Carson Beats Trump in Georgia, Rubio Closes the Gap

The latest Georgia primary poll by Fox 5/Morris News has revealed that Ben Carson has come out on top for the Republicans, followed closely by Donald Trump, and Ted Cruz.

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

  • Ben Carson – 26%
  • Donald Trump – 24%
  • Ted Cruz – 14%
  • Marco Rubio – 9%
  • Jeb Bush – 8%

Both Carson and Trump led the Republicans in this poll. For months, these two candidates have been the leaders and the most likely candidates to get nominated on numbers alone. However, Cruz is quickly closing the gap and establishing himself as a respectable Republican candidate that is more closely aligned with the GOP establishment.

If elected, Cruz provides a certain level of conservative stability and he brings a lot of experience that he earned through his time in the U.S. Senate. While his ideas are strange at times, he far more tame than both Trump and Carson and he is more focused on traditional Republican values.

If voters are looking for a break from traditional Republican values, both Carson and Trump will be the candidates to elect. Trump brings a sense of confidence and arrogance that some voters may find attractive in a world leader, while Carson brings a calm and calculated approach that is rooted in religion.

    Cruz is nuts ,and hated in Washington. ….total set up.His wife works for
    Goldman Sachs.
    Rubio is billionaire Sheldon Adelsons puppet….where is he ” closing the gap ?”
    Carson is unqualified in total and a proven sociopathic liar .
    ” Grounded in religion ? ” His is the 7 th Day Adventist Cult .
    His ” calm demeanor ” is from being a moron.
    The reason why he dies so well ? Half of the GOP base are extremist Evangelicals.

    I would like to know more about the polling source, the weighting metrics before I’d believe Georgia is leaning toward Carson over Trump.
    Post Paris, my first thought was “They just delivered Donald Trump as our next president.” There is going to be strong rip currents on the social side, the bleeding hearts holding up “American values” to justify allowing Trojan Horses to enter the USA.
    The American People do not want them here, they won’t assimilate, when their numbers increase, their boldness begins to grow. Already enclaves are clustering, where “American’s” are not welcome.
    There will come a flash point somewhere in the U.S. to trigger hostilities.
    Push come to shove, SHTF, I just wonder if our “first responders” will join the Militia, brothers in arms?
    Lines in the sands of time. America will not tolerate 1600’s religious wars.
    Rev. Franklin Graham has described “Islam” as EVIL. So called moderate Muslims choose to stay out of the fray, they wouldn’t report a Radical imo, no matter what.
    When Push Comes to Shove, You’re with “US” or against “US.” When gheezers like me are ready to join up and fight again SOMETHING is NOT RIGHT. Heck, I stand NO CHANCE of getting into my old uniform.
    Kinda makes me wonder “Who Can Keep America Safe.” The Crusades have begun again.
