Donald Trump boycotted the Fox News/Google debate in Iowa due to a dust-up with Fox News, but he still won.
Matt Drudge’s DrudgeReport.com ran a poll during the debate to understand who people felt won it. Even though Donald didn’t attend, his numbers indicate .. it didn’t matter.
Trump also claimed that his veteran’s event raised over $6 million dollars for veteran’s causes. The number is unconfirmed. Then again, the drudge poll is not a scientific poll and may or may not suffer from the same ‘squeeky wheel’ anomaly as previous years’ web poll that showed Ron and Rand Paul as clear winners only to watch them go down in flames.
Real or not, Trump is pulling in large crowds, getting a ton of media attention and wooing Americans at a rate not seen since Reagan – and the establishment didn’t like Ronald Reagan either.
