Washington: In an unsuspected political scenario, Donald Trump surprisingly reached the expected number of delegates and filed for the nomination for President (Republican). This has taken politicians and the party supporters by surprise as it came out totally unexpected. This happened when a few of republican unbound delegates decided to support Trump at their national convention which is expected to happen in July. This made Trump the top in the list of Associated Press delegates.
One of his leading supporters are Pam Pollard, Oklahoma GOP chairwoman, She says that she has absolutely no problem in supporting Mr. Trump and also that he has managed to touch a particular part of the electorate who is unhappy with the present state of the country and wants it to change. Trump has been a political commentator and critic for many years before he decided to run for the President. He achieved support of 1238 delegates for nomination (the minimum number of delegates required is 1237.)
There has been an outrage of criticism regarding Trump’s attitude and his crass personality. He has been in in the media for his derogatory comments on women and has been trolled extensively by social media and other social networking sites. All this deeply affected his popularity which made people from the right to give him a cold response and an obvious lack of support .However, things have taken a new and disturbing twist which might be an indication of the internal problems.
