Poll Context: Donald Trump revealed in an interview with the Washington Post that his wife, Melania, did not want him to run for president.
“She said, ‘We have such a great life. Why do you want to do this?’”
“I said, I sort of have to do it, I think. I really have to do it.’ … I could do such a great job,” he continued. Trump said Melania later told him, “I hope you don’t do it, but if you run, you’ll win.”
Melania Trump has been elusive on the campaign trail since Trump announced his candidacy in June.
The Republican front-runner often jokes that Melania is his pollster and tells him to act “more presidential.”
