Record Setting Trump

Record Setting Trump

Record Setting Trump is the Republican’s favorite talking point, as┬áTrump won more votes in the Republican presidential primaries than any previous candidate. While it is true, it was not really a good measure of his popularity. The population grows significantly every 4 years, so every presidential primary winner should set a new record. There were 17 candidates in the field, but only for one primary. Several candidates dropped out after Iowa. The field whittled down to only a handful after a few more contests. Bearing in mind that Trump went unopposed after the Indiana primary it would have been amazing if he had not set a new record.

Verdict: True but Misleading
