@revelette2,
Maybe it's because I don't do polls. I'm conservative; they're wacko.

@McGentrix,
Yeah. Hillary is corrupt. Trump is a joke. I'd be really worried about Trump representing the office. He's taken the process down to an embarrassingly low standard.

Wow, he is in full meltdown mode. It seems like every story he's told in his books is made up. Saved a bunch of white students during riots after MLK was killed? Not a single person can remember that. Took a class where the instructor awarded him with money for being the only honest student. No such course exists. Then there is this interview on CNN where he freaks out about a reporter asking him about his words. I'm not sure this guy is making it to Iowa.

@engineer,
I deem you winner of the correct Carson Prezidon't analysis.

I can't decide it he's just a rampant liar who didn't have the foresight that anyone might fact-check him, or if there's a little cognitive impairment and he really believes these things.

I find myself feeling sorry for him. And scared as **** that he was #1 in the GOP sweepstakes for president. Sheesh.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump stated that fellow Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson’s story about his violent past and subsequent redemption has “something very strange in it” adding, “You don’t get better. You know what makes you better? Pills make you about better” and “Do you think that’s the right temperament to be president? I don’t think so” in an interview broadcast on Friday’s “O’Reilly Factor” on the Fox News Channel.

Trump stated, [relevant exchange begins around 2:25] “if you think about what Carson’s saying, he hit his mother over the head with a hammer. He hit a friend in the face with a lock. He tried to kill somebody with a knife, and he said he suffers from pathological disease, okay? When you suffer from pathological disease, you’re not really getting better unless you start taking lots of pills and things.”

After host Bill O’Reilly protested, “He was a kid.” Trump responded, “Well, and then he went into a bathroom, and all of a sudden he found religion. Uh, okay.”

After O’Reilly again said Carson was a kid, Trump stated, “I’m surprised you’re so gullible.”

Trump continued, “He’s trying to prove that he did it, in order to have credibility. Who would want to prove this?”

@farmerman,
As Lash had previously written...what happened to Carson's brain or behavior? I'm not following this race or the players too closely by any means. I knew he was a brilliant doctor and separated conjoined twins, etc...but what happened to his thinking? Whatever did happen, did this happen recently?

Is congenital lying now a job requirement? I'm not going to ask if the bar can be set any lower 'cause I may see something worse that I won't like.

I am getting Ben Carson for POTUS commercials when I pull up Birdy videos on Youtube.

Impressive. And they are really good commercials.

This kind of kick in the pants just goes to show how badly the pro's (the elite) have sucked for a long time. All one needs to do to understand why Trump and Carson are doing so well is to have enough wisdom to notice how much better the work is from Carson and Trump than everyone else on the R side is putting in. This is not rocket science. The R elite are of course whining, but the main problem is that their work SUCKS!

Anyone who thinks that Trump and Carson are going to go away because the voters have not been serious and will get serious in the next months does not know their ass from a whole in the ground.

Edit of my last post: Cruz is showing signs that he gets it too. This race on the R side is down to Cruz, Carson and Trump. No one else matters.

A lot of people agree with you but I think we are voting for the man this time, not the resume and not the policy positions. I dont think Rubio is seen as a guy who might be able to get anything done. And what was supposed to be his great appeal, his biography and immigration views, get less advantageous by the day as the mood of the nation shifts. The fact the journalists and D's like him the best is also a huge problem in the primary, though it might be good for him if he was the candidate.

Take note that in spite of generally good debate reviews and the journalists going out of their way to sell him Rubio is going nowhere. Cruz on the other hand is doing good things, and he has not even tried to turn on the jets yet. There is no way he does not have a trick or two in his pocket.

PPP's first look at the Republican Presidential race nationally in six weeks finds that things haven't actually changed all that much since early October. Donald Trump leads the field with 26%, to 19% for Ben Carson. Trump and Carson were first and second on our last poll as well at 27% and 17% respectively. Also getting solid amounts of support are Ted Cruz at 14% and Marco Rubio at 13%. No one else in the GOP field even gets more than 5%- Jeb Bush reaches that mark followed by Carly Fiorina and Mike Huckabee at 4%, Chris Christie and John Kasich at 3%, Rand Paul at 2%, Lindsey Graham and George Pataki at 1%, and Jim Gilmore, Bobby Jindal, and Rick Santorum all at less than 1%.

There's only one candidate in the whole field who can really claim momentum compared to a month ago: that's Ted Cruz. He's doubled his support from 7% in early October to its current 14% standing. He's also seen a net 9 point improvement in his favorability rating from +20 (50/30) a month ago to now +29 (55/26). Cruz is leading the field among voters who describe themselves as 'very conservative' with 29% to 24% for Trump and 22% for Carson. On a related note he's also ahead among self described Tea Partiers with 26% to 23% each for Carson and Trump. He is definitely the candidate headed in the right direction with the right at this time.

Furthermore I expect that increasingly people will realize that Trump is a moderate, and some of the hard core conservatives will look for another options, which will be Cruz not Rubio. My guess is that this comes down to Cruz and Trump, and Trump takes it. Rubio maybe third depending upon whether he can take Carson or not.

I have been studying the GOP numbers very carefully. It is still early and many voters are still not focused but thus far developer Donald Trump remains in the lead in national, Iowa, and New Hampshire polls. I looked closely at my most recent national poll taken November 8 and 9 and Mr. Trump still has 31% support, 13 points ahead of his nearest challenger, Dr. Ben Carson. Following them are Florida Senator Marco Rubio with 8%, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush 7%, Texas Senator Ted Cruz 6%, former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina 4%, and Ohio Governor John Kasich 3%.

Reports have persisted for months that the Republican Party establishment is flummoxed over how best to damage Mr. Trump and remove him from contention. More recently, mainstream pundits have been suggesting the previously unthinkable – i.e. that Mr. Trump can actually win the nomination. Thus far, the billionaire has defied everyone and all the rules. The more outrageous his utterances, the better he seems to do in the polls. Challengers seem to come and go, but he has stayed on top. Any candidate who has dared to trash talk the former reality show star has been trashed right back one hundredfold. Negative ads are up and running by SuperPACS devoted to either other candidates or simply to his demise – but all to no avail.

Donald Trump’s show is still going on. As long as he produces outrage, he dominates the coverage. So how does anyone stop him from winning? The ultimate wisdom comes from none other than one of the vanquished candidates, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, who in delivering his campaign farewell, argued that the GOP field must be limited. There are simply too many candidates.

I think Mr. Walker spoke the truth and someone has to listen. Let’s look at those Zogby Analytics Poll numbers again. Yes, Mr. Trump’s numbers continue to be most impressive – but a lot less so when we consider that 56% prefer another candidate and 13% are still undecided. That means 69% of likely GOP primary and caucus likely voters do not choose Donald Trump. Thirty-one percent looms very large when no other candidate comes even close. But no other candidate can match Mr. Trump for saying “newsworthy” things or for grabbing the spotlight every single day. It might be a far different story if there were only a few candidates left in the race. And it seems that both the SuperPACS, conservative-leaning pundits, and fellow candidates would spend their time more constructively focusing less on Mr. Trump – he does not need more attention – and making a stronger case for limiting the number of candidates in the field.

So let me make the following proposal. Regardless of the poll numbers and the sincerity of his supporters, Dr. Carson should just leave. He is smart (as a neurosurgeon), he has a nice demeanor about him, and he prays well publicly. But he has not in any way shown any real talent as either a candidate or a leader of this nation. He has little depth on matters of government policy and gives all the appearances of making this whole thing up as he is going along. One down.

Former Governor Mike Huckabee and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum have had their place in the sun, made their credible challenges, and show neither the polling numbers nor the field operations to make the grades they have made in the past.

Former New York Governor George Pataki and South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham are merely blips on the screen, struggling at 1% or less. It has been months now and they have not shown any capacity for growth, even to earn a spot before the larger debate audience.

Governor Chris Christie had his time in 2012 and chose not run. He has had several bright moments in the debates this year but he just isn’t cutting it. He is young and can try again perhaps. That’s a total of six candidate leaving the field down to more manageable seven.

Who should remain besides Mr. Trump – and why? Messrs. Rubio and Cruz are gaining in the polls and provide voters with credible options. They also represent different wings of the party. Messrs. Bush and Kasich have proven track records – one as Governor of Florida, the other as a leader in the House and as Governor of Ohio. They are the moderate candidates and are in the mix of polling either nationwide or in early states.

Mr. Paul represents the libertarian wing of the party, has creds among younger voters, and makes the debates more lively. And Mrs. Fiorina has been a star in all of the previous debates and, while fading in more recent polls, had made some gains early on.

It would be wise for CNN to only invite these seven candidates to the next debate on December 15 – then for the pressure to begin to reduce the total down to four by the January 16 pre-Iowa debate. With voters paying closer attention, now we will all get to see how strong Mr. Trump’s support really is.

WHo do you have in mind to throw these people out of the race? Are there some brown shirts in an armory somewhere? Let me get this straight, a corporation is going to decide who gets to debate by way of what ever mood they might be in, by way of who pays them the most probably?? Are you ******* kidding me?

This is what the elite gets out of the rebellion? This is how far they are willing to go to crush it?

****. THEM!

is it any wonder that the American people have gotten to "ENOUGH!"?
