Donald Trump is "putting his big fist right in the face of the establishment GOP" — and he knew what he was doing in attacking Arizona Sen. John McCain's war record, conservative pollster Matt Towery told Newsmax TV on Friday.

"McCain has a huge sector of Republicans, ultra conservatives, who cannot stand him and don't care whether you insult him," he told "Newsmax Prime" host J.D. Hayworth. "The Donald's not going anywhere. He's going to keep his numbers for a while."

But those top survey figures aren't going to last much longer, said Newsmax chief political columnist and White House correspondent John Gizzi.

"As we get into the fall, people will look exactly and start asking Mr. Trump just what kind of a solution does he offer, what are the details of his plan for dealing with immigrants — legal and otherwise.

"These numbers may be quite shocking and good food for discussion in the summer, but I would say that when the snows of New Hampshire are upon us, they will not be the same."

In the meantime, however, the billionaire businessman is going to be a force in the race — especially since Trump is "self-funded," Towery added.

"Even if he's losing his percentage bit by bit, he can be one of those last three or four candidates standing simply because he'll have the money to continue several state-by-state battles," he told Hayworth. "Iowa will be more difficult than New Hampshire. He might pick back up in the South if he's still going.

"We'll see where this is come January — but in the next month or two, you're still going to see this guy as a substantial player in this race."

And, as for the Ross Perot effect, Trump could fall victim to that campaign's biggest problem — the candidate himself — Gizzi said.

He cited a conversation with Ed Rollins, the Republican strategist who briefly co-managed the Perot campaign in 1992.

"He told me that Perot would not listen, that he would not put his own money behind what Rollins and the late Hamilton Jordan, the co-campaign manager and a Democrat, had in mind," Gizzi told Hayworth. "People like that who are great successes in the business tend to be very skeptical of those who want to run a traditional political campaign.

"Donald Trump well may fall prey to the same things that Ross Perot did," he added. "Ross Perot in November of '92 was not the same person he was a year earlier."
