(CNN) – Business mogul Donald Trump is making clear he had nothing to do with a mysterious poll in New Hampshire that, according to TIME Magazine, asked Granite State voters about a potential Trump presidential bid.
"I never heard of this poll but I'm anxious to find out what it says. I do not know about a poll taken in New Hampshire," Trump said Monday on CNN's "American Morning."
The comments came a day after TIME's Mark Halperin reported New Hampshire residents had fielded calls in September in which they were asked about several potential 2012 Republican contenders, including Trump. Voters were also asked a series of background questions on their opinion of the famous Wall Street billionaire, including whether they were aware he has donated to Democratic candidates in the past.
News of the poll immediately prompted speculation Trump himself may be considering a GOP presidential run, a move that has the potential of turning an already wide-open race upside down.
But speaking on "American Morning," Trump suggested a presidential run isn't in the cards.
"It's not something I talked about or consider, but somebody has to do something or this country is not going to be a very great country for long," he said.
