Election Industry Threatened

This piece suggests that the reason that the establishment is dismayed by Trump’s 20-point lead is that he is spending no money on advertising.

Donald Trump’s ability to remain the undisputed GOP frontrunner in December even though he has hardly spent any money on traditional television advertising that enriches consultants in the permanent political class is why he represents an “existential threat” to the established political order.

Trump has spent a mere $227,000 while Jeb Bush, with a pathetic 3% in the polls, has spent $28.9 million. And it is not only the campaign professionals who are threatened, lobbyists and contributors are equally intimidated because he does not need to sell favors.
