Trump Takes 10 Percent of GOP Vote in New Prez Poll

By on 3.23.11 | 2:58PM

According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll, 10 percent of Republican primary voters and GOP-leaning independents prefer Donald Trump for president. Nobody gets more than 19 percent (Mike Huckabee) with Mitt Romney at 18 percent and Newt Gingrich at 14 percent.

By comparison, Sarah Palin takes 12 percent and Ron Paul receives 8 percent. Based on the margin of error, the Donald could be Palin or Paul. Nobody else makes it out of the low single digits. I'm skeptical Trump will run based on his reluctance to get into the Reform Party race in 2000, but these poll results will definitely keep his name in the mix for a bit.
