SAYING THAT PEOPLE ARE THINKING.

>> Reporter: IT MAY BE HARD TO CALL IT THE MANIA NOW BUT BURIED IN THE GOP PACK WHEN HE FIRST SAID SOMETHING ABOUT MEXICAN IMMIGRANTS THAT PUNDITS THOUGHT WOULD CRATER HIS CAMPAIGN.

>> THEY ARE BRINGING DRUGS, CRIMES, RAPISTS. >> Reporter: THAT WAS JUNE. BY JULY, HIS POLL NUMBERS WERE RISING. THEN HE WENT AFTER REPUBLICAN

SENATOR JOHN McCAIN. >> HE'S A WAR HERO BECAUSE HE WAS CAPTURED. >> BLOOD COMING OUT OF HER WHEREVER. >> Reporter: MIDWEST VOTERS.

>> HOW STUPID ARE THE PEOPLE OF IOWA? >> Reporter: EVEN A DISABLED JOURNALIST. >> OH, I DON'T KNOW WHAT I SAID. >> Reporter: AND HE'S TOPPED THE

POLLS FOR ALMOST A HALF YEAR NOW. AND WHILE OTHER CANDIDATES HAVE BEEN BURNING THROUGH THEIR WAR CHESTS BUYING ADS, TRUMP IS ONLY NOW TALKING ABOUT PAYING FOR ANY

TV TIME. >> I SPENT LESS MONEY THAN ANYBODY ELSE AND I HAVE THE BEST RESULT. >> Reporter: IN ALMOST EVERY WAY, THE BUSINESSMAN FROM NEW

YORK IS SHREDDING THE POLITICAL PLAYBOOK WHILE HIS OPPONENTS SHAKE HANDS IN CAFES, TRUMP SKIPS THE RETAIL POLITICS, ROARING IN ON HIS PRIVATE JET TO LEAVE MASSIVE RALLIES.

>> UNBELIEVABLE. >> Reporter: WHILE OTHER CANDIDATES SQUIRM AT ANY FALSEHOOD CAUGHT BY A FACT CHECKER, TRUMP WHO HAS BEEN CALLED OUT FOR FALSE STATEMENTS

OVER AND OVER AGAIN BRUSHES CRITICISM OFF LIKE A LINT ON OUR MIND. >> SHE WANTED TO BREAST PUMP IN FRONT OF ME. AND I MAY HAVE SAID THAT'S

DISGUSTING. I MAY HAVE SAID SOMETHING ELSE. I THOUGHT IT WAS TERRIBLE. >> Reporter: AND THE HITS JUST KEEP COMING. >> SHE GOT SCHLONGED.

SHE LOST. >> GIVE MAY BREAK. >> EXCUSE ME. SIT DOWN. YOU WEREN'T CALLED. >> Reporter: CAMPAIGN WISDOM

DIES HARD HERE IN D.C. SO EACH TIME TRUMP SAYS SOMETHING THAT DEFIES CONVENTION, THE POLITICAL ESTABLISHMENT STILL SAYS THAT'S IT, HIS CAMPAIGN WILL FINALLY BE
