"Ahead" is a little misleading. Trump has 24 points in the latest polls vs. 12 for second place Scott Walker. This isn't a majority, it's just the biggest in a crowded field.

I'd bet money that he never gets past 30%, and that his latest 15 minutes is about over.

It also wouldn't surprise me if most of his polling support is among political cartoonists and late-night tv show comics.

Maybe so, but the vein of frustration with the general state of things he's tapping into is very real. Doesn't matter how shallow his credible and applicable qualifications for the office. The current office holder was hired the same way. The 4th estate has become too much of a player in this whole party. Additionally, who is it that keeps them in business? Couldn't be the electorate could it? People still have the power. If we could only move past the grievance; past the soothe me now with gratification cult of personality and entertainment ...Otherwise and so fourth...

This just goes back to the assumption that rich people are smart. The old "If you're so smart, why ain't you rich?" joke really rings true with a lot of people. See also: Ross Perot.
Ross Perot: "I got 3 Billion dollars!*"
Don Trump: “I’m really rich!” 
 
 
*Paraphrase because I can't find the quote on Perot, but Trump did say that.

What % of the businesses he's owned is that?I'd say he's just a tad more successful than you or I.

 And this is how much attention I pay or care-in God's honest truth,I don't even know what party he belongs to.I assume it has to be the Republicans but none of it really matters.

Whoever the next President is going to be was determined about 5 years ago,and there isn't anything anyone can do about it except beat their fellow victims of a failed system up.

 And that helps.

However,Trump has a history of success and economic knowledge vs. the current failed POTUS.That is an equation that is so 1 sided and imbalanced it almost leads to the implosion of the universe.

 Not that I'd vote for either(or any) one.I learned my lesson in 2008.Thank God I will soon be able to put that horrible mistake behind me and try to forgive myself for my idiocy.

 It's not worth it and "they" have electronic voting anyway.

100% of the country could vote for somebody and any guy would win if that's what the "Powers that be" wanted.

To think otherwise is infantile.

Using the gas to go vote in a pre determined election is a win for the energy companies.

It's always just name recognition that wins the early polls.
