Donald Trump Media Blitz On Presidential

Press-Releases Donald Trump has been busy staying front and center in the public eye discussing his potential run for President. In the last few weeks, a day hasn’t gone by where I haven’t seen him on one channel or another doing an interview. Trump has made appearances on Gretta Van Susteren, Neil Cavuto, and C-Span among others. To be fair, his potential Republican contenders have been doing the rounds too, especially Newt Gingrich and Tim Pawlenty. Out of all of the interviews that Donald Trump has done lately, one in particular is enough to raise some eyebrows. That would be an interview he did on the show "Extra" with Mario Lopez. At first glance it really doesn’t seem like that much, but I beg to differ. Extra isn’t normally the forum a potential Presidential Candidate would choose to get out his message. What this interview does, however, is highlight one of the main advantages Donald Trump has over his rivals, his celebrity. Barack Obama was able to bring in not only loyal Democrat voters during his 2008 Presidential Campaign, but also casual observers and young people, many of whom don’t normally vote. In this age of mass media, his campaign handlers knew that being a celebrity was every bit as important as catering to his base supporters. They were able to utilize the internet and text messaging to mobilize people in a way never seen before. John McCain simply couldn’t .pete because he wasn’t interesting to the younger generation. Donald Trump, unlike his Republican rivals, would be able to .pete with Obama’s celebrity in a head to head race. Younger voters and casual observers might be willing to switch to something new and refreshing, and everyone knows who Donald Trump is. Through his popularity with the general public and his new hit show, "Celebrity Apprentice", he may be able to take away some of the pop culture vote from Barack Obama. I’ve maintained that in the end of the Republican primary, Donald Trump’s two main rivals will be Tim Pawlenty and Mitch Daniels. Out of those three, who is the most exciting candidate? It’s not even close. More and more people are jumping on the Donald Trump bandwagon. He has been, thus far, successful in getting out his message to the public. It is refreshing to watch a candidate answer questions in a thoughtful, yet candid way. Most of the time, the interviewee avoids answering the questions and instead spouts off talking points in a half-assed attempt to cater to a specific voting block. Donald Trump is a straight shooter that isn’t beholden to special interest groups. He realizes that America has lost the respect of other countries and his intent is to bring that respect back.
