G OP frontrunner Donald Trump is the leader in three new statewide polls in New Hampshire, Florida and New Jersey that were released on Wednesday.
Here’s a look at the three polls on the GOP race for the White House.
Trump takes 22 percent in Boston WBUR News’s poll in New Hampshire, well ahead of Ben Carson and Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.), who tie for second at 11 percent.
Carly Fiorina:’Anyone can turn a multi-million dollar inheritance into more money, but all the money in the world won’t make you as smart as Ben Carson!’
Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina fired back at Donald Trump on Thursday, after the billionaire real estate mogul likened Ben Carson’s “pathological” temper as a young man to the mental issues of a child molester.
“Donald, sorry, I've got to interrupt again,” Fiorina wrote on her Facebook page, referencing a moment from Tuesday’s presidential debate in which Trump chastised the former Hewlett-Packard executive for interjecting.
“You would know something about pathological,” she continued. “How was that meeting with Putin? Or Wharton? Or your self funded campaign? Anyone can turn a multi-million dollar inheritance into more money, but all the money in the world won't make you as smart as Ben Carson.”
Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is shifting his focus back toward the key GOP issue of immigration amid a slide in polls from Iowa.
Trump said in an interview broadcast Sunday that retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, who took the lead in the first-in-the-nation caucus last week, is “very, very weak on immigration” and “believes in amnesty strongly.”
“He’s very, very weak on immigration, and I’m very strong on immigration,” Trump said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
Benjamin Solomon "Ben" Carson, Sr. (born September 18, 1951) is an American retired neurosurgeon who was the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital from 1984 to 2013. He is known for surgical separation of conjoined twins, as well as a bestselling author and political commentator.
In 2008, Carson was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President George W. Bush.
The real-estate mogul received nearly 78 percent of CNN’s coverage of the Republican primary race from Aug. 24 to Sept. 4, according to a report issued by the conservative Media Research Center on Wednesday.
The retired neurosurgeon said he would bring plenty of energy to the Oval Office.
“I recognize that I have plenty of energy,” Carson said on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday. “You know, operating on people for 10, 12, sometimes for greater than 20 hours at a time, making critical decision after many hours of intense work.”
Carson also responded to Trump’s assertion that he does not have the practical business experience necessary to be president.
