This is the first time that Trump has not lead the national polls in 3 months. He is now down 5 percentage points over the past 2 weeks, while Carson has gone up 5% in the same time period.
Just like in Iowa, Carson has a strong lead against Trump among evangelical voters. Carson leads Trump by 20% with this group.
Although these numbers look great for Carson, his support is more fluid than Trumps. About 4 in 5 Carson supporters said that they could still change their minds about whom they will vote for, while over half of Trump’s supporters have already made up their mind in favor of Trump.
In the past, Trump has shown 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.
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. Get rewarded for your opinion on topics here.
