Trump''s presidential prospects dipping: Poll

Trump''s presidential prospects dipping: PollWashington, May 11: US millionaire Donald Trump''s presidential prospects have started to diminish, as President Barack Obama’s step of releasing his ‘long form birth certificate is beginning to change the public viewpoint about his birther issue.

Sixty-four-year-old Trump has slid down from the head of the Republican primary field to fifth-place, The New York Post quoted a newly-released survey from Democratic-aligned firm Public Policy Polling (PPP), as saying.

Trump has not declared whether or not he would run for the presidential poll in 2012, but his support has gone down to eight percent within the Republican circle, compared to 26 percent just one month earlier.

According to the poll, only 34 percent of Republicans said they were not sure that Obama was born in the US, down from 51 percent in February.

Trump''s fall proved beneficial for Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, who led the GOP field with 19 percent and 18 percent, respectively. (ANI)
