Donald trump’s slipping… Carly Fiorina’s surging —
And Ben Carson’s being pushed to drop out of the race after a controversial comment about Muslims.
There’s some shifting in the polls after last week’s debate. It looks like Carly Fiorina’s fight to get on that stage… For her, was worth it.
The first big poll after last week’s debate shows Carly Fiorina surging…
Up from three to now 15 percent… In second place behind Donald Trump. “A people come to know me and they understand who I am and what I’ve done and most importantly, what I will do, they tend to support me,” said Presidential Candidate Carly Fiorina.
Fiorina replaces Ben Carson as number two. Muslim groups are now calling on him to drop out of the race after he said this. “I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that,” said Presidential Candidate, Dr. Ben Carson (R).
“He said that on his own and that was just, it was startling,” said Jeremy Peters, NY Times.
It came just days after Donald Trump failed to correct a supporter who called President Obama Muslim – he’s not.
Trump’s reply seemed to support getting rid of Muslims in America. “The fact is, there is a problem with some and it’s a very severe problem,” said Donald Trump, (R) Presidential Candidate.
“He is fueling a level of paranoia and prejudice,” said Hillary Clinton, (D) Presidential Candidate.
NBC released a separate poll that shows Fiorina with the highest positive-negative balance from the last debate – 34 Percent. The next closest was Marco Rubio at 8 percent.
