ben carsonBen Carson has surged to the lead over former frontrunner Donald Trump, according to a new national poll:

A NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released early Tuesday says Carson grabbed 29 percent support in the poll, compared to Donald Trump’s 23 percent. The poll was conducted both before and after last week’s third presidential debate in Colorado.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio took 11 percent, followed by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz with 10 percent and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush at 8 percent.

Other GOPers lag way behind: former tech CEO Carly Fiorina, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie each have 3 percent, while Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is at 2 percent.

As for the Democrats, Hillary Clinton is leading Bernie Sanders by double digits, 62 percent to 31 percent.

The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percentage points, but it appears that Carson is now the Republican to beat.

    A MESSAGE FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP:

    FIX NEWS PERFORMS SUBTLE SABOTAGE ON YOU. NOT AS OBVIOUS AS NOBODY BUT CLINTON NBC. ALL OF THEM ARE BAITING YOU WITH CARSON POLLS. THEY WANT YOU TO ATTACK CARSON. STAY AWAY FROM THAT TRAP. SAY NICE THINGS ABOUT CARSON. PRAISE HIS FAITH COMMENT.

    STARTING TODAY ACT LIKE A PRESIDENT. 1- RAISE FUNDS FOR A PRIVATE VA HOSPITAL. 2- ADOPT THE FAMILIES OF THE FORT LEAVENWORTH 10 WHO OBAMA PUT IN PRISON FOR FIGHTING FOR THEIR COUNTRY. YET HE TELLS US DRUG DEALING IS NOT A CRIME. THEN HE OPENS UP A NEW DRUG ROUTE INTO THE USA FROM CUBA. HE NEEDS THE DEALERS BACK ON THE STREETS TO HANDLE THE INCREASE IN ADDICTS. ONE IN FIVE AMERICAN FAMILIES HAVE SUFFERED DRUG TRAGEDY. NEED HELP HOLLER.

    THE RUSSIANS DON’T WANT THE PIPELINE, IRAN DOESN’T WANT THE PIPELINE, THE MIDDLE EAST DOESN’T WANT THE PIPELINE AND THE DEMOCRAT/ COMMUNIST PARTY DOESN’T WANT THE PIPELINE. NOW THE CANADIAN COMMUNIST PARTY DOESN’T WANT THE PIPELINE. BUT AMERICA NEEDS THAT PIPELINE TO BE STRONG FINANCIALLY AND MILITARILY.

    THE GOAL OF THE COMMUNIST EPA IS TO DESTROY EVERYTHING THAT MADE AMERICA GREAT. THE NUMBER ONE TARGET FOR THE LAST 30 YEARS HAS BEEN AMERICAN INDUSTRY. JUST LOOK AT OUR SPACE PROGRAM. RUSSIA WON’T TAKE US TO THE SPACE STATION ANYMORE.

    TODAY POLITICIANS ARE BEGGING OUR ONCE NATIONAL PRIDE INDUSTRIES WHO NO LONGER HAVE A STRONG LOYAL US CONNECTION TO COME HOME AND BRING THEIR MONEY BACK SO THEY CAN TAX IT AND KEEP THE DEMOCRAT BOOT ON THEIR NECK. DON’T FORGET THE EXTRA LAW SUITS AND FINES. LOOK AT WHAT THE EPA IS DOING TO VOLKSWAGON. NEVER GM THE DEMOCRAT/COMMUNIST SUBSIDY. WATCH WHAT THE GERMANS DO TO AMERICAN COMPANIES IN GERMANY OR WHAT THEY DON’T DO.

    WE NEED A PRESIDENT WHO WORKS IN THE REAL WORLD NOT THAT MAKE BELIEVE CHARADE IN DC. IT HAS TO BE EL TRUMPO. THE MOST FEARED QUESTION IN WASHINGTON ASKED BY PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL BE WHAT DO YOU DO HERE?
