The Republican presidential leader Donald Trump stated on Sunday that he’s surprised by the recent polls that show that he is now behind Ben Carson in the important state of Iowa. Share your opinion here.
For the past 3 months, Trump has been beating all of the other 14 candidates in essentially every poll. However two surveys released show that he is now trailing Carson.
Trump is baffled by these numbers. “I don’t understand Iowa,” Trump said. “Because, frankly, I just left, and we had tremendous crowds and the tremendous enthusiasm. And, frankly, even to be tied, I’m a little surprised.”
In the past Trump showed a lot of respect towards Carson. Now that Carson is rising, he is starting to attack. He recently commented that Carson was even more low energy than Jeb Bush. “We need high-energy people,” Trump said. What are your thoughts?
He even had strange comments about Carson’s religion. “I’m Presbyterian,” Trump said. “Boy, that’s down the middle of the road, folks, in all fairness. I mean, Seventh Day Adventist — I don’t know about. I just don’t know about.”
Carson really had nothing to say about Trump’s comments, “”I don’t get into the mud pit,” Carson said.
Although Trump is losing ground in Iowa, Trump still leads national polls.
Trump is continuing to call out the other Republican contenders for being so close with super PACs.
On Twitter he said “This whole Super PAC scam is very unfair to a person like me who is has dasavowed all PAC’s & is self-funding.”
He took his comments a step further and said that “what the other candidates are doing is a disgrace. All Presidential candidates should immediately disavow their SUper PAC’s. They’re not only breaking the spirit of the law but the law itself.” What is your opinion?
