Who made Trump the frontrunner?
There seems to be an emerging agreement that America's Leftist hegemony did. Obama and the Democrats did -- along with their sycophants in the media, the bureaucracy and the education system. They have foisted on America so many weird forms of correctness that the ordinary American has been left completely out of it:
Homosexuals are glorious; Men who feel they are women should be allowed to use women's restrooms; Fighting global warming is the main job of the armed forces; Only Muslims are allowed to pray in public; Christians must betray their faith in the service of homosexuals; little kids must be given lessons about sex; Women should be put into frontline combat as Marines; you must not say anything negative about Muslims or illegal immigrants or blacks etc etc.
All of these positions go against the grain for normal people but it is they who are told they are wrong, not the Leftist establishment. And if you express your honest opinion you run the risk of losing your job.
And the GOP have been no help. They just fall in line behind the Democrats on most issues. They agree that you must not say anything negative about Muslims or illegal immigrants or blacks etc etc. The GOP have been bullied into submission by Leftist shrillness.
Whether Trump has good policies or bad on various things hardly matters compared to the chance he gives of escaping from the Leftist mental straitjacket. His "incorrectness" is his main appeal
And note that his degree is in economics so he is unlikely to do anything foolish with the economy, which would be a welcome change
