Also according to the poll, 64 percent of Americans have a negative view of Trump. Should Donald Trump decide to run and win the GOP nomination, he will have work to change his public perception after playing to his base by questioning Obama’s citizenship and credentials. This calculated move has yielded results in getting support from Republicans. Republicans are looking for a candidate that is willing to challenge and fight Obama. Trump fits the bill.
According to Trump, he is Obama’s worst nightmare:
Trump’s next major move will likely be to make his official announcement to run and then turn to more substantial issues from a conservative position. He will stress the economy, jobs, and foreign trade policy.
He will likely conservatively support more controversial issues by taking the position that it is not a Federal, but issues of State’s rights.
If jobs and the economy continue to falter and Trump can survive the way of media criticism he will no doubt attract, being branded an outsider and not a career politician could benefit him in the general election.
