WATCH Donald Trump’s TV Ad as He Starts Campaigning

Donald Trump's TV ad

Donald Trump’s TV ad marks a new stage in the campaign as he moves to take the White House.

With Donald Trump’s first TV ad coming out in swing states, we can be pretty sure that the wait is over and Trump is moving to win the White House in November.

At first, I was offended by the comments that Trump had to do what “Republicans want,” since I’m pretty sure the analyst means Republican VIPs.

However, focusing on Hillary’s negatives is probably a wise choice. If Donald Trump needs to get as many votes as possible, he needs to win over those that are still undecided. If they haven’t decided to vote for him yet, it makes sense that it would be time for Trump to change his style to reach them. He’s not going to lose those who are already committed to him by doing so.

How much a change might such a shift make? Consider recent news about African American voters as an example. Breitbart reports,

The Los Angeles Times/USC Dornsife national tracking poll of the presidential campaign picked up a sharp uptick in African-American support for Republican nominee Donald J. Trump, which it now pegs at 14.6 percent.

When the “Daybreak” poll began July 10, Trump‘s support among black voters was 4.6 percent and he fluctuated between 5.4 percent Aug. 1 and 2.5 percent Aug. 11.

The upswing in support for Trump–more than 500 percent above his low less than a week previous–comes after the New York City developer’s address Tuesday in the Milwaukee suburb of West Bend, Wisconsin. In that speech, Trump made his most direct play for African-American support in the campaign.

Everything can change. In my opinion, if Donald Trump wants to be President, then he will be President.
