Dr. Ben Carson has moved to #2 in The Hill’s Presidential power rankings, joining real estate mogul Donald Trump at the top of the field.
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has fallen all the way to #5…
According to The Hill:
“Two political outsiders are atop The Hill’s Republican presidential rankings three months away from the Iowa caucuses.
The rankings — which are based on polling, debate performances and discussions with campaign experts — are aimed at answering one question: Who is likely to win the party’s nomination?
Since The Hill’s rankings were last published on Aug. 31, Ben Carson has seized significant momentum. He has risen four places, to second from sixth. Moving almost as sharply in the opposite direction, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has slid from second place to fifth. Bush topped The Hill’s rankings in July.”
