. . . Ross Perot redux?
Sayeth The Donald:
“Around the middle of May I’ll be able to do whatever I want and I could run as an independent,” Trump said in a web video he record. “If the Republicans pick the wrong person I would, in fact, seriously consider running.”
If Trump runs, he will split the independent and conservative votes and guarantee Obama's re-election. It's dead certain that Trump won't gain a significant number of Obama voters.
I believe in on person, one vote - not one person deciding the outcome, and that's exactly what a third party candidate always does. Perot single-handedly elected Clinton. Trump can do the same for Obama.
Trump and Perot have more ego than common sense.
