Seven weeks tomorrow the first state to decide in next year’s White House Race will choose which of the Democratic and Republican Party hopefuls will be their choice as nominees.
Hillary Clinton looks as though she has sewn up the Democratic race and most of the attention is on the Republicans. The chart above shows the national trend and as can be seen the property billionaire turned TV star is now back at his former heights in the Real Clear Politics polling average.
What is more striking is that Trump has big leads in both the Iowa caucuses and the first full primary, New Hampshire.
It wasn’t meant to be like this. The non-politico contenders were supposed to be out of the race by now, just like has happened in previous elections, and established politicians would be heading the field.
Now established pundits are starting to contemplate the possibility of a Trump victory.
I still find it hard to see Trump doing it but his position gets stronger as each day goes by and none of the other contenders have got near.
My current betting is on Trump, Rubio, and Cruz.
