Trouble at Ben Carson’s campaign

According to the Wall Street Journal

One of Ben Carson’s top fundraisers told the Republican presidential candidate on Wednesday that he is quitting the campaign after he was unable to orchestrate a shake-up of its senior staff.

This type of internal strife in a candidate’s campaign is always a really big warning sign. Newt Gingrich also had a lot of problems like that.

  1. Ben Carson is far and away the most damaging candidate in this cycle. Through his massive appeal to stupid Christians and low information voters he has been able to take votes that belong to Trump and Cruz and thereby strengthen the establishment. Now granted, he takes some votes from Rubio too but not as many, and Trump needs the higher poll numbers to fight the establishment.

    Currently Carson is holding on to 6 points that rightfully belong to Trump. Give Trump those 6 points and he’s stronger than all of the establishment candidates combined. The sooner Carson’s candidacy fades out, the better.

    I really detest Ben Carson. We need to take away the right of pro life Christians to vote in primaries so there aren’t more candidates like Carson and Huckabee.

  2. The GOP establishment is funding a bunch of dummy candidates to destroy Trump. Originally they were to split the vote and enable a Jeb nomination with only 15-25% of the vote in the winner take all states, but they evolved into a stop-Trump coalition. One by one their donors will drop out and it will be down to a few candidates.

  3. There was also that Carson adviser who openly said the boss didn’t know anything about foreign policy and was incapable of learning. The quid pro quo theory says that behind the nice guy veneer, Carson must be rude to his staff.
