Donald Trump is real
When Trump got into the presidential race many saw it as a an entertainment stunt. In a turn of events it looks like it is a political milestone.

Super Pacs aren’t everything

The Pacs have been used to raise unlimited amount worth of campaign money. Perry had to lay off almost his entire campaign team whereas Bush’s campaign has cut staff pay and laid of fundraisers as well.

She has had negative news going her way recently and her poll ratings are dwindling. The most important lesson this time of the Presidential race is that anything can happen.
