    Poll: Carson leads Trump by 12 in NC
    [​IMG]
    Ben Carson has a double-digit lead in North Carolina over the rest of the 2016 GOP presidential field, a new poll finds.

    Carson takes 31 percent support from Republican-leaning voters in the state, according to the Elon University survey released Thursday.

    That gives him a 12-point edge over his closest competition, Donald Trump, who is at 19 percent.

    Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) tie for third and fourth with 9.7 percent each. Former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-Fla.) follows with 4.6 percent.
    Carson is also the top pick as a back-up candidate among the Tar Heel state's Republican-leaning voters, with 15.1 percent saying he's their second choice.

    Trump edges out Rubio as a back-up, with 14.4 percent to the senator's 13.6 percent. Cruz is the second choice for 9.4 percent, while 5 percent would select Bush as their follow up.

    The poll's results come as Carson and Trump are locked in a close struggle nationwide for the GOP nomination.

    Carson overtook the outspoken billionaire’s place atop the RealClearPolitics average of polls Wednesday, after trailing Trump in the rankings there all summer long. He now leads Trump by less than 1 point in the aggregate polling index.

    Trump has gradually stepped up his attacks on Carson despite the pair’s initially warm relationship on the campaign trail.

    He has criticized the retired neurosurgeon’s soft-spoken demeanor and raised questions about his strict Seventh-day Adventist faith.

    Elon University's poll of 466 Republican primary voters and GOP-leaning independent primary voters was conducted via telephone from Oct. 29 to Nov. 2. It has a 4.54 percent margin of error.

    Wanna hear some more good ones?

    Our sitting president thinks demand precedes supply in economic importance, that we can borrow our way out of debt and that you can fill the shallow end with water taken from the deep end.

    Hilarious, isn't it?

    Historically many have done well in polls till the voters in that state actually tune in and hear what they have to say. They can look ok on paper. Then they open their mouths.

    I think Carson is an utter kook as well, but calling someone delusional for voting for Carson in light of what he thinks of the pyramids is really no different than calling someone delusional for voting for Obama in light of his association with Bill Ayers.

    Carson wouldn't have the authority, as President, to effect any kind of religious change in the country just like Obama wouldn't have the authority to prevent the Weather Underground people getting in trouble.

    Unless someone has a candidate that perfectly reflects their beliefs, the it's ALWAYS a matter of picking and choosing the issues that matter to you and voting the candidate who is closest to that.

    There are many simpletons who vote the party line because they go about the process backwards. They are sheep who don't know what they think about something until the party line is disclosed - then they are 100% behind it no matter how much they really disagree with it and are in denial.

    Voting for someone who is kooky on some issues might well be a lot more honest than voting for someone you agree with on every issue.

    just listened to him on cnn. he's a loon. cnn asks about his past statements and he tells them that his past statements don't matter because of all the important things going on in the world.

    it was fun to listen to him shit on the interviewer though. the woman who came from fox...whatshername!
