I must admit, Donald Trump saying he would have beaten President Obama in the 2012 presidential campaign is a funny as Sen. Joni Ernst’s bread-bag story. He said he was leading in every poll. Um, really? Which poll? Oh wait, he’s talking about his brief lead in a GOP poll in early 2011. He conveniently forgets that his polling numbers imploded from 26 percent in April to eight percent in May. He’s deluded into thinking he could have beaten President Obama, who won by a landslide. Mitt Romney got 47% of the vote, the same number of Americans he called deadbeats.
In a sit-down interview with The Des Moines Register, he said the two presumed GOP frontrunners, Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush, are doomed to lose — and he expressed regret that he hadn’t run himself in 2012.
Trump said he should be in the White House right now.
“I was leading in every poll. … I regret that I didn’t stay in,” he said in an interview before a private dinner at the Stine Barn in West Des Moines. “I would’ve won the race against (President Barack) Obama. He would’ve been easy. Hillary (Clinton) is tougher to beat than Obama, but Hillary is very beatable.”
Trump said he heard Bush is trying to raise $15 million before he makes up his mind about running.
“If I do it, I’ll be self-funding so that solves that problem. Which is nice,” he said. Source: Des Moines Register
Every presidential election cycle we hear the usual drum beats from the likes of Donald Trump and Sarah Palin. No-one in their right minds would vote for either. They both have zero credibility and will never be POTUS. Donald Trump’s delusional comments comes days after a poll found most Republicans prefer Mitt Romney over Jeb Bush in the presidential elections.
