A NYT/CBS Poll Crowns a New National Leader in Race for the Republican Presidential Nomination

I have said from the beginning that I’m all in for Ted Cruz. But if the nominee is Donald Trump or Ben Carson, I am good to go. One small poll put out by NYT/CBS (and who doesn’t trust those guys), puts Ben Carson ahead of Donald Trump nationally by 4 points. Either way it is good news, but color me skeptical on this. The media, the leftists and the RINOs would sooner have anyone other than Trump, so they will skew polls all over the place to sway the race. I fully expect a whole bag of dirty tricks to be unloaded on Trump, Carson and Cruz. Don’t forget that Iowa is not the end all of the race either. Last time, Santorum took Iowa and we all know how that turned out.

From Breitbart:

After more than a hundred days of leading in every national poll, a New York Times/CBS poll released Tuesday shows Dr. Ben Carson edging into a 26% to 22% national lead over Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination. The margin of error is a high 6%. But in this same poll, the trend shows that Trump has lost -5 points, while Carson gained +5 points.

According to the Real Clear Politics poll of poll, Trump currently enjoys a +5 point national lead over Carson.

Every other candidate is trailing by -14 or more points. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is in third with 8%; Jeb Bush and Carly Fiorina are tied at 7%. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Huckabee, and John Kasich are all tied up at 4%.

If you include Cruz, the non-establishment candidates earn 59% of support from Republican primary supporters.

There is some good news for Trump: his support is firmer than Carson’s. A full 55% of Trump supporters said he is their guy to the bitter end, compared to just 20% for Carson.

Carson’s national surge (at least in this poll) into first place coincides with what can only be described as a commanding lead in Iowa. According to the Real Clear Politics poll of polls, Carson beats Trump by 9% in the all-important caucus state.

Trump enjoys a commanding lead in every other state.

To those of us living out here in the real world, Carson’s rise is only a surprise to the DC Media. Earlier this month, Carson had a phenomenal week as the DC Media ganged up to destroy Carson over things he said that were not at all controversial. Carson suggested students practice self-defense if faced with a mass-shooter and that Nazi-era Jews would have been in a better position to resist more had the government not confiscated their firearms in advance of the Holocaust.

Democrats and their media allies have a long history of punishing black people who do not think the way they believe black people should think. Only today, instead of using the KKK, German Shepherds, and firehoses, the media uses Narratives and name-calling (“crazy,” “stupid”) to “other” free-thinking black men who dare stray from the Left-Wing Thought Plantation.

In the face of his racist DC Media oppressors, Carson, who has struggled in the past during media appearances, was nothing short of phenomenal. The good doctor kept his cool, his poise, and brilliantly made his case. It was the best week of his campaign, and what voters saw was a man fully capable of handling a hostile media.

Also, voters are likely responding to the fact that, at least for now, Carson gives the GOP their best chance to defeat Hillary. He’s up +5 points over her in the Real Clear poll of polls. Trump loses by -2.5 points.

I frankly don’t believe for a moment that Trump is losing to the Hildabeast. It’s more propaganda. Having said all that, Carson has some very good stances. I’m not thrilled with a couple of people he has on his team right now, but I like what Carson is saying. There is no doubt that support for Carson has grown greatly over the last few weeks. But he does not have the passion or charisma of Trump. We’ll just see how it goes. I still believe if things keep going as they are that Trump will get the nod, but it is a year until the nomination. There are lots more twists and turns in this race ahead.
