Ben Carson is a serious candidate right now if you look at his ability to raise money and his rise in the polls. Honestly, I’m surprised, but it’s a pleasant surprise.
His latest campaign ad is also a surprise to a lot of people.
This is Carson’s first attempt to go after young black voters. Some delusional Democrats say Carson has a real problem because young blacks can’t connect with him. If that’s really the case, the problem isn’t Carson’s, it belongs to the black community. Ben Carson, and people like him, should be the role models for young blacks not guys with booking pictures like this.
Right now Carson is starting to scare the far left.
A new Quinnipiac University national poll has surprising numbers for Ben Carson supporters: the Republican frontrunner could beat the Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton in a general election, and it might just be with the help of African-American voters.
The poll poses the question for potential voters: Who would you vote for if the race was between Hillary Clinton and Ben Carson? The numbers show Carson winning with 50 percent versus Clinton’s 40 percent, but it’s the African-American numbers that are truly interesting, at 19 percent support for Carson against Clinton’s 73 percent. That level of support would be the first time a Republican has seen double-digit support in the African-American vote since 2004 with George W. Bush.
Interestingly, Carson has also picked up numbers among women voters, with 45 percent for Carson and 44 percent for Clinton among women polled.
Go Ben Go!
