• Ben Carson’s Birthday Wish? The Donald Dropping Out Of The GOP Race

    Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson celebrated his 64th birthday by joking about his GOP rival Donald Trump dropping out of the race.

    “I guess the best birthday present is I heard Donald Trump had dropped out,” he told the crowd at Heritage Action for America’s presidential forum in Greenville, South Carolina.

    “Oh, wait a minute. That was just for today,” he said.

    Trump at the last minute canceled his appearance at the conservative forum because he reportedly needed to close “a significant business transaction” that was delayed.

    A New York Times poll showed Carson and Trump neck and neck on Tuesday of last week, before Wednesday night’s GOP debate on CNN.

    A national CNN/ORC poll, conducted in the three days after 23 million people tuned in to the debate, shows that Trump is still the party’s front-runner with 24% support. Fiorina ranks second with 15% support — up from 3% in early September. She’s just ahead of Ben Carson’s 14%, whose support has also declined from 19% in the previous poll.
