When real estate mogul and television personality Donald Trump announced in June that he was a Republican candidate for president, some laughed it off. Well, no one’s laughing any more.
On Tuesday, he scored a decisive win in the Nevada caucuses.With his first-place showings in both New Hampshire and South Carolina, he also now has both momentum and history on his side. No candidate who has won both the New Hampshire and South Carolina primaries has ever lost the nomination, according to The Hill. Polls show him ahead in at least eight states voting within the next week.
