Donald Trump admits he will run for President in 2012

What is being seen by many as a publicity stunt more than a serious interest in politics, Donald Trump has announced that he will definitely run for President in 2012. He says he will run, but he can’t do anything until this season of his show, The Celebrity Apprentice, is over.

New York real estate developer Donald Trump says he has decided “in my mind” to run for president, yet won’t make an official announcement before the season finale of his reality television show later this month.

“In my mind, I have already decided,” Trump, 64, said in a telephone interview yesterday. “I am going to announce. But I can’t do anything until the show ends.”

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.
