Pole leads Trump to top of Polls



See update at bottom of this post

Leading Republican Presidential hopeful Donald Trump has assembled a team of seasoned political strategists and campaign staffers with a brilliant Polish-American at the top.

Corey Lewandowski
Corey Lewandowski has been riding the Trump bandwagon since January managing a campaign that is receiving more media attention than any other candidate in either party. Lewandowski’s campaign leadership has induced migraine headaches in many old-line conservative Republicans especially since Trump is way ahead of the others in polling data.

Lewandowski left a short stint at the Republican National Committee in 2001 and wound up at the Koch brothers-backed Americans for Prosperity where his job was assisting New Hampshire Republicans before becoming national campaign manager for Trump.

In that very important primary state, Matt Ciepielowski another Polish-American was hired to manage a team of full-time Trump staffers heading into the primary election there.

In the manner of Trump, Lewandowski won a reputation for getting things done - even at the cost of decorum. "Corey is a pretty aggressive guy on issues. He was a go-getter and he was not afraid to air out an issue,” according to a Granite State lobbyist.

Lewandowski comes at a pretty penny. His income comes close to a quarter of a million dollars annually. The 40-year-old Lewandowski supports a family of six and resides in a spacious home valued at over $800,000.

The grandson of a union printer, Lewandowski grew up impoverished in Lowell, Massachusetts, playing pond hockey in the winters. He went on to graduate from the city's branch of the University of Massachusetts.

Inspired by U.S. President Ronald Reagan's work-hard version of the American dream, Lewandowski became an active Republican and moved to Washington after graduation working on Capitol Hill while earning a master's degree in political science at American University.

With Trump’s popularity among Republican voters guided by Lewandowski and seemingly being impervious to controversy – even rival Jeb Bush has called his candidacy a "phenomenon”.

Concerning Lewandowski, Jerry DeLemus, a Republican activist in New Hampshire says, "He certainly wouldn't be supporting Donald Trump if he didn't believe in him." 


Corey Lewandowski was terminated as Trump's campaign manager Monday, June 20 at a regular campaign strategy meeting held at Trump Tower in Manhattan. While Lewendowski served Trump well in the heated primary season - preparing for the Republican Convention in July and the General Election in November, Paul Manafort will assume responsibility for the campaign henceforth. There has been reason to believe that Trump's adult children were the force behind Lewandowski's ouster.  One senior Trump aide told The Associated Press that Lewandowski was forced out largely because he wasn’t getting along with Republican National Committee members and GOP officials. But a rumor persists Lewandowski was “caught red-handed” trying to place a negative story about Ivanka’s husband (Trump's son-in-law) in the press.


Donald Trump praised Lewandowski for performing admirably but said it was time for a change. “He’s a good man. We’ve had great success,” he told Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly. “But I think it’s time now for a different kind of a campaign.
