It seems that nothing can bring down Donald Trump — not even a war with conservative kingmaker Fox News.

Trump is still crushing his GOP competitors in the polls, despite the punditry's many predictions of The Donald's quick and impending demise. Analysts have engaged in considerable head-scratching over the stamina of his popularity, wondering at what point Trump's nasty rhetoric might erode his standing in the Republican field. They have also wondered when his history of heterodox positions on key conservative issues such as abortion and affirmative action would cause GOP voters to rethink their support for Trump.
