If you’re among the anti-Trump crowd, what the GOP presidential frontrunner just revealed may be music to your ears.Trump says he’ll pull out of the race — if he starts falling behind in the polls.
Many in the Republican party do not want or like Trump being the frontrunner in the race. The fact is, though, he is. Trump’s struck a chord with many Americans who are tired of politics as usual.
From The Blaze:
Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump made sure to emphasize in his “Meet the Press” interview Sunday that he’s ahead in the GOP polls: “I’m leading everything, by a lot.”But Trump also told host Chuck Todd that if his poll numbers began to decline to the point “where I saw that I wasn’t gonna win,” he would drop out of the 2016 race.
“I’m not a masochist,” he said.“If I were doing poorly, if I saw myself going down, if you would stop calling me ’cause you no longer have any interest in Trump because he has no chance, I’d go back to my business,” Trump said. “I have no problem with that.”
Interesting that Trump makes these comments as his lead has started to slip, for the first time, in polls. In fact, one recent poll found Trump in second place behind Ben Carson.Many also have been fearful if Trump didn’t get the nomination, he’d run as an independent. Trump has pledged not to, so this has given some relief on that point.
The question remains though. What if Trump does win the nomination? I hear people calling Trump a joke and an embarrassment. These opinions come most loudly from the Republican establishment.
What the normal everyday American voter thinks may turn out to be a much different opinion. This race, like all others, will come down to who has the most money to get their message out. Right now, Trump is spending his own money. Where the PAC money winds up is yet to be determined.
