For those of us who have heard Donald Trump speak, it's no surprise that his use of grammar is typical of children aged 11 and under. If only for the fact that he repeats himself regarding 'winning' so often.
And yes, most people speak in a much simpler way when compared with how they write. However, Trump is still trailing behind Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio - the latter being his previous counterpart - as their vocabulary matched students aged between 13 and 16.
The statistics come from 'A Readability Analysis of Campaign Speeches from the 2016 US Presidential Campaign', a study by researchers from Carnegie Mellon University's Language Technologies Institute (LTI).
To find out the information, they studied transcripts of candidates' speeches.
As you can see, George Bush had absolutely awful grammatical skills, however his vocabulary matched that of Barack Obama.
