In what may be a sign of where the race could be headed, Dr Ben Carson has taken the lead from Donald Trump in the 2016 GOP Presidential race in a new poll.
According to Investor’s Business Faily, Carson has surged ahead of “The Donald” by 7%.
“Donald Trump has boasted that he’s “leading every poll and in most cases big.” Not anymore. The latest IBD/TIPP Poll shows him in second place, seven points behind Ben Carson.
The nationwide survey found that 24% of Republicans back Carson, compared with 17% who say they support Trump.
Marco Rubio came in third with 11% and Carly Fiorina fourth at 9%.”
>>>Carson just announced he’s raised a record $20 million the last three months, giving the soft spoken Doctor from Detroit a war chest to match his recent ascendance to top-tier status.
On the Dem side, VP Biden came in second even despite the fact he’s not even officially in the race.
“Hillary Clinton is the top pick of 42% of 344 registered Democrats or those leaning Democratic. Vice President Joe Biden is second at 22%, even though he has yet to announce whether he plans to run.
Bernie Sanders is backed by 18% of Democrats. Sanders’ strongest support is among those 18-24, of whom 48% back the self-identified socialist, while only 14% back Clinton.”
