In order to get support of the majority of electorate and win any elections or obtain support for certain issues a politician should have a number of qualities, such as intelligence, dedication, ability to find solutions to complex problems and others. However, in order to gain popularity he has to master public speaking skills. One of the main objectives of a politician is to convince people in the correctness of his own views, a political concept, etc. A skilled orator is able to capture the audience attention and make it feel and sometimes do what he says. This is why being a master in public speaking is so important for a politician.
