Donald Trump Republican Nomination

Donald Trump’s chances of winning the 2012 Republican US Presidential nomination continue to increase, now surpassing Michele Bachmann. 

Prediction market intrade.com had The Donald close to 8 percent after being at 5.8 percent just last week

Bachmann’s odds of grabbing the GOP nomination fell from just shy of 8 percent last week to 7 percent.

Mitt Romney (26.1 percent), Tim Pawlenty (15.5 percent) and Mitch Daniels (9.1 percent), all have better odds of winning the nomination.

Ron Paul’s chances have moved up to 4 percent, closing in on Sarah Palin at 4.6 percent. 

Trump on Wednesday also indicated that he could run as an Independent.  His odds of winning the US Presidency were close to 4 percent.

"I think the Republicans are very concerned that I [may] run as an independent," Trump said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. "I could also possibly win as an independent, otherwise I wouldn't do it. I'm not doing it for any other reason. I like winning."
