“Who knows if I did the right thing? I am not see­ing a lot out of the Repub­li­can can­di­dates. I can’t rule out any­thing. The coun­try is so im­por­tant and it’s so vi­tal we choose the right per­son and at this mo­ment I don’t see that per­son,” Don­ald Trump told Fox News on May 23, af­ter in­sist­ing 24 hours ear­lier that he ab­so­lutely, pos­i­tively was not go­ing to run for the White House.

The re­cent com­ings and go­ings of Repub­li­can hope­fuls in the pres­i­den­tial derby has given the bil­lion­aire pause. Along with ev­ery­one else, ap­par­ently. A Na­tional Re­view on­line sur­vey of some 4,500 read­ers finds that 51 per­cent are “de­pressed” by the po­ten­tial field of Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial can­di­dates, 31 per­cent are “in­dif­fer­ent” and a rare op­ti­mistic 18 per­cent are “ex­cited.”
