Donald Trump floated the idea of a third-party bid this morning - but insisted he doesn't 'want to do that.'
'I'm leading every single poll...so obviously, I'm very happy where I am,' he told Michael Strahan today as he responded to a question from the Live with Michael and Kelly host about running as an independent.
The people of the Republican Party have been 'phenomenal,' Trump said. 'The party, I'll let you know about that. And if I don't get treated fairly, I would certainly consider that.'
Trump touted a USA Today poll that found 68 percent of his supporters would stick with him if he parted ways with the party, before he again said, 'I don't want to do that.'
All of the GOP's candidates for president signed a loyalty pledge, promising to endorse the party's eventual nominee.
Trump announced his signing at a showy press conference in September in the lobby of his New York City headquarters after meeting with the party head Reince Preibus.
After Trump introduced his Muslim-banning proposal on Monday and the party began to turn on him, the billionaire fired several warning shots.

The problem with these SO CALLED conservative republicans is; They would rather clinton to be president than Trump or Cruz! One of the biggest problems in Washington is; the LOBBYIST!
I agree with you but I really thought the biggest problem in Washing were the lifetime politicians

I think the GOP is already considering Mitt Romney. I'm going to stick with Trump no matter what! He's the only Back Bone I've seen here.
Duh...that is why flake and mcpain had romney here in Mesa, Az Saturday......made me want to puke.
Who ever thinks that Voters have to vote party lines has been lied to. My vote follow's Trump.
Problem with that in Arizona. It's either party lines or you don't get to vote in the primary. Talk about telling people what they can do or not do.
Reworded, if you are not nice to me I will take the voters away from you and I can do it because you don,t represent anyone except the establishment and i do.
