Donald Trump certainly does like to cite poll numbers, and he’s tweeting today that a new poll shows that a strong majority of his supporters would stick with him if he decided to ditch the GOP and run as an independent; something he quietly threatened to do at the very first Republican presidential debate.

After his remarks about banning Muslim immigration at a rally last night, the heads of the Republican Party in New Hampshire, Iowa, and South Carolina almost immediately denounced Trump in tweets.

Trump did sign a pledge not to run as an independent, though. So, is he saying he might rip up that agreement and leave the party, or is he just reminding the party of his influence?
