All eyes will be on Donald Trump’s performance at tonight’s second GOP presidential debate after he stole the show six weeks ago at the first contest.

Having increased his lead as the frontrunner since then, Trump is likely to again employ his signature style of unapologetic straight talk and promise to "Make America Great Again."

Here are seven ways Trump can triumph.

1. He has highlighted veterans ahead of the debate — Last week, Trump released an open letter to CNN's network president Jeff Zucker asking that the profits of Wednesday's debate be donated to U.S. veterans. "I believe that all profits from this broadcast should go to various veterans groups, a list of which I will send to you in the near future," he wrote. "While I refuse to brag, and as you know very well, this tremendous increase in viewer interest and advertising is due 100 percent to 'Donald J. Trump.'" At a speech Tuesday night aboard the battleship USS Iowa in Los Angeles, Trump said he would make it his mission to reform the Veterans Administration and provide better medical care for veterans.

2. He has put the moderators on notice — During the first debate, Trump refused to be cowed or destabilized by Fox News moderators Bret Baier, Megyn Kelly, and Chris Wallace. Not only did he glide past questions he deemed a waste of time, he even went on the offensive after the show, saying he "lost all respect" for the hosts. Fox News chairman Roger Ailes soon gave The Donald a call, and assured him he'd be treated fairly in the future.

3. He's not constrained by political correctness — During the first debate, Trump announced that "the big problem this country has is being politically correct . . . I don't frankly have time for total political correctness. And to be honest with you, this country doesn't have time either." His response drew huge cheers from the crowd. In the weeks following the debate, he slapped down one reporter's insistence that he refrain from using the term "anchor babies." Jeb Bush was also confronted about his use of the term, but gaffed in his response.

4. He is focused on the real issues that affect Americans — Many credit Donald Trump with bringing the issue of illegal immigration and foreign trade to the forefront when he launched his campaign earlier this summer. Trump understands that many American jobs have been outsourced to places like China, and that many remaining jobs went to illegal immigrants. Throughout his campaign, he's promised to fix both issues, and create more opportunities for everyday citizens.

5. He's free from lobbyist money — Being a successful businessman and billionaire, Donald Trump has said repeatedly that he neither needs nor wants lobbyist money, unlike his rival candidates. Expect to see him highlight this advantage during the debate.

6. He understands a strong America is a prosperous America — In his speech aboard the USS Iowa on Tuesday, he called for a robust rebuilding of our military so that no foe would ever even consider challenging the U.S. “We’re gonna make our military so big and so strong and so great,” he added. Expect to see Trump call for military strength during the GOP debate.

7. His challengers don't know how to stop him — Following the first debate, some of Trump's loudest critics have been candidates like Sen. Lindsey Graham and Gov. Bobby Jindal, the latter of which recently called Trump a "madman" and made fun of his hair. Neither of these critics have polled high enough to make it to the main debate stage, however. Another vocal critic of Trump's, Carly Fiorina, has recently jumped from the "undercard" stage to the main stage, and is sure to continue attacking Trump during the debate. Her jabs certainly haven't stopped Trump from surging in the polls, and it's unlikely they'll be any more effective on stage.
