Time to look at the latest terrorist attack from the perspective of the upcoming election…..tacky? Yes it is….but after listening to the candidates speeches after the attack….apparently tacky is the way to go……
What are the chances that the latest attack will rise up as more support for Trump?
For some time, political observers have wondered — or feared — whether a major terror attack on American soil could sweep Donald Trump into the White House.
And now, in the wake of the mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando — and Trump’s speech in response to it, which was filled with anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant rhetoric — the question of what effect terror could have on the presidential campaign seems more urgent than ever.
“Clinton wants to allow radical Islamic terrorists to pour into our country,” Trump said in his Monday speech. “If we don’t get tough and if we don’t get smart, and fast, we’re not going to have our country anymore.”

Americans always look for a leader that will protect them…..the problem is the leaders they vote into office have terrible policies that make protection necessary….But with some sort of good news….will the attack and the rhetoric following real influence the election?
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have already responded to the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history, which occurred Sunday morning at a gay nightclub in Orlando. Indeed, the massacre, carried out by a man who swore allegiance to the Islamic State, will reshape the dialog around the presidential election, in the short term at least. But the truth is that we don’t know how the tragedy will affect the race, and we should be careful about making too many conclusions based on the polls too soon.
Trump’s support rose in Republican primary polls in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino in late 2015.
