be a strong leader and he has a lot of support because people are fed up with the government not getting anything done,” said Austin Lehnert. “It’s about time we have a conservative leader who doesn’t beat around the bush.”

I think Trump would be a greater because he has great experience with business, considering he is the chairman and president of The Trump Organization, which is a billion dollar company. He is not afraid to act upon radical Islamic terrorism, and will hopefully put an end to terrorist groups like ISIS.
