Trump boasted of his ranking as “number one in the polls” before he announced he would not seek the GOP nomination in June, but didn’t discount the possibility that he may yet have a candidacy to declare.
“If the Republicans choose the wrong candidate…and if the economy continues to be bad…I will certainly consider [running for the presidency] as an independent,” Trump confirmed.
I find this interesting. If Trump runs, he would likely pull some of the more moderate Republican voters. This could prove troublesome in 2012 because the offset might be something like the Nader effect in 2000.
I believe the Republicans would do anything in their power to prevent him from running in 2012. Thoughts?
