Well, he did get Obama to release a phony long-form birth certficate.
The election isn't for another year and a half.
The only thing Obama can look forward to (IMHO) winning is another game of golf.

Makes me wonder if the Donald had this all planned out from the start. I can remember him making numerous tv appearances by phone and in person, on different media networks (mainly Fox) giving advise on the gulf oil spill, economy etc. I guess he saw his commentary getting a little air play so he ran with it!
I think he was never serious about applying for a job that entailed helping America, he did however help himself to a little free publicity for his show.

Why is this breaking news? Trump was never going to run. He's a democratic media plant.
And seriously, Huckabe or Romney, Please!!! Get these a-holes out of here.
Ron Paul or Hermain Cain are our best bets.

This is funny, Trump was the world's most pathetic birther. Caving in on the first chance he could get. Out of the millions of people who know without a doubt the long form is a fake you'd think Trump would have one of his high paid assistants inform him of this. If he does know, he is a coward for not coming out with the truth.

Ok first i dont think Donald was ever serious about his campaign for presidency. Second i dont think Obama will take it either. are the people of the states not mad about his presidency? He hasnt done anything he said he would do...and started more wars with other countries. do the Americans really want him for a second term?
The survey found that 52 percent approve of Obama's overall job performance -- a seven percentage point increase from its last measure in October 2010 -- while 57 percent disapprove of his handling of the economy and 60 percent say the nation is on the "wrong track."
The poll, which has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points, shows Obama's popularity has rebounded since the 2010 midterm congressional elections. Fifty-nine percent of respondents said they would vote to re-elect him or consider doing so in 2012, and 38 percent said they definitely wouldn't.
The numbers also show continuing challenges for the president, with 56 percent saying they are concerned or frustrated with the direction of the country. Forty-eight percent ranked jobs and the economy or spending and deficits as their top concern.
The findings suggest public backing for boosting the $14.3 trillion debt limit, with 56 percent saying it would be "disastrous" to the U.S. economy if Congress didn't raise the limit. Still, almost a third of respondents, 32 percent, said failing to raise the ceiling wouldn't have a serious impact, an argument being made by a growing number of congressional Republicans.
The survey of 1,000 registered likely voters was conducted March 8-12 by Republican pollster Ed Goeas of The Tarrance Group and Democratic pollster Celinda Lake of Lake Research Partners.
