BUT I THOUGHT REPUBLICANS WERE RACIST?
According to the most recent Bloomberg Politics/Des Moines Register Iowa Poll, Ben Carson has taken a commanding lead over Donald Trump in Iowa, 28% to 19%. The retired John Hopkins neurosurgeon and current GOP presidential candidate is surging in the polls in Iowa. According to the polling data, Evangelical Christians, who represent 42% of likely Republican caucus participants in the poll, appear to be aligning behind Carson. The political outsider, Carson’s rise in the polls has also been fueled by gains with Tea Party supporters. Huh, how can that be … we have been told by a lying, bias Democrat media complex that the Tea Party was racist. Wouldn’t that be a kick in the pants to the LEFT if it was the Tea Party and conservatives who Carson road to the White House?
Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson has moved into a dominant position in Iowa, surpassing former front-runner Donald Trump as evangelical Christians begin to coalesce around him in the state that will cast the first 2016 nomination ballots.
A new Bloomberg Politics/Des Moines Register Iowa Poll shows the retired neurosurgeon is backed by 28 percent of likely Republican caucus participants, up 10 percentage points since late August. Trump is supported by 19 percent, down 4 points.
Those planning to caucus for Carson are drawn to his personal story and his status as a non-career politician, the poll shows, and they view him as someone who approaches issues with common sense and with guidance from his faith in God.
“His standing has improved in every way pollsters traditionally measure,” said J. Ann Selzer, president of West Des Moines-based Selzer & Co., which conducted the poll. “This might be a wake-up for Donald Trump.”
