Donald Trump hasn’t shied away from controversial statements this election cycle. In fact, many agree that Trump’s over the top, non traditional style is part of his appeal.

It will be interesting to see how, and if, his latest comments will affect his poll standings.

Trump claimed that he could shoot someone on the streets of New York City and not be affected in the election polls.

“I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters,” Trump said at a recent campaign event in Iowa.

Trump then went on to criticize supporters of Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz, calling them “soft” and claiming his supporters were more loyal.
