Trump: If I Dropped In The Polls, I Would Quit The GOP Race (VIDEO)

October 4, 2015 12:39 p.m.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Sunday that he believed in polls and, if his numbers dropped, would leave the GOP race and go back to his business.

Trump said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he wasn’t a masochist.

“Number one — I’m not a masochist,” he said. “And if I was dropping in the polls where I thought I wasn’t gonna win, why would I continue?”

“I’m doing great in the polls,” Trump continued. “If I were doing poorly, if I saw myself going down, if you would stop calling me because you no longer had any interest in Trump because he was doing so poorly,” he said, talking to NBC host Chuck Todd. “I’d go back to my business. I have no problem with that.”
