Donald Trump for President 2016: Why interest in Jeb Bush is lower than him

Donald Trump is a man whose popularity is increasing with every passing day. The real estate mogul who was not initially an important White House hopeful has gone on to take lead over almost everyone else including the Democrat frontrunner Hillary Clinton.

Nonetheless many people are fearful that Donald Trump may be peaking far too early. The way he has taken lead over everyone including former Secretary of State and first lady Hillary Clinton in a matter of two months shows that things are turning in his favor rather impressively.

It is needless to say that air seems to be sailing in his favor and that this is going to be the reality. A latest poll conducted merely two days ago shows that Donald Trump who was not being taken very seriously till now has taken a leap forward in the past few weeks. The poll by SurveyUSA concludes that Trump is head and shoulder ahead of Clinton and he is backed by 45 percent people compared to Hillary Clinton’s 40 percent. Till now Hillary Clinton had clear advantage over Donald Trump, though the gap has been narrowing down pretty fast. The survey shows that Trump beats out Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) by 44 percent to 40 percent; Vice President Joe Biden by 44 percent to 42 percent; and former Vice President Al Gore by 44 percent to 41 percent.

A Washington Post report says, “If we compare the number of media mentions by week (bars) and with polls completed during the same seven-day period (dots) for Bush and Trump, we see two different patterns. Bush got a big boost from his announcement that faded over time — even as the number of mentions he got in the news stayed about even. Trump’s numbers rose with his mentions in the media and kept rising even as those mentions dropped a bit…With modest dips in media attention and Google searches, Trump has maintained — and grown! — his position in the polls. It’s not what you’d expect”.
