Reuter's campaign correspondent, James Olefonte.>> Trump's biggest contribution to this political cycle is the suggestion that personality, if you forgive the phrase, Trumps anything. Giving his own version of the campaign his own version sometimes effects, his own version of the race has really allowed him in a way, to define a new style of political campaigning.
