    No link, it's just an opinion piece, but I don't know where else to put it other than politics.

    I realized early on that all the news networks complaining about Trumps use of twitter and encouraging it to stop (pretending it was only hurting him) was for their own selfish reasons. They feared him
    circumventing their lenses
    and making any liars about his motivations, well, impotent and obsolete.

    Trump is far ahead of his time in this regard, the Leader of the Free World who is constantly marketing, getting his message out and receiving feedback directly to voters. It's so simple, yet, ground breaking and it's reinforced and expanded his support.

    He reaches out to people and read many tweets. You know this, as he retweets people who I've never heard of before. It angers those in the MSM and positions of influence as they cannot stop it. He basically goes directly to the public. I don't even look at him as a man in his 70's, he operates like he 30 years old. Inspiring really. He has the energy and Will Power to remain dynamic, treating his presidency with the passion he had in the business world. Contagious to the average American.

    Most politician just shrug off the average person, and they don't realize it is in fact THEY who they need to listen to. We saw this with the election of of the socialist Cortez. She upset the #4 in the Democratic Party as she went direct to the voters and made her case, her competitor complacent and entitled, taking it al or granted. Trump also reaches out to the people, he does this to constantly get feedback on what is popular and right, he knows what he wants to do, but, he is rewarded when he finds out his policies are popular.

    Trump respects the average person, listens to them. Even if he feigns interest in some cases, the fact is, people are heard. That's huge. He doesn't listen to lobbyists as much as he keeps his finger on the pulse of his supporters and voters, frustrating all who try and get influence with him for their OWN benefit, but at his political cost.

    There is a reason he has almost 90% of the GOP fiercely supporting him, it will continue to defy people. Like his position on tariffs. Try as they might to get him to recant and in fact hurt himself (and the U.S economy and Middle Class in the process, for their own selfish objectives), he stays the course and doubles down. His position on immigration, his love of the military and first responders. They can't break him, and his followers on twitter and many independents and ex-democrats using twitter to suggest they are behind him now, just reinforce that he is right.

    I hope he does well in the midterms, his positions are so popular with his supporters and so much at stake, I believe they will be behind him and come out in droves. Americans finally have their fighter and they won't let him down at the polls as long as he remains true to them.

    Thank you for your time.

    God Bless America! Get'er done Trump!

    Even Trump's most vociferous detractors will be forced to admit he is in touch with the average American citizen on a visceral level. And this factor alone gives rise to his popularity. ... :cool:
