Carson leads Iowa poll

Latest poll of likely Iowa caucus-goers now has Ben Carson leading Trump.

In the previous two Iowa caucuses, a candidate representing the hardcore religious right won or tied in Iowa and then went on to lose the nomination: Huckabee in 2008 and Santorum in 2012. So this doesn’t mean that Carson is going to win the nomination. But this is still bad news for Trump who would be unstoppable if he wins both Iowa and New Hampshire.

My enthusiasm for Trump has waned since he came out with a tax plan that’s a massive tax cut for the rich, after he had previously went on for two months saying that rich Wall Street people are getting away without paying their fair share of taxes.

  1. Trump is not the answer, but he is better than Clinton. A vote for the best of the worst is American politics. If you were a debt slave like me, I think you would almost understand.

    • Voting for “the best of the worst” is how we got here in the first place.

  2. People need to get their priorities straight. The only thing that matters this time is immigration and SCOTUS. Besides, if tax reform even comes up during his term (which I doubt) his plan is just a starting bid. He obviously set lower rates than what he really wants so that he’ll have room to negotiate.

      • True. Anthony Kennedy, the judge who gave us nation-wide gay marriage, was an appointee of Ronald Reagan. Notice how few conservatives pointed this out. They were probably too embarrassed to face it.

  5. Another poll has Carson leading Trump in Wisconsin.

    It may be that Midwestern whites aren’t into the bombastic style of politics that Trump embodies. Carson’s reserved demeanor reminds me of the “Minnesota nice” personality type.

  6. I hate his tax plan too, but he will never get it through congress so I’m not too worried about that. On the other hand, a lot can be done to slow down immigration with enforcement of existing laws

  7. If you look at SoCon twitter, the Keep Momma Happy white knights often meow at each other about how Trump has been married…3 times! There’s envy there, and deference to their wives, who find Carson quite dreamy.

    • Only a gold digger would find Carson “quite dreamy.” Normal white women find him excremental.

  8. Iowa for Republicans is an evangelical state, so it’s possible that Carson could win there. As you’ve pointed out, they have a history of going for the evangelical candidate. What’s interesting is that your predication on Huckabee has bombed even more than I thought it would. Carson has totally replaced Huckabee as the evangelical choice. I’m curious as to why that switch happened.

    Trump’s tax plan was blaah, but I’m pretty sure you’re not going to like any of the other ones, I just want that big wall with the giant T plastered across it,

    That’s classy!

    Mike Street Station

      • And, as you yourself pointed out, they like the fact that he’s black, because they think that helps them prove they’re not racist. Also, they love seeing an accomplished (e.g., brain surgeon) black person, because that gives them warm fuzzy feelings inside about racial progress.


        October 23, 2015 at 4:28 pm

    • Ben Carson has been going around the country giving his talk for at least two years now. Just like Reagan did back in the 70s. A bunch of local Catholic Republicans carpooled to go see him a couple hours’ drive from here. So anyway he has built this constituency. They swooned. A black conservative! What’s not to like?

      This speaking shtick is a very savvy thing to do, if you have a good line of BS. If someone wants to run for president, they either got to do a lot of talking around the country (not just Iowa), or at least be a very vocal and conspicuous critic of the current administration. McCain did the latter and at least got the nom because of name recognition.

      I don’t think Jeb Bush bothered with either of these. He just went after the donors.

  9. “My enthusiasm for Trump has waned since he came out with a tax plan that’s a massive tax cut for the rich…”

    But is that enough to outweigh the fact that he’s the only candidate who is mostly right on immigration? My feeling is that if we were to elect a Hillary Clinton or a Jeb Bush, none of the rest of this stuff will matter. Immigration is like a runaway train: once a certain amount of momentum is built up, throwing on the emergency brake will do nothing, it’s only a matter of where and when the train will jump the tracks and crash.

    And don’t discount the possibility that Carson is receiving money and/or political advice from anti-Trump individuals or groups. The GOP establishment is so desperate to stop Trump that they are willing (for now) to bankroll Carson, and then figure out later how to either co-opt him or get rid of him.

  10. Incredible, America literally rests on the demographic brink under a Leftist president who is blatantly and uncontroversially working outside the law at light speed to put the final nail in the coffin of the white majority where the only whisp of a hope for the future of the nation is a credible presidential candidate who campaigns to deport and repatriate all illegals and overhaul the immigration system in total.

    Enter Trump….and his tax plan is stupid?

  11. I’m forty-five. I’ve seen lots of anti-establishment candidates go down in flames in my life, and don’t expect any different with Trump this time around.

    Assuming he isn’t just talked by his peers into leaving the race before any votes are cast (as happened with Perot), I expect the Iowa caucus to be used as sort of a firewall (as happened with Dean). The caucus rules allow establishment supporters to coalesce around one candidate. The media will then talk this up as a huge defeat for Trump, though they ignored Bill Clinton’s defeats in both Iowa and New Hampshire, and voters elsewhere will bandwagon onto the media’s preferred candidate.

    The Republican party gets alot of votes and support from evangelical/ fundamentalist Christians without actually implementing their preferred policies. The Iowa caucus has been used in the past to throw these people a bone by being delivered to their candidate, who then fades out in the other primaries. Since Carson is completely implausible as president unless the office becomes a completely figurehead office, they might have Carson win Iowa, knock out Trump, then have the real choice emerge in the later primaries. But I don’t think things will get that fancy.


    October 23, 2015 at 11:30 am

    • Trump is a billionaire, media savvy, and has a message that resonates. He’s the perfect package and very similar to FDR. The reason Roosevelt got shit done is because he represented old money New York and was backed by major international firms. Trump isn’t just anti-establishment he’s part of the the ruling class which terrifies the elites. If we can’t get someone like Trump elected then we need to stop all discussion period.

      October 23, 2015 at 6:16 pm

  13. I don’t find Trump’s tax plan as offensive as you do, and I agree that immigration is far and away the most important issue. But anyway, going back to 1976, here are the winners of the Iowa Republican caucuses:

    1976 – Ford*
    1980 – Bush I
    1984 – Reagan ** (unopposed)
    1988 – Dole
    1992 – Bush I * (unopposed)
    1996 – Dole*
    2000 – Bush II **
    2004 – Bush ** (unopposed)
    2008 – Huckabee
    2012 – Santorum

    (* means won the nomination. ** means won the general election).

    So in seven contested races since 1976, the Iowa caucuses have picked the winner of the nomination in four. Of those four, the only candidate to go on and win the general election was Bush II in 2000. Not such a great track record.

  14. All do respect to the lawyers among us, I do like that the two Republican front-runners aren’t attorneys; a surgeon and a real-estate developer. I don’t know if we can exactly count our last non-lawyer president, Baby-Bush, as a big success though.. Whatever I think of the the spirit and substance of Trump’s immigration realism, I don’t much care for his style. But it seems to be working for him, so I can’t argue with that. The same firmness of a “no” would appeal to me much more if delivered with a quiet and dignity than all that swagger and hyperbole. I like Carson’s low-key style much better than Trump’s abrasiveness. But who care what I think; I’m not a likely primary voter and I live in an awful coastal blue-city in a blue-state condemned to one-party rule. So I haven’t voted in decades. I can’t wait to leave this place.

    For all of you who would vote, in a Bush-Clinton rematch, would you hold your noses and vote for Bro-Bush over Bill Clinton’s wife? Do any of you live in states where your vote would even matter? Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Nevada and so on…?

  16. Like Ann Coulter says, immigration is the most important issue. I was on the 7 train in Corona, Queens. The train was filled with young Central American women, each with 4-5 kids. They cannot afford to house or feed their children and taxpayers are stepping in.

    Even more ominously they are not able to provide their children with the opportunity to live a decent life. And the fact is even with massive cash transfers, American government is not going to be able to provide them with opportunities either. Our economy simply does not need a large underclass of unskilled workers.

  17. O/T – but HBD related: Even liberal media outlets like CNN, are now admitting the failure of blacks and Hispanics, despite holding college credentials.

    They’re always pointing a finger on racism. They did get one thing right. Hispanics who didn’t go to college, saw their income rise. A good lesson from proles, Yakov must be proud!


    October 23, 2015 at 1:41 pm

    • A high percentage of blacks with college “degrees” probably lack the IQ to do white-collar jobs traditionally associated with college degrees.

      Lion of the Blogosphere

      October 23, 2015 at 3:13 pm

      • Yes, because the “degrees” were specifically created with lower standards so that lower-IQ people could get degrees, as if merely holding any degree magically bestows middle-class status on its holder.

      “Surprisingly, blacks and Hispanics without degrees saw their incomes climb 17.3% and 15.6%”

      • “because they’re smarter”

        I am a white (Caucasian) who has worked as a software engineer in Silicon Valley for the last 30+ years. The field is dominated by Asians.

        Is that because Asians are so much smarter then whites?

        It is much more complicated than that. An important part of the question is what do smart whites, Asians, Blacks and Hispanics chose to do. Over the last 30 years it seems fewer smart whites have chosen to go into technology fields. They go to Wall Street, Law or go to business school aiming for management.

        Many of the Asians in technology jobs in the USA were not born in the USA. In many Asian countries it is well understood that majoring in the technology fields, like software and electrical engineering make it easier to get to USA and get green cards. Silicon Valley employs the best and brightest from many Asian countries. Asians have been able to get those jobs specifically because smart whites tend to favor other majors. The smart Asians in Silicon Valley are drawn from a huge pool of Asians in the USA, Taiwan, China, India, Vietnam, ….

        A significant percentage of the whites in Silicon Valley are also immigrants from Europe including Eastern Europe and Russia, but Silicon Valley is probably drawing on a smaller pool of whites than Asians.

        I really don’t know what smart Blacks and Hispanics do. There are small numbers here in Silicon Valley. The pool of blacks to draw on is much smaller than whites or Asians and blacks seem to have not recognized that technology fields are a good route into the middle class.

      • I find many blacks to be particularly non-clever or adaptable, hence their overall failure as a group. From my encounters, not many blacks are willingly to relocate for opportunities.

      • mikeca — Not all smart Whiteys are inclined to go to Wall St, BIGLAW or some other lucrative field of money worship. Academia is an area for those who love to research and write. A place where you do not find a lot of East Asians, and this has to do more with curiosity and ability, rather than inequality.


        October 24, 2015 at 3:26 pm

      • One thing that is hardly mentioned, is that college oriented blacks, Hispanics, along with overrepresented East Asians, rarely demonstrate genuine passion for academic learning, despite living in an age where racial equality and post scarcity economics have lessened the disparities between the different groups, significantly.


        October 24, 2015 at 3:32 pm

    • This is one of the stories full of very confusing statistics.

      What the story says is that between 1992 and 2013 whites and Asians with college degrees have had their income and net worth go up. Black and Hispanics with college degrees have seen their income decline over the same period. On the other hand Black and Hispanics without college degrees have seen their income go up.

      This gives you the misleading idea that blacks and Hispanics are better off not going to college, but that is not the case. If you get to the end of the story, you find total family income for college educated Blacks is $52,150 and for non-college educated Blacks is $26,600.

      Racism may have a little to do with this, but I suspect it has more to do with the fields that Blacks chose to study. I suspect a lot of the gains in income for whites and Asians come from technology fields where incomes have gone up significantly since 1992. Blacks are very under represented in technology fields while Asians tend to be over represented.


      October 23, 2015 at 6:32 pm

      • Hispanics have dominated the trades, which is what the article is suggesting. Hispanics w/o degrees do better, because of blue collar work. They have taken over much of it, that blacks have been left out completely.


        October 24, 2015 at 2:12 pm

      • Because Asians don’t believe the stupid crap that college administrators peddle over here “Follow your passion and the money will follow”. No thanks !! If you have a passion in something that is not that marketable, make it your hobby.

  23. Policy is the opiate of the “educated” masses. As if some detailed document presented by the candidate means anything. It’s the same every year.

    I don’t care what Trump’s specific policies are. I expect he will change his mind once he gets in there. I do care that he’s successful at actually doing something difficult (NYC real estate development), he has the skills to run a large organization, he’s a leader, and he cares about actual Americans.

    Who else can lay claim to all of those? I don’t give a rats ass about his tax plan because no tax plan, even under Obama, is preventing anyone from making more money. This is the greatest time to make money in the history of the world. You have access to millions and even billions of people in a way no one ever imagined, and people are whining about wages. Jesus, stop being average and a worker bee. Work for your employer then make money on the side.

    I know people pine for the days when Joe Average could go to the factory, bang some wrenches, and come home with a decent wage. Those days are over (although Trump may bring some of it back maybe). If you think you’re special, prove it. There are endless free resources on this type of stuff. But I suspect most people would rather make their 50K per year and whine how unfair it all is because that is easier than actually trying to do something (and yes, failing is part of it).

  25. Since the uber-rich mostly favor massive Third World immigration, they should foot the bill, which I’m sure they would be overjoyed to pay since it would be the right thing to do. A back-of-the-envelope calculation* puts the immigration tax surcharge on the uber-rich at $500 million each per year.

    Figure $7,000 annually per immigrant school kid for education and $5,000 per immigrant for medical and dental care. Include something for government housing and food stamps, plus infrastructure expansion (roads, waste removal, electricity, prison cells, water and sewage) for, say, 12 million immigrants. The annual total comes to over $250 billion. Divide that by the roughly 500 billionaires in America today yields $500 million per billionaire per year.

  26. Fox news has chosen Carson. You saw that in the questions and the anchors kindness and deference toward him (Megyn Kelly). It seems really conservative (socially speaking) to me, but i’m french …..

    It’s strange to see that sucessfull intelligent black people from “underprivileged” (in Barbara Bush’s idiom) background are so conservative. Perhaps it’s a reaction against the tradictional elite : 96% of Harvard faculty voted Democrats following the Crimson, the Harvard gazette. In this elite environment, perhaps being a Republican is like, in general society, keeping a revolutionary and beat mindset.

    To the contrary, Cornel West, a liberal princeton professor, is from a middle class background.

    October 24, 2015 at 12:20 pm

  30. Carson seems so overbearingly dumb it’s hard for me to get past it. On every single interview he’s given he comes off as hilariously ignorant and lazy, and snobbishly contemptuous of anyone who notes his lazy ignorance. I really don’t know how anyone can watch him and think he’s qualified to be president. I think anyone political sophisticated enough to watch a political interview is probably more politically informed than Carson.

    And yet everyone goes on and on about how damn “smart” he supposedly is. Even critical conservative journalists always begin their criticisms by praising the man for his obvious, enormous, giant-brained genius.

    On Charlie Rose the other day he mentioned that he chose a career as a surgeon because had a calm temperament and steady hands. That’s respectable and impressively self-aware, but it suggests his success as a brain surgeon didn’t necessarily grow from some deep-seeded intellectual curiosity about the world. Indeed, being a great surgeon can often be more of a physical skill than an intellectual one, akin to being a watchmaker or jeweler or something.

    I guess part of his appeal simply has to be symbolic and racial. Conservatives are simply too in love with the IDEA of a brilliant black candidate to concede that Dr. Carson isn’t one.

    • A good doctor is just that. . .a good doctor. Doesn’t means he’s intelligent about anything else.

  31. Carson is a weak candidate who hasn’t been subject to much scrutiny. He’s a “feel good” candidate for conservatives who want a nice well-educated black Republican. His positions (pro-amnesty, eliminate Medicare, etc.) are out of step with most conservatives and his candidacy will crumble once tough attacks start.

    If I were Trump, I’d see the Carson boom as a good thing, as it takes support and attention from viable competition – Rubio, Fiorina, Cruz, Bush. Trump is wise to hit them harder, but there’ll come a point when he needs to step up his attack on Carson.

  32. My enthusiasm for Trump has waned since announced John Bolton as his favorite foreign policy guy. Yikes. Ending mass immigration won’t avail us if the world is reduced a smoldering cinder after four years of Trump/Bolton at the helm. I’ll vote for him if he cleans up his act on foreign policy big time but either way I’m sure glad he’s moving the Overton window on immigration.

  33. excellent point you are making–about his tax plan being so generous to the rich….and I have also turned lukewarm on him…and also now after that revelation from trump about his tax plan, he is losing poll support…but the media is not making the connection, is it? Curious that. The media refuses to ever mix economic populism into the rightwing realm.

    • taxing rich people not populism. Trade protectionism, deportations, enforcing anti-monopoly anti-trust laws are populism. See Trump.
