Republican frontrunner Donald Trump is 'repetitive' and a lot could happen over the next two weeks to change the course of the US presidential nominations, Dr. Robert Guttman, Director of the George Mason University’s School of Policy, Government and International Affairs, told Sputnik.

While Republican presidential nomination frontrunner Donald Trump accuses his opponents of repeating themselves, he is no less guilty of the same thing, Dr. Robert Guttman, Director of the George Mason University’s School of Policy, Government and International Affairs, told Radio Sputnik.

​"Cruz, Rubio and Kasich have all had more substance than Trump. Trump accuses Rubio of saying the same thing over and over again, but Trump says the same thing, 'we're going to win so much we'll be tired of winning,' or 'I'm going to show the Chinese how tough we are,'" Guttman said.

Guttman highlighted Trump's refusal to take part in a question and answer session at the Conservative Political Action Convention last weekend, after having made a $100,000 donation to them.

"He didn't want to be questioned on the issues, Cruz and Rubio both showed up."

Trump benefits from the US public's desire for something new, but the campaign is at an early stage and John Kasich and Marco Rubio are in a position to win some upcoming primaries that would give them momentum, Guttman said.

On the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders is benefitting from an energetic campaign that also taps into the anti-establishment mood in the US. 

"Bernie Sanders unbelievably raised $41 million last month which is incredible because he raised it all in donations over the internet."

"People are tired, and we're all tired of Hillary Clinton, she's been around forever and her husband was president for two terms."

"It’s anti-establishment all the way on both sides, Trump and Cruz like to say they're anti-establishment, Bernie, who's been in politics for 30 years also likes to say he's anti-establishment."

"We may have Hillary fatigue, if Bernie keeps raising this kind of money and keeps raising caucuses and primaries he's going to be in it, and the Hillary coronation is going to have to wait." 

"On the other side Trump is this wildcard, you have to say he's the leader now, but there are many pitfalls along the way. If Cruz gets to be one on one on him, he could win, if Kasich pops up and wins Michigan and Ohio he's a player, if Rubio wins Florida he's a player."

"So a lot could happen over the next two weeks, and being politics in America it will."
