In the latest polls, Donald Trump is still leading with 23% and tied for second at 13% is Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina.
What happened? Last time I checked, Ben Carson and Trump were virtually tied for first place! Well, I’m not sure what’s happening to Carson, but maybe decisions like saying Obama is not Hitler, is contributing to his falling poll numbers among the Obama-hating Republican party.
Take this latest Carson statement for example. In a recent interview, the Republican presidential candidate said that a government like Nazi Germany’s could reign over the United States.
Carson argued during a campaign stop in New Hampshire that a similar regime is possible in any nation that relinquishes its freedoms.
“I beg to differ,” he said after proposing that scenario is impossible in America, according to CNN.
“If you go back and look at the history of the world, tyranny and despotism and how it starts, it has a lot to do with control of thought and control of speech,” Carson said.
“If people don’t speak up for what they believe, then other people will change things without them having a voice,” the retired neurosurgeon added.
“Hitler changed things there and nobody protested. Nobody provided any opposition to him.”
Carson also refused comment on Wednesday afternoon about the American he thinks most resembles Nazi leader Adolf Hitler today.
“I’m not going to go into that,” he said without elaborating further. “I think the example is pretty clear.”
Carson then rejected the idea that his speech was referencing President Obama’s White House.
“No,” he said when a reported asked if he was comparing Obama and Hitler.
“I am saying in a situation where people do not express themselves, bad things can happen,” the former doctor added.0
