The Iowa Statesman editor and co-publisher Bob Eschliman authored a piece this week that explains why Donald Trump’s campaign has been so successful, and why he seemingly can’t be brought down by missteps and gaffes that would have destroyed previous GOP frontrunners.

Is the GOP Missing the Boat?

By Bob Eschliman

“Conventional wisdom”—the collective knowledge of “experts” who have been following politics for years—has seemingly gone out the window this presidential election cycle, particularly in the Republican primary race.

Some blame the sheer number of candidates; depending on who you ask, there’s anywhere from 15 to 18 major candidates seeking the GOP nomination. Others blame the media and its secular/leftist bias, which mutes conservative Christian candidates and the grass-roots base that supports them.
