Donald Trump may the spark the Republican party needs

by Jeff Lightsy Jr.

If you haven’t heard by now, the Democratic party has been winning a lot recently. From their bill getting passed in Congress, to Obamacare being upheld, to gay marriage being legalized in all 50 states. And Democratic nominee Hilary Clinton has been reaping the benefits of those recent wins and according to CNN’s latest poll she is the favorite to win the 2016 presidential election.

The Republican party needs life right now. The have lost the last two presidential elections and don’t seem to be in a good position to take back the presidency in 2016. Who better to give this party a jolt of energy than say one Donald Trump. Yes, this crazy non-politician is exactly what the Republican party needs right about now. His unconventional ways are a different approach to a party whose known for staying the same.

Don’t get me wrong, I do not agree with some most of the things Trump says. Especially those disgusting statements he uttered about the Latino race. But, through all of the controversy Trump finds himself second among Republican GOP candidates. I don’t believe that Trump will become the Republican presidential nominee, but he will continue to be interesting to watch throughout the process.
