Could Donald Trump’s 2016 election bid be announced some time in the near future? It’s long been presumed Hillary Clinton would be the biggest contender for president on the Democrat side, but a long-time Democratic pollster believes Mitt Romney would likely win if he chose to run for the Republican ticket.
In a related report by the Inquisitr, the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City may be a “bad investment” but billionaire Carl Icahn says he is willing to dump hundreds of millions into the casino in order to save thousands of jobs. Recently, the public had a look inside Donald Trump’s private jet and it’s filled with luxuries like a leather throne and gold seat belt buckles.
Shortly after the 2014 elections ended with a Republican victory, Donald Trump announced he may be interested in a 2016 presidential election run.
“I’m looking. I mean, I am going to look and I’m going to study and I’m going to see who’s running and I’m going to see what’s going to happen on the other side,” said Trump. “The country is doing horribly. We’re being scoffed at from all over, from every angle, and you look at what’s going on militarily and every other way. So, I’m going to take a very serious look and then I’ll see what happens.”
While “Stone Cold” Steven Austin may endorse Donald Trump as a great guy, NewsMax goes even further by suggesting he may be one of the best presidential options for the Republican Party. The multi-billionaire has managed to turn his name into a financial empire that would allow him to bankroll his own presidential campaign rather than rely solely on contributions like many other contenders. Unlike Mitt Romney, Trump is called a “true conservative” since he’s “against any tax increases, he’s pro-NRA, and pro-life.” Trump also has a foreign policy based upon strong opinions based upon Vladimir Putin’s Russia and China’s currency manipulations.
But typically when everyone thinks of the 2016 presidential elections it’s assumed that Hillary Clinton and Mitt Romney are the mostly likely candidates, although the latter has increasingly insisted that he’s not interested in another bid. Does that mean Hillary is the automatic winner? Not so, says Doug Schoen, former pollster for Bill Clinton. He notes that a recent Quinnipiac Poll shows Romney ahead of Clinton 45 percent to 44 percent in a possible 2016 presidential campaign. But even if Hillary doesn’t have to face off against Romney she faces another problem.
“The real question is how does she separate herself from Obama, yet not get so far away from him that … she doesn’t alienate his base constituents?” Schoen said on “The Cats Roundtable”. “I think much of what Mitt said in the last campaign has been validated,” he said. “And I think he’s been much better on the stump than he was four years ago. I think she’s a strong candidate, if she runs. But there’s a big if. The Democratic political base wants kind of populism.”
