If you're unenthusiastic about the options available for the 2012 presidential nomination, Snooki feels your pain.
As she relayed at a recent press conference - for the launch of Team Snooki Boxing, the Huffington Post tells us - she's unimpressed. The guy she wants to put her "Jersey Shore" influence behind (millions of people do watch her pickles-and-booze-fueled antics on the reality show, after all, although less at the start of the fifth season than usual) isn't even a contender.
Not at the moment, anyway.
"I thought Trump was gonna run," Snooki told reporters. "But he's not, right? I would endorse him and vote for him."
The enterprising reality star shouldn't give up hope just yet: At the end of December, Trump changed his voter registration from Republican to "unaffiliated," thereby "[preserving] his right to run for president as an independent if he's not satisfied with who the Republicans nominate."
Now that she's come out as a clear supporter, maybe that's all Trump needs to hop in the election game.
