    Because Jeb Bush is misunderstanding the concerns of his potential political base and his campaign is trying to manipulate the questions of his potential base into something he thinks he understands but doesn't. Also his campaign is doing a horrible job at that and it makes Jeb Bush look like a puppet of Republican party bosses. Jeb Bush is the only candidate out there that can make speeches what sounds like good speeches that are an unintentional parody or farce of the concerns of the Republican voters.

    Trump, on the other hand, cannot be bought and is a brash and successful individual in an arena outside politics. Also the current crop of "successful politicians" are really not successful in their stated goals so people hunger for someone that can get "the job done". The current career politicians are saying "I'm getting the job done" and faking it while they get rich and bought out by corporate America and we all see that.

    Also Trump's support is the Republican voters punishment for breaking promises from the 2014 election and simply want the hand picked candidates to squirm and freak out. They want to see everyone's A game and without Trump it was clear that was not going to be allowed to happen and Corporate America would have given the nominations to Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton.

    Because the media is all about ratings and Donald Trump is the one stirring things up and people want to tune in to hear what he's going to say next ,that's why he's getting the most attention.

    Because a capitalist media is entirely dedicated to ratings.

    Say what you will about Trump, he is entertaining.

    He's keeping the public seated. That's all that matters to a privately-owned media.
