In a report by Bloomberg, Donald Trump unofficially announced his candidacy to run for President in 2012 as a Republican. There will not be an official announcement until after the Apprentice season is over, but “in my mind” I will run for President. “I am going to announce. But I can’t do anything until the show ends.” said Trump.
I don’t know if he already had it planned or if the rough weekend of jokes by Obama and Seth Meyers pushed him into the ring. Either way, this will be an interesting political season. Trump will try to beat Romney on who can run a business better, even though BOTH candidates have outsourced American jobs.
Trump made a fool out of himself with the birther issue and Romney will not be able to get past Romney/Obamacare. Although in recent polls trump is the front runner.
Some recent polls have shown Trump at or near the top of a large field of potential Republican candidates. In an April 26 Rasmussen Reports poll, Trump led with support from 19 percent of 1,000 likely Republican primary voters nationwide. The poll’s margin of error was plus or minus three percentage points.
A Gallup Poll conducted April 15-20 showed Trump tied with former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee at 16 percent, atop a list of 15 possible candidates. Gallup questioned 1,047 Republicans and Republican-leaning independents. The poll had an error margin of plus or minus four percentage points.
We will see what happens at the end of Apprentice’s season which ends May 22nd. PoliticusUSA will be keeping our ears to the ground for any further developments.
