"You bet Republicans should want [Donald] Trump to remain a GOP in the race," said one Republican pollster. "If he runs as an independent, conventional wisdom is that he will guarantee Hillary Clinton wins." (Associated Press)
Donald Trump, current Republican presidential candidate - Now leading the polls in the Republican race for the 2016 presidential nomination, Donald Trump has at one time considered himself a Democrat, an Independent and a member of the Reform Party. He has made contributions to campaigns of both Republican Party and Democratic Party candidates and was an early supporter of President Reagan. After years of talking about a run for president, he ran for the nomination of the Reform Party in 2000, winning the party's California primary. While he continues to make waves in the Republican Party, Trump has still maintained a willingness to run as an Independent if he doesn't receive the Republican nomination in 2016.
