Four recent polls in Iowa show Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson holding, and in some cases widening, his lead over rival Donald Trump. In addition, a national poll conducted by CBS News and New York Times, shows Carson leading Trump for the first time in this election cycle.
In these face of these irrefutable figures, Trump stated,
I don’t get it,” Trump said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Tuesday. “I’m going there (to Iowa) actually today and I have tremendous crowds and I have tremendous love in the room and, you know, we seem to have hit a chord. But some of these polls coming out, I don’t quite get it.
Not one to learn from his mistakes, Trump continued his attacks, resorting to lies about Carson’s stance on Medicare.
You know Ben wants to knock out Medicare. I heard that over the weekend, he wants to abolish Medicare. And I think, you know, abolishing Medicare. I don’t think you’re going to get away with that one. And it’s actually a program that’s worked.
Old news Donald. Carson has previously said he wanted to end traditional Medicare, but has since softened his stance on the popular program. If you read a little you might have caught that.
Poor Donnie. It really sounds like’s he’s losing it. He is unable to grasp the concept that popularity on a reality tv show does not translate to political popularity when intelligent voters eventually look at key issues important to them.
Well, I don’t get it,” he said of Carson’s rise. “You look at different things having to do with Ben and there’s a lot of contradiction and a lot of questions. We’ll have to see. One thing I know about a front-runner: you get analyzed 15 different ways from China.
That’s it, Donald. The American people are starting to say it.
