• RawStory.com

Donald Trump has surged to the top of Republican 2012 polls after wholeheartedly embracing and vigorously touting in recent weeks the conspiracy theory that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States.

But the billionaire real estate mogul and reality TV star -- who insists he's serious about running for president -- has frequently changed his political leanings and policy positions on issues of interest to GOP voters.

Here are 10 past quotes that could sink Trump's hopes of capturing the Republican nomination.

1) "I probably identify more as Democrat."
--Interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer, March 2004

2) "I've been around for a long time. And it just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats than the Republicans."
--Interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer, March 2004

3) "Nancy — you're the best. Congrats. Donald."
--Handwritten note to Speaker Nancy Pelosi, January 2007

4) "Bush is probably the worst president in the history of the United States."
