His closest competitor is Dr. Ben Carson at 15%, followed distantly by Jeb Bush (9%), Marco Rubio (6%), Carly Fiorina (6%), Ted Cruz (5%), and then Scott Walker (4%).  Hometown U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham finds only 4% support while John Kasich, Mike Huckabee, and Rand Paul net 3% a piece.  

Chris Christie? 2%.

“Political experience is not a particularly valuable commodity this primary season,” observed Murray.

  1. Dr. Ben Carson! The Country is very sick; we need a Doctor in office!!! #healinspirerevive #imwithben. Semper fi! Imagine what we could accomplish if we stop letting people divide us and we stop working together! #healinspirerevive Dr. Ben Carson for President! Shalom!!!

  2. P.S. I believe that poll is falsified; Dr. Carson is in the top in S.C., along with above Hillary Clinton! May the best man win; heal us, good Dr., inspire us, good Dr., and revive us, good Dr. Ben Carson! Semper Shalom!!!
