Ben Carson surges past Jeb Bush to No. 2 spot as Republicans embrace outsiders

Friday, August 28, 2015 | Tag Cloud Tags: ,

(Worthy News) - Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson has surged to the No. 2 spot in the GOP field, overtaking former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and, combined with front-running businessman Donald Trump, gives outsiders a firm grip atop the Republican presidential race.

Combined, the two men have 40 percent of the vote in the latest Quinnipiac University Poll. Add in businesswoman Carly Fiorina’s 5 percent, and nearly half of Republicans say their No. 1 choice for president is someone who has never won a public election.

But it’s Mr. Carson’s swelling support that stands out.

“He’s the safe rebel,” said Michael McKenna, a GOP strategist and pollster. [ Source ]
