THE PERILS OF DONALD TRUMP

Maybe you have heard some of these statements from ardent Trump supporters:  Including, 'Don't dump Trump, look at the polls', 'He keeps winning debates', or even, 'No one else can beat Trump.  Look how he took care of Jeb.'

True, Donald Trump is looking strong through most polling and his supporters are very passionate about the man.  Yet, when you look under the hood of Trump's campaign there are issues.  Structural campaign issues that even Trump's best fans may dismiss.

There are two specific areas of Donald Trump's campaign that need to be pointed out.

First, his campaign style is high-profile and media driven.  Almost like The Apprentice TV show has gone on a 'round the country media blitz since Don's campaign launch in July.  What the campaign did was to use his celebrity status as a magnet to literally suck all of the media attention from the other GOP candidates.  

For months now, Trump has been given a live pulpit of media coverage where ever he travels.  From the mainstream and right of center media as well. And, miraculously he has succeeded.

Well, the peril of this media driven campaign is that it is short-lived.  We are now witnessing what the Maverick pointed out months ago.  That eventually the media would pull back, target another candidate, and Trump's polling and media grab would start to falter.

You see, a media driven campaign, even with Donald Trump as your man, will eventually lose gas.  Especially with the fickle, leftist nature of the media.  

Now the second peril of Trump's campaign.  Well, what campaign.  His campaign infrastructure is very weak.   I'm talking the necessary campaign field staff and presence in key battleground states to identify and mobilize voters for upcoming caucuses/primaries. 

It's amazing the turnout Trump has at arenas and other events, but when it comes to Primary Day, who do you have working to assure these people show up to vote? 

With Trump, this is a severe flaw in his campaign.  The lack of field staff that are on the ground and working every day to solidify your base of voters.  

For comparison sake, do you know how many field staff Trump had just a month ago?  A grand total of 50 in a few key states.  Now, how many staffers has Hillary had nationally since January?  The answer is 350.  Yes, that is a staggering stat, and should be of grave concern to Trump backers.

Why is Trump stalling in polls in Iowa?  It's simple.  He has not had the paid field staff on the ground identifying solid supporters.  And, who has?  Ben Carson.  That is why Carson is on track to win in Iowa and is doing well in Iowa polls.  Now, if this is the case in Iowa.  The lack of Trump staff is going to hurt him in other key states like New Hampshire, South Carolina and Florida.

Now the perils of Trump are colliding.  His media driven campaign is ever so slowly waning.  And, now he needs his ground game with field staff to kick in.  Yet, his campaign infrastructure is hollow and superficial.

We are now less than 90 days till the Iowa Caucuses.  Trump must bear down and get his ground troops hired to bring out his supporters.  If Trump continues to lag with infrastructure, you will see him steadily decline in battleground state polling.  As other candidates vested in staff begin to make head way with voters that will show up on Primary Day.

Bottom line:  Trump has to spend $$$ fast to bulk up his battleground team or his campaign is in peril.

AMERICAN MAV PRESIDENTIAL POWER RANKING UPDATE

Trump and Hillary still top polling, but there a lot of movement with other candidates from both parties.  Let's get to it!  Here's the Power Rankings as of September 8, 2015...



Republicans:  Donald Trump continues to sustain his polling and media dominance over the Republican field of candidates.  The story is what's happening with Jeb Bush and Scott Walker's polling.  Both are slipping in national and battleground polls.  While moderate Ben Carson is surging.  Yet, did you hear Carson came out to support Amnesty and gun control??  Internal campaign issues and staff defections cost Rand Paul and Rick Perry.  Let's remind one another that it is still early, but hey, the next GOP debate is coming up soon on September 16th. What could possibly go wrong??

Rank     Republican Candidate
   1        Donald Trump    ---
   2        Ben Carson         +5
   3        Jeb Bush            -1
   4        Ted Cruz            ---
   5        Marco Rubio       +1
   6        Carly Fiorina      +3
   7        Scott Walker      -4
   8        John Kasich       ---
   9        Rand Paul          -4
 10        Chris Christie     +1
 11        Mike Huckabee  +1
 12        Rick Perry          -2
 13        Bobby Jindal      ---
 14        Rick Santorum    -3
 15        Lindsey Graham  -3
 16        George Pataki     ---
 17        Jim Gilmore        ---

Democrats:  Hillary is slipping badly in polling, both nationally and key battleground states like Iowa and New Hampshire.  Socialist Bernie Sanders is leading Hill in New Hampshire by 10 points!  Oh, and then there is the situation with Hillary's email.  All this is giving mainstream Dems the willys.  And, none other than uncle Joe Biden is readying his campaign to take on Hillary and Bernie for the Dem nomination.  Can this get more messy for Hillary?  Yes!  The anniversary of Benghazi is on September 11th.  Finally, Biden and the wicked Cherokee from Massachusetts Elizabeth Warren had a impromptu meeting supposedly to talk about the Dem ticket of Biden/Warren.  Hope Joe keeps his hands to himself.  The media and the White House are definitely picking favorites, and right now its Joe Biden.

Rank     Democrat Candidate
   1        Hillary Clinton       ---
   2        Bernie Sanders      ---
   3        Joe Biden              +4
   4        Elizabeth Warren   +3
   5        Martin O'Malley      -2
   6        Jim Webb               -2
   7        Lincoln Chafee       -2

The American Maverick will provide periodic updates of how candidates are performing for their respective party nomination.  Candidates that have declared will have greater weighting.  Because you have to be in it, to win it.  All rankings consider how candidates jockey for attention, handle media stress and overall how they keep their message and candidacy at the forefront of American voters.

AMERICAN MAV SHOW GOES LOCAL! ALBEMARLE COUNTY CANDIDATES ON-AIR

That's right!  This week's American Maverick Show is focusing on great local conservatives working hard with strong campaigns for Albemarle County Supervisor and School Board.  Host Flint Engleman will have three candidates in studio to talk about their priorities, positions and perspective on local government.

As we all are realizing, what we thought was a problem on the federal and state level with despondent elected officials, big government policies and cronyism, has worked its way down to local government.  For years, local officials have steadily embraced the policies of a bloated, high tax government.  Now, citizens are being squeezed by taxes, increasing regulations and elected officials that turn a deaf ear to constituents.

Thankfully there are solid, conservative candidates running for local office in Virginia and beyond to bring common sense leadership home.  Candidates that will restore fiscal sanity to county budgets, reduce regulations to spawn economic growth, and will listen to the voice of the electorate.

This week we are proud to welcome three great candidates to the show!

Listen live on News Talk 107.5 FM WCHV or our re-broadcast on Red State Talk Radio Network.

In-studio Guests for Sunday, September 6th :

Richard Lloyd.  Republican candidate for Rivanna District for Virginia's Albemarle County Board of Supervisors.

Caroll "CJ" Hatcher.  She's an educator not a politician.  CJ is campaigning for the White Hall District for the Albemarle County School Board.

Mike Basile.  Independent candidate with the heart of a citizen activist.  Mike is running his campaign for Samuel Miller District for the Albemarle School Board.

AMERICAN MAV PRESIDENTIAL POWER RANKING UPDATE

The latest American Maverick Presidential Power Rankings looks to realize the impact of Trump factor on the Republican field of candidates.  And, on the Democrat side, Hillary continues to show her less than astute campaign age as she sees her favorables falter in battle ground states.

Let's get to it.  Here's the Power Rankings as of July 26, 2015...


Republicans:  No matter what you think about Donald Trump as a candidate, his persona is kicking the heck out of the other candidates.  The American Mav remains cautious with Trump's long term impact, yet cannot ignore Trump's immediate dominance in the media and polling.  Despite his McCain stumble, Trump is maintaining strong polling.  In essence, Trump is sucking all the media away from the other candidates so they struggle for any real traction with voters.  

So, this update shows Trump rocketing to the top while others generally maintain their position.  Newbies are Kasich, Christie, Pataki, and Jindal.  The new candidates were barely noticed with the Trumpster working the media.

Rank     Republican Candidate
   1        Donald Trump    +5
   2        Jeb Bush            ---
   3        Scott Walker      +3
   4        Ted Cruz            -4
   5        Rand Paul           -2
   6        Marco Rubio       -2
   7        Ben Carson        +1
   8        John Kasich       New
   9        Carly Fiorina      -2
 10        Rick Perry          +1
 11        Chris Christie     New
 12        Mike Huckabee   -3
 13        Bobby Jindal      New
 14        Rick Santorum    -3
 15        Lindsey Graham  -3
 16        George Pataki     New

Democrats:  Yes, Hillary still sits on her throne of course.  But, is her crown about to fall? Recent polling in battleground states shows her favorables dropping.  She is now trailing head to head match-ups versus Walker, Paul, and Bush in Colorado, Iowa and Virginia.  Bernie Sanders continues capturing old Obama donors, and packing 5,000-10,000 people at his rallies.  O'Malley, Webb and the other booble heads continue to flounder with little turnout at events, nor media attention.

Rank     Democrat Candidate
   1        Hillary Clinton       ---
   2        Bernie Sanders      ---
   3        Martin O'Malley      +1
   4        Jim Webb             +2
   5        Lincoln Chafee     --- 
   6        Elizabeth Warren  -3
   7        Joe Biden              ---

The American Maverick will provide periodic updates of how candidates are performing for their respective party nomination.  Candidates that have declared will have greater weighting.  Because you have to be in it, to win it.  All rankings consider how candidates jockey for attention, handle media stress and overall how they keep their message and candidacy at the forefront of American voters.
