History tells us that Trump's front runner status won't last long and I tend to agree that he will not be an exception to this rule. The beginning of every primary season, especially ones that have many candidates, tend to be based more on name recognition than anything else. And if Donald Trump has anything--it's name recognition.
It has been a lot of fun watching "The Donald" burst onto the scene and hijack the Republican Presidential primary, but I have to come out and say that he stands little to zero chance of actually winning the Republican nomination in 2016. I should probably just come out and say there is zero chance of him winning the nomination, but this is American politics and crazier things have happened before, so I will settle with little to zero.
Trump may still lead the polls after the 2nd GOP debate, but we should also remind ourselves that we are still months away from the first primary vote being cast and almost a year away from the conventions that officially pick each parties candidate.
It's easy to forget that Newt Gingrich was leading the polls in September of 2011. It's also easy to forget that Herman Cain had a surge in the polls around that same time. And lest we forget that Rick Santorum came in second to eventual nominee Mitt Romney in the primaries.
What I'm trying to say is that polling at this point in time is as worthless as a three dollar bill. Donald Trump is fun to watch on the stump and in the debates, but I just don't see any scenario where he becomes the eventual Republican nominee for the 2016 Presidential election.
