Donald Trump was on top of the GOP presidential field since the day he entered the race. He was catapulted to prominence with his promise to build a wall and nothing has seemed to completely derail his campaign since.
Trump even proclaimed at one point that he could shoot someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue and not lose any support. His words have rung sadly true as his support has remained firm from the most staunch of Trump supporters.
After he mocked a disabled reporter, referenced Megyn Kelly’s menstrual cycle, said “I like people who weren’t captured” when talking about Arizona Senator John McCain who was a prisoner of war in Vietnam, making fun of Heidi Cruz’s looks, accusing Ted Cruz’s father of being complicit in the assassination of John F. Kennedy, said on the morning of the Indiana Primary, no less, his numbers didn’t drop. The list goes on and on. On Friday, he went even further.
During an interview with Time magazine, Trump said it doesn’t matter if he is short on specifics when it comes to policy. His voters don’t care.
In regards to his failure to release specific proposals regarding his policies or plans of what he will do as president if elected, Trump said, “My voters don’t care and the public doesn’t care. They know you’re going to do a good job once you’re there.”
I seem to remember another candidate who spoke in vague generalities with no real specifics.
