Carson edges out Trump in national poll

14

trumpcarsonThere’s more bad polling news for the Donald, this time on a national level. Dr. Ben Carson has taken a narrow lead over the billionaire real estate mogul for the first time in months, according to a New York Times/CBS News survey released Tuesday:

Mr. Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, is the choice of 26 percent of Republican primary voters, the poll found, while Mr. Trump now wins support from 22 percent, although the difference lies within the margin of sampling error.

The survey is the first time that Mr. Trump has not led all candidates since The Times and CBS News began measuring presidential preferences at the end of July.

No other candidate comes close to Mr. Carson and Mr. Trump. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida received 8 percent while former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida and Carly Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard chief executive, are each the choice of 7 percent of Republican primary voters.

Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, former Gov. Mike Huckabee of Arkansas and Gov. John R. Kasich of Ohio each received support from 4 percent of those surveyed.

Carson has gained five percentage points and Trump has lost five percentage points since another CBS survey taken in early October. However, Tuesday’s survey found that Trump’s supporters are more steadfast than Carson’s:

A majority of Trump supporters, 55 percent, said their minds were made up. But 80 percent of Carson backers said it was too early to say for sure that they would eventually support him.

Overall, only 28 percent of respondents indicated they had made up their mind on a candidate to support. In other words, the field is still wide open.

    Trump is still the one that does not owe anything to anyone..He is a strong businessman and a successful one that our country needs to direct us away from debt…Trump in 2016

  • usmcltc

    The liberals/Democrats have been playing the “race card” and blaming any criticism of Obama on the fact that Obama is black (biracial). I wonder what they would have to say if Carson is the Republican candidate.

  • JOSEPH MORRIS

    I DON’T BELIEVE THE POLLS AT ALL, BECAUSE THEY DON’T LIKE DONALD J TRUMP WHO IS MORE OF A MAN TO LEAD THIS COUNTRY OUT OF THE CHAOS WERE IN…. BEN CARSON IS A NICE GUY AND THAT’S IT…. WE DON’T NEED A NICE GUY IN THE WHITE HOUSE… TRUMP WILL BE THE ONE WHO BEAT HILLARY IN THE DEBATES AND HE SAYS IT AS IT IS, LIKE HIM OR NOT…. NEW YORK TIMES AND CBS FUDGED THE POLLS PERCENTAGE BY GIVING CARSON A 4% LEAD OVER DONALD J TRUMP….. GO TRUMP/CRUZ 2016!!!!

    • frawgeyz

      I was thinking that perhaps this is the new plot to unseat Don. Discourage so as to defeat. They have tried everything else.

    More liberal propaganda, expect more of these bullshit polls, Trump is crushing it and the media and the liberals are afraid, they will do anything they can to get Trump to drop out, it won’t work and he will be the winning candidate

      RE ; – [ More liberal propaganda…]

      Not only the liberal-democrat sector , but others too ,….their sold-out RINO type republicans associates form the rancid establishment GOP….they are all together on this…..basically, …virtually everyone in / from the rancid sold-out RINO type GOP they all resent tremendously that an individual – DonaldTrump – (not a corrupted politician as they all are) is widely getting all the support from the average any day Joe and Jane in the country.

    • frawgeyz

      “”…. they will do anything they can to get Trump to back out…..” Or to discourage those who would vote for him to look elsewhere.

  • ken

    do not put another black man in our white house one was enough

  • I DON’T BELIEVE ANYTHING COMING OUT OF THE COMMUNIST MEDIA. THEY CREATED A NATIONAL SPIN WITH THE LEADING HEADLINE CARSON BEATS TRUMP. LEADING THE PEOPLE TO BELIEVE IT WAS ALL POLLS. EVEN FIX NEWS PULLED THE SAME MISLEADING STUNT. CARSON MAY HAVE THE LEAD IN IOWA BUT IT IS A COURTESY VOTE TO A REAL NICE GUY. THEY DID THE SAME TO SANTORUM.

    WE NEED A CRUSHER TO DEAL WITH RUSSIA. TRUMP WILL PULL THE LEGAL LATINO VOTE. SENIORS WILL BENEFIT, THE MILITARY WILL BENEFIT, THE TAXPAYER WILL BENEFIT. OBAMA CARE IS JUST KICKING IN. IN MY COUNTY BLUE CROSS BLUE SHIELD JUST DROPPED ALL OF STATEN ISLAND. CUSTOMERS WHO VOTED FOR OBAMA HAD BLUE CROSS BLUE SHIELD OVER 20 YEARS.

    WE NEED A DEAL MAKER NOT A GRAVE MARKER.

    By all the neutrinos in the vast universe!….the democrats and the republicans are really after this man like if he would be Public Enemy #1….they will stop at nothing;….here is one of the latest pirouette;…

    And they put the so called ‘polls’ / findings / ‘their numbers’,… out there for everyone to see;…

    RE ; – [ Poll: Carson opens up 14-point lead over Trump in Iowa ]

    http://www.breitbart.com/video/2015/10/26/trump-i-dont-believe-im-really-behind-carson-in-iowa-polling/
    Does anyone out there is swallowing this one?

    Everyone out there with an IQ of – even- 90 could understand that this is on base of the so called ‘polls’;…..and what polls are?….tools that anyone can manipulate to drive the thinking of masses one way or another;….let’s be simple on this, shall we?

    There is a words for this – fabrication;…..others words that fit well;…alteration, disinformation / manipulation, deceptions…..more in plain every day language….lies.

    You see,..liberals and their RINOs associates are working on that.,,,,they will try to present Carson as presidential candidate from the GOP and since everyone knows the man is not match for Ms Clinton?….the lady will take presidency.

    Does anyone out there remember 2012?…well, if not?….just look it up.

    They did this maneuver with Romney back in 2012 in order to’ re-elect’ Obama.

    They were chanting Romney as to be in tight proximity to Obama,… and when the election results came out?…Obama ‘won’…so the massive vote fraud that took place was not perceived by the american populace…and they accepted the Obama re-election wining as result of ….’tight race’.

    Similar plot is taking place place now in a very crafty way….and the american electorate that do not take time to do any type of investigation / research about politicians nor about issues may be fooled once more.

    This is a plot that liberals and RINOs have.

    They will attempt anything, and everything to destroy Donald Trump for the goal is to infuse / force to the american people to accept Hillary Clinton as president….and then she will give the last mortal punch to our country.

    Let’s be simple,…here is the thing;…

    Although reality is that Donald Trump has solid support of the American electorate at large? the main stream media – periodicals, magazines. the tv tabloids ( MSNBC, CNN, C-SPAN1&2, ABC, CBS…and the rest…even a portion of FOX News Agency,…including virtually the entire sold-out GOP establishment…all of those are trying massively to undermine the truth presenting a propaganda of ‘Trump is slowing on polls’….’Trump is tight here and there, and over there’….etc, in order to disencourage the American public…in others words deception / disinformation – bloody lies are all over.

    Virtually everyone in / from the rancid sold-out RINO type GOP they all resent tremendously that an individual – DonaldTrump – (not a corrupted politician as they all are) is widely getting all the support from the average any day Joe and Jane in the country.

    So , now they are biffing-up the Ben Carson factor…they are very crafty, resourceful let’s say also…smart;…

    We all, have , should , have, must to be careful about Ben Carson for the man could be ‘New Trojan Horse ‘ – placed this time in the republican ranks – for a continuity of the train of action that the liberal-democrat sector started with Barack Obama.

    Caution is of essence.

    The situation is so precarious that the sold-out GOP is helping on this,…. and rest assure that the RINO type establishment would prefer MS Clinton for president just to avoid Donald Trump (for they hate the man all the way to the last bone)….so they will help the liberal(libertines)-democrat sector to accomplish this……just wait for it….nobody out there should be surprised.

    Are we all clear on this?

    • frawgeyz

      I especially agree with the fact that Carson could never fess up against hildabeast. The Donald, on the other hand would most definitely give her a run for her lies!

  • dan9el

    Does anyone one of you out there did some research or investigation on Ben Carson?…even a short one?…yes?….no?

    Well, let’s take a quick look at just a thing or two…..just to trigger some curiousity or interest, shall we?

    Although this sounds kind of good;…

    Caution to take about this man….is paramount.
    Input anyone?

    • frawgeyz

      I find the article at freedomoutpost particularly interesting. The truth is that many have forgotten the flip flopping.

    I knew it was just a matter of time until the American people would see what a blow hard Trump is.
