It is times like this when I know my theory is correct, that Americans love punishment. How the hell is Ben Carson – a man who gives me the urge to flush the toilet everytime he opens his mouth, how can this man be tied with Hillary Clinton – the former Secretary of State – for president?
Clinton is ahead of Republican Donald Trump by eight points among registered voters, 50 percent to 42 percent.
She leads former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush by four points, 47 percent to 43 percent.
And Clinton holds a three-point advantage over Sen. Marco Rubio, 47 percent to 44 percent, though that’s well within the poll’s margin of error of plus-minus 3.4 percentage points.
But against Ben Carson, who is now leading the GOP horse race in the NBC/WSJ poll, Clinton finds herself in a tied contest, 47 percent to 47 percent.
The reason why Carson performs better versus Clinton than the rest of the GOP field is due to Carson’s standing among independent voters.0
