Poll: Half of Republicans want Trump or Carson
Heading into this presidential cycle, Republicans were excited about the depth of their bench. Democrats had Hillary Clinton. Republicans had Scott Walker, Jeb Bush, John Kasich, Rick Perry, Chris Christie, and Marco Rubio.
And at the end of summer, they polled a combined 20% in the national Monmouth University Poll.
Donald Trump is at 30%, and Ben Carson 18%.
Walker, Bush, Kasich, Perry, Christie and Rubio have all that experience, and all that money.
But Trump and Carson have all the votes.
Well, half of them.
The party's rank and file is tired of Republican National Committee and Congressional Republican
Where is the vote on Obamacare that forces the president to veto?
Where is the court case that demands that the Iran Treaty get two-thirds approval by the Senate?
Where are the hearings on 307,000 veterans dying while waiting for the Civil Service-protected ingrates at VA to fulfill America's promise
Where is the hearing on the EPA turning the Animas River orange?
Why are we still funding Planned Parenthood if the House controls spending?
Must the Republican Party have the permission of the Chamber of Commerce told to blow a fart?
Support of Trump is a great Rhymes with "Truck Two" from the voters.
Frankly, I don't think Republicans want the White House.
Donald Trump and Ben Carson may have signed a desperate No Third Party Pledge -- but their voters have not.
