Donald Trump, the billionaire real-estate developer and television personality, has now added “presidential candidate” to his list of titles. Surprisingly, he is doing considerably well in the public polls. His recent popularity surge may be due to his lack of a filter, or perhaps it’s purely for the entertainment his spectacles create.
