NOTE TO BEN CARSON, SOME ONE CALLING ANOTHER CA CHILD MOLESTER IS NOT JUST POLITICS …
Wow, former Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson admitted that Trump attacking him and even calling him a child molester worked. Carson stated that the attacks of person distraction did work to an extent and some people must have believed him. Carson also went on to say he chalked it up to politics. REALLY BEN? Sorry, this is not politics, its disgusting. Which makes Ben Carson’s endorsement of Trump even more surprising. It was not the Cruz campaign’s so-called lies that Carson was getting out of the race that cost Carson votes in Iowa as Trump railed on, it was Trump’s viscous attacks on Carson’s character. The fact that Carson never fought back on such hideous comments was puzzling. Carson was asked this type of attack should be the political norm. Carson stated no, ”but neither should always retaliating.” Actually Ben, this was worth fighting back over. Americans did not think that Carson was a child molester as Trump opined. What Americans thought was, if you are not going to defend your self over such vile personal attacks, how were you going to defend them?
I am not sure Mr. Carson if we want this to become the political norm and you just set a precedent for it.
After his surprising endorsement of Donald Trump, former candidate Ben Carson said Wednesday that he understands why Trump attacked him during his campaign, even calling him a child molester, saying “it did work.”
Yahoo News and Finance Anchor Bianna Golodryga asked Carson what he thought of some of Trump’s more vicious attacks against him during his time in the 2016 race, citing when Trump insulted Carson’s intelligence and questioning whether or not he was a child molester. The retired neurosurgeon chalked it up to politics.
“He said it was political, he was concerned about the fact that he couldn’t shake me,” Carson said. “I understand, you know, politics, and particularly the politics of personal distraction. You have to admit to some degree that it did work. A lot of people believed him.”
Golodryga asked if this type of attack should become the norm and if, by Carson’s logic, she should teach her son to do the same as Trump did.
“It shouldn’t become status quo,” Carson said. “But neither should always retaliating.”
Should this come as a shock from the man who wrote “The Art of the Deal?”
Well who didn’t see this coming? Dr. Ben Carson revealed on Newsmax TV Monday that he will work in Donald Trump’s administration. Well what did anyone expect after Carson ended his presidential run and the suddenly endorsed Republican front-runner Donald J. Trump? Obviously he was promised something for his endorsement, especially considering some of the vile words that Trump said about the mild mannered Ben Carson. Who could blame Trump for wanting a good man like Carson in his cabinet, I would want him. More importantly, who is surprised, this is what the Trumpster does, he makes deals. If it turns out this is what pushes Trump over the top in Ohio, it just makes the deal simply brilliant.
Dr. Ben Carson revealed on Newsmax TV Monday that he will work in Donald Trump’s administration — at least in an “advisory capacity” — if the Republican presidential front-runner is elected to the White House.
But Carson, a retired pediatric neurosurgeon who recently endorsed Trump after dropping out of the race of the GOP nomination, declined to say exactly in what capacity he will serve or whether it’s a cabinet position.
“I do believe, and certainly in my discussions with Donald Trump, he does love America and he does want to be successful. He will surround himself with very good people,” Carson told “The Steve Malzberg Show.”
Asked whether he will be one of those people, Carson responded:
“I will be doing things as well … Certainly in an advisory capacity [in Trump's administration].”
Carson said Trump’s decision to bring him into the presidential fold came after he sat down with the billionaire developer to talk about the future.
As to whether his expertise in medicine or education will be tapped, Carson was mum.
Honestly, my only fear with Trump is that he will make deals with Pelosi and Schumer. I want him to enforce his will upon them, not make deals. If Trump is elected president that will most likely mean he would also have a Republican Senate and House. If that is the case, you don’t make deals, you look to reverse the disastrous 8 yeas of Obama and that does not include make deals with far left Dems.
Former Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson plans on endorsing Donald Trump. Carson, who just last week suspended his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination, plans to endorse Trump on Friday. Hmm … wonder what position Ben Carson would get in a Trump Administration? Last night during the 107th Republican debate on CNN, Trump referenced that Carson would be endorsing him. Talk about your Odd Couples. Could there be two candidates farther apart in style? I have to say that Ben Carson must have the thickest skin ever of anyone running for president or The Donald made him an offer he could not refuse. Remember when Trump likens Carson’s ‘pathology’ to that of a child molester during previous debates? Really Ben, this is who you would endorse?
This is obviously a key endorsement and coming right ahead of the Ohio and Florida primaries. A key endorsement indeed.
Conservative favorite Ben Carson, who last week suspended his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination, plans to endorse Donald Trump on Friday morning, according to two people familiar with his thinking.
The endorsement, perhaps the most high-profile nod for Trump since New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie backed him, was finalized Thursday morning when Carson met with Trump at Mar-a-Lago, the luxury club owned by the Republican front-runner, the people said. The sources requested anonymity to discuss private conversations.
Friday’s announcement will also take place at the club in Palm Beach, Fla., where the onetime rivals will appear alongside one another at a news conference.

INTERESTING SHAKE UP IN IOWA POLLS …
As reported at CBS News, Donald Trump has returned to the top spot in Iowa at 30%. Surprisingly, Conservative Sen. Ted Cruz (TX-R) has surged into second place with 21% and thanks to the racist and bias MSM, Ben Carson has slipped to third place with 19%. According to the polls, since last month, Ted Cruz has gained ground, while Ben Carson has lost ground, among some key voting groups in Iowa: evangelicals, Tea Party supporters, those who are very conservative and older voters. However, what is still trending is that all 3 candidates are considered non-establishment GOP political outsiders.
Make no mistake about it, the liberal MSM has performed a hit on Ben Carson as the Democrat media complex and Democratic party cannot afford to have Ben Carson as the GOP presidential candidate. It would forever destroy the Democrat talking point that the GOP is racist. Once again just showing the media bias that exists, because had the media gone after and questioned Barack Obama even 25% of how they have gone after Carson, Obama would never have been elected in 2008.
Donald Trump has returned to the lead in Iowa while Ted Cruz has now surged past Ben Carson into second place. Carson has slipped from a first-place tie into third.
While Iowa’s Republicans generally feel Trump is ready to be commander-in-chief, Cruz scores even better on this measure, boosted by support from very conservative and Tea Party Iowans who feel he is ready to assume the post. That’s more than say so about Trump, Carson, Rubio and Jeb Bush.
Since last month, Ted Cruz has gained ground — and Ben Carson has lost ground — among some key voting groups in Iowa: evangelicals, Tea Party supporters, those who are very conservative and older voters. And while Trump still leads among some of these groups, it’s Cruz who is ahead among the very conservative, and Trump leads Cruz by just two points among evangelical voters.
Cruz’s move has come directly at the expense of Carson, as nearly one-quarter of his voters switched.
THERE APPEARS TO BE A NEW GOP FRONT RUNNER …
According to a NBC/WSJ poll, the ultimate outsider and anti-establishment presidential candidate Ben Carson has surged into the lead with 29%, followed by Donald Trump at 23%, Marco Rubio at 11% Ted Cruz at 10% and Jeb Bush at 8%. Also, Carson polls at 50% as to who Republican voters select as their first or second choice. It is becoming apparent in many polls that Carson is trending to be the front-runner for the GOP. Even though, most national polls have shown Trump comfortably ahead in the race for the Republican presidential nomination since July, Carson has recently made strong strides in Iowa polls and some national ones. Also, according to the Politico, Carson is making huge strides in campaign fundraising.
However, how long will it be before the Democrat media complex begin their assault on Carson? Something the liberal MSM never did with Barack Obama when he ran in 2008 or 2012. And will they be called racist for attacking him as many were when they criticized Obama’s policies and liberal agenda?
Ben Carson has surged into the lead of the Republican presidential race, getting support from 29 percent of GOP primary voters, according to a brand-new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
That’s the highest percentage any GOP candidate has obtained so far in the survey.
Carson’s 29 percent is followed by Donald Trump at 23 percent, Marco Rubio at 11 percent, Ted Cruz at 10 percent and Jeb Bush at 8 percent. These findings are similar to a New York Times/CBS poll released last week, which also showed Carson in first place in the national GOP contest.
Ben Carson Surging in National Polls … CBS News/New York Times Poll Has Carson Ahead of Trump, 26% to 22%
CARSON SURGING IN NATIONAL POLLS AS WELL …
It would appear that political outsider and former neurosurgeon Ben Carson has the political momentum in the polls. According to a recent CBS News/New York Times poll, Carson now leads Donald Trump, 26% to 22%. Sure its early and there is a long way to go, but this is significant. It is the first time that Carson leads Trump in a national poll. Earlier this month, Carson took the lead over Trump in Iowa in three significant polls, the Des Moines Register-Bloomberg poll, a Quinnipiac University survey and a Monmouth University poll.
Ben Carson has surpassed Donald Trump and now narrowly leads the Republican field in the race for the nomination in the latest national CBS News/New York Times Poll.
Twenty-six percent of Republican primary voters back Carson, giving him a four-point edge over Trump (22 percent). Support for Carson has quadrupled since August.
The rest of the Republican presidential candidates lag far behind in single digits. Marco Rubio is now in third place (eight percent), followed by Jeb Bush (seven percent) and Carly Fiorina (seven percent). All other candidates are at four percent or lower.
Carson has made gains across many key Republican groups. In a reversal from earlier this month, he is now ahead of Trump among women and is running neck and neck with him among men. Carson’s support among evangelicals has risen and he now leads Trump by more than 20 points with this group.
Carson performs well among conservative Republicans and those who identify as Tea partiers. Trump does well with moderates and leads Carson among those without a college degree – although Trump had a larger advantage with non-college graduates earlier this month.
New York Times: Ben Carson Edges Ahead Nationally in Times/CBS News Poll.
Ben Carson has taken a narrow lead nationally in the Republican presidential campaign, dislodging Donald J. Trump from the top spot for the first time in months, according to a New York Times/CBS News survey released on 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.
With just a couple days ahead of the next Republican primary presidential debate, Ben Carson has surged into the lead in Iowa.
According to a recent Monmouth University poll, Ben Carson has taken a commanding 14 point lead over The Donald in Iowa. Carson is currently in first place at 32% followed by Trump at 18%. This is quite a turnaround from previous Monmouth polls. Carson is ahead among all demographic groups in Iowa, including Republicans who describe themselves as “somewhat” and “very conservative,” as well as self-described moderates, evangelicals, non-evangelicals, men and women. There appears to be a swing in Iowa as this is now the third poll showing Carson ahead in Iowa. Earlier, a Des Moines Register-Bloomberg poll released last week showed Carson with a 9 point lead, and a Quinnipiac University survey found Carson ahead by 8.
Ben Carson has overtaken Donald Trump in Iowa, surging to a 14-point lead, according to a new poll.
A Monmouth University survey released on Monday found Carson taking 32 percent support in Iowa, followed by Trump at 18 percent.
That’s a 9-point gain for Carson from the same poll in late August, while Trump has fallen five points in that time.
The poll found Carson with the best favorability rating in the field, with an astounding 84 percent of Iowa Republicans having a positive view of him, compared to only 7 percent who view him negatively.
Imagine, just imagine if Ben Carson won the GOP nomination and became president. Talk about the worst nightmare for Democrats, liberals and the MSM, how could they continue the myth and lie that Republicans are racist?
