US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he would get out of the race for the White House only in the event of falling behind the rivals in poll figures.

“If I fell behind badly, I would certainly get out. I’m in this for the long haul,” he said on Thursday.

“Well, I’m not a masochist,” Trump said. “Right now I’m leading every poll, and in most cases big. That’s good. If that changed, if I was like some of these people at 1 percent and 2 percent, there’s no reason to continue forward. If I fell behind badly, I would certainly get out.”

Trump, however, said he does not have to worry about that quite yet.

“I’m in this for the long haul,” he added. “That doesn’t mean someday I don’t wake up and I say, ‘Wow, I’m really tanking.’ Well, if I tank, sure, I go back to the business. Why wouldn’t I?”

“Right now, I’m leading every poll, in most cases, big,” he said. “I’m leading Iowa, I’m leading New Hampshire, I’m leading South Carolina, I’m leading everything.”

According to the RealClearPolitics, the average of recent national polls, Trump is at the top with 23 percent, ahead of rival Ben Carson’s 16 percent. The two GOP candidates are followed by Carly Fiorina (12 percent), Sen. Marco Rubio (10 percent) and Jeb Bush (9 percent).

    wouldnt the main stream media love to see trump drop out of the race!it is an article based on their wishful thinking,I think unless trump does something real stupid and stop fighting for america I think he is here to stay for the long haul.his numbers are higher than the 2nd and 3rd candidates behind the one right behind him combined and 8 points higher than the very next challenger.only the main stream media in their total bias would run an article about the one who is leading the race to give the impression that the leading candidate was thinking of dropping out of the race.if this were their favorite democratic candidate you would hear nothing but how he would be unbeatable with his numbers even if the numbers were much closer
