Ben Carson Overtakes Donald Trump in the Polls. What It Means...
We called Ben Carson the quiet cool yesterday, and here's why: while the person who tweets for Donald Trump was focused on cattiness...
Rubio was very disloyal to Bush, his mentor, when he decided to run against him. Both said they "love" each other.They don't - word is hate!

Ben Carson was focused on voters. The result...
Donald Trump has boasted that he's "leading every poll and in most cases big." Not anymore. The latest IBD/TIPP Poll shows him in second place, seven points behind Ben Carson.
The nationwide survey found that 24% of Republicans back Carson, compared with 17% who say they support Trump.
Marco Rubio came in third with 11% and Carly Fiorina fourth at 9%. Jeb Bush, once considered a prohibitive favorite, ranked fifth with just 8% support, which was a point lower than those who say they are still undecided.
Of course, it's too early to put that much faith in the polls. And with the amount of candidates running, anyone polling higher than 6.66% (no, the irony is not lost) is doing okay for now.
But, when your entire campaign is focused on how well you're doing in the polls, and how everyone else is a "loser", that first poll where you drop out of first place is a big deal. Especially when it's by such a significant margin.
This is where we start to see Trump attacking Ben Carson with the left's talking points. Whatever HuffPo or Salon.com uses to slam Dr. Ben Carson, expect Trump to say the exact same thing the next day.
Because Dr. Ben Carson... he's so hot right now.
