It appears the Republican race for the presidential nomination is turning into an ugly and embarrassing food fight for the Republican National Committee (RNC). Two of the five surviving candidates, Dr. Ben Carson and Ohio Governor John Kasich think so. One of them went very public in this turbulent election 2016.
On Saturday, Carson, the retired neurosurgeon candidate, commented that Republican voters would be “dense” if they nominate business mogul and front-runner Donald Trump. The doctor is currently at the bottom of most current GOP presidential polls. It appears that Florida Senator Marco Rubio and Texas Senator Ted Cruz are trying to bring that message to voters. The question is whether or not it’s too late.
In a question-and-answer session at Texas Medical Center in Houston, Raw Story reports Dr. Carson as saying, “Right now people are making decisions based on anger and fear, and anyone who knows human nature can tell you that when you make decisions based on anger and fear they tend to be bad decisions. The question is, are American people going to awaken and recognize what’s going on? I believe the answer to that is yes. I do not believe that we are quite that dense.”
Can the other GOP candidates slice into Trump’s delegate lead enough to force a brokered convention in Cleveland this August? Carson warned that if Trump continues his winning ways all the way to the convention, “yes we would make a very, very bad mistake.” It was an unusual position for the soft-spoken doctor to take.
Carson was emphatic with the assembled reporters who came to listen to his speech. He believes the March 1 Super Tuesday primaries will show Trump seeing less support with his own campaign “bouncing back.” The former looks more promising than the latter at this stage of the race.
