Fox News host and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee thinks the time may be ripe for billionaire developer Donald Trump to re-enter the presidential race.
In an email sent out Thursday, Huckabee quotes Democratic pollster Pat Caddell as saying more and more Americans believe that leaders of both parties are “acting like children.” Huckabee also points out that the polls are increasingly reflecting this sentiment.
“Caddell said there’s never been a better time for an independent candidate with business experience to run for office,” Huckabee writes. “So who knows? Maybe we haven’t seen the last of Donald Trump.”
Huckabee continues: “The American people, who shouldn’t have to be watching this as closely as they are, are getting fed up. They’ve made their wishes perfectly clear: close tax loopholes, cut spending, pay down the debt and start living within your means. It’s what most of us have had to do ourselves. Yes, we all know running a government isn’t the same as running a household. But what most people are seeing now strikes them less as government than a rowdy kindergarten class that needs a time out.”
For his part, Trump isn’t showing any signs that he’s ready to re-enter the race. He also said he doesn’t care about polls. But he told Fox News on Monday that Republicans should stand firm against Obama.
"Unless Republicans get 100 percent of what they want -- and that may include getting rid of 'Obamacare,' which is a total disaster -- they should not make a deal other than a minor extension which would take you before the elections which would ensure that Obama doesn't get elected, which would be a great thing,” Trump said. “The Republicans have the leverage. I don't care about polls. When it comes time to default, they're not going to remember any of the Republicans' names. They are going to remember in history books one name, and that's Obama."
