Ahead of tonight’s debate CNN report

Ben Carson is closing in on Donald Trump in New Hampshire, according to a new poll out Wednesday, just hours before the candidates will face off against each other in the second Republican primary debate.

Trump is still leading GOP candidates and has 22% of likely voters in the New Hampshire Republican primary, according to the WBUR survey. But Carson has garnered 18% of support, bringing him within 4 points of Trump. Fiorina has 11%, pushing Bush out of the top 3. The former Florida governor and Ohio Gov. John Kasich both polled at 9%.

This is becoming a very hard race to assess as you feel a candidate like Donald Trump shouldn’t be leading in the polls but he is (though I said the same about Jeremy Corbyn.) Like Corbyn, Trump is a breath of fresh air for the ├é┬ávoters. I think he’s the well funded Herman Cain of this campaign cycle rather than Mitt Romney . The next fourteen months should make for fascinating viewing and betting especially with Hillary Clinton faltering.
