Ben Carson Edging Close to Front-Runner Trump in Latest Iowa Poll

by
August 30, 2015

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson has emerged as a leading Republican presidential candidate in Iowa and is closing in on frontrunner Donald Trump in the state that hosts the first 2016 nomination balloting contest.

The latest Bloomberg Politics/Des Moines Register Iowa Poll shows billionaire Trump with the support of 23 percent of likely Republican caucus participants, followed by Carson at 18 percent. When first and second choices are combined, Carson is tied with Trump.

Trump finds himself in a vastly better position than when the previous Iowa Poll was taken. He has become a credible presidential candidate to many likely Republican caucus-goers. The real estate mogul is rated favorably by 61 percent and unfavorably by 35 percent, an almost complete reversal since the Iowa Poll in May. He finds his highest ratings among those planning to attend the caucuses for the first time (69 percent) and limited-government Tea Party activists (73 percent). Just 29 percent say they could never vote for him, a number cut in half since May.

    Ben Carson is amazing!!! I would be proud to call him Mr. President!!! This is a very exciting time on American history, can’t decide on Carson/Cruz or Cruz/Carson! I’m not ruling out Trump or Fiorina at this point though. One thing I think we can all agree on , or most, is that it’s not business as usual, and we ain’t gonna take it no more! No more Washington!!

    I know that it is WAY too early and Politics Change faster than BHO-ZO lights up POT..and does not LIE. but Imagine a CARSON/Fiorina Ticket…..Can you see the Donkeys from the Progressive anarchist Party go …………. well fill the Blanks but I predict so many bunched Panties and Incoherent Statements from these IDIOTS to fill the Pages of many Comic books!!!

    I’m sorry, but how does a head line about Ben Carson degenerate into another plug for Trump? Dr. Carson is brilliant, has management experience and a true conservative spirit. I really like him but I can be honest enough to say I can’t see him getting the nomination. The media (and I mean ALL of them) are pushing Trump so hard that everyone else is being drowned out, Whoever gets the eventual nomination for the GOP ticket, I pray that they will win and they would be wise to ask Dr. Carson to step up and be the Surgeon General.

      Carson is still getting known as you notice,bc you are reading about him and looking at his numbers!! The reason Trump is getting all the attention is def not bc the media LIKES him I think most dislike him. It’s bc HE HAS A BIG MOUTH!!! Hard to ignore it!!! Dr. Ben is soft spoken, hes getting his attention and will get plenty more! Not to worry!

        DO YOU REALL THINK THE PEOPLE WANT ANOTHER BLACK PRESIDENT? I DON’T. ALL YOUR SEEING IS HIS PERSONA. THE BLACK CULTURE IS SO DIFFERANT FROM WHITES AND ASIANS, THEY BECOME POWEER CRAZY.

      • Nina

        A little RACIST are we Paul?!?!?! What people don’t want is another Barak Obama!!!!!! Do you know anything about this man that you can write him off bc of the color of his skin?? That’s just plain ignorant!! Tell you one thing, bet he can spell better than you!! People like you are sickening!! You probably voted for Obozo!!!

    • Paul Dragotto

      READ THIS!!! WE DO NOT NEED ANOTHE BLACK IN THE WHITE HOUSE. BEN IS A GOOD GUY , BUT YOUR JUST SEEING HIS PERSONA. TRUMP DOES NOT MINCE WORDS. HE TELLS IT LIKE IT IS AND HE DOES NOT WEAR A TUPE. HE COMES ALL HIS HAIR FOWARD. I SENT HIM A FACEBOOK MESSAGE ABOUT HIS AHIR LOOKING LIKE A TUPE. THEN JUST THE OTHER DAY HE HAD A GAL COME UP TO THE PODEIUM AND LOOK AT HIS HAIR. SHE DID NOT TOUCH IT, BUT SAID IT’S REAL. HE GOT MY MESSAGE !! THATS HOW I COMMUNICATE WITH POLITICIANS. BACK TO BEN! HE WOULD MAKE A BETTER SURGEON GENERAL, THAN AS A PRESIDENT.

    My bottom line is this. I don’t want another bureaucrat in the White House. I want someone who speaks with passion and candor and actually cares about America and American values. I want a Manager who will assemble a team that will solve problems and act. And act now.

    • The redhawk

      and NO Professional Politician will EVER do that!!!!

  • libsrtheh8ters

    Sorry but I do not get the Carson thing. He has back tracked on immigration before Trump made it ok not to champion Mexico sending its uneducated poverty stricken & criminal population to the U.S. & he has not stated any coherent policy of any kind. I would hate to see conservatives embracing a candidate based solely on his skin color. Cruz has the same Christian views, great policy stances & is brilliant.
