Dr. Ben Carson is statistically tied (given the poll’s margin of error) with Donald Trump in the latest Fox poll of the 2016 GOP Presidential field. Trump is a point ahead with 24% to Carson’s 23%.
According to Fox News:
“Ben Carson is giving Donald Trump a run for his money, according to the latest Fox News national poll.
Support for Carson in the race for the Republican nomination has nearly doubled in the last two months, he is seen by voters as being more ethical than others, and he has the largest number of GOP primary voters who say they would definitely vote for him.
That makes him well-positioned to overtake Trump.
In addition, the poll tested an array of general election match-ups and Carson is the only Republican to get 50 percent support. In a Carson vs. Hillary Clinton contest, he has the advantage by a 50-39 percent margin.
Running down the GOP race: Trump remains in the top spot with 24 percent, closely followed by Carson at 23 percent… For now, Carson gets the lowest never-vote-for number of the candidates tested — six percent.”
