After the massive success of the Republican National Convention, people are talking.
They are talking about the glowing speeches from notable conservative leaders, preachers, and politicians. They are talking about the graceful and powerful messages from people like Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump.
They are also talking about the powerful keynote speech from Republican nominee Donald Trump.
His unapologetic speech, that outlined America’s problems and how he can fix them, was watched by millions around the world. You can bet our enemies and rivals overseas were watching, praying that Trump doesn’t become the next President.
Despite the claims from the left that the convention would be a disaster, it was anything but. The massive crowds of protestors never showed up. The few disruptions from petty liberal celebrities ended quickly. Americans responded to Trump’s speech positively, claiming he spoke what they were all feeling.
Compare that to the disaster that is this week’s Democratic Convention.
Now we’re learning that Donald Trump’s numbers are quickly outpacing Clinton’s.
Donald Trump comes out of his convention ahead of Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House, topping her 44% to 39% in a four-way matchup including Gary Johnson (9%) and Jill Stein (3%) and by three points in a two-way head-to-head, 48% to 45%. That latter finding represents a 6-point convention bounce for Trump, which are traditionally measured in two-way matchups.
Even CNN, a grossly biased and inaccurate news outlet, has to admit Trump is leading. This after months of pulling ahead of Hillary in key states (despite Clinton spending more money on ads). CNN calls it a “bounce,” meaning it’s only a temporary increase after the convention.
But considering his growing momentum and the crisis occurring in Philadelphia, I doubt very much this is simply a bounce. It’s unlikely Hillary will get any kind of boost like this come next week, after the DNC.
This is a clear sign that the new Republican Party, rallying behind an outsider like Trump, is gaining momentum. Americans of all stripes have grown tired of insider politics. They have become disillusioned and bitter over Obama’s empty promises. Promises that never were fulfilled. They’re ready for real leadership; someone who won’t lie to them, but will get things done.
Americans are seeing that to be Donald Trump.
