Donald Trump Tied for First Place in GOP Presidential Poll
He’s gone after President Barack Obama in the last few weeks, but could real estate mogul-turned-reality TV star Donald Trump actually make it to the White House? Maybe.
According to a CNN/Opinion Research Poll released Tuesday, which asked Republicans and Republican-leaning independents who they support for the 2010 GOP presidential nomination, Trump tied former Governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee for first place, with 19 percent of the vote.
However, Trump may not want to get his hopes up too quickly; CNN Polling Director Keating Holland added that “More than four in ten Republicans say they would not like to see Trump toss his hat in the ring.”
In other results, former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin grabbed 12 percent of the votes, while former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich each grabbed 11 percent.
Close behind were Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, with seven percent, and Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, with five percent.
Sound off: Do you think Trump will actually get the nomination?
