As The Two Poll Leaders, Trump And Carson Square Off

Ahead of the second Republican presidential debate, Donald Trump has started shifting his attention to the second in the polls, Dr. Ben Carson. At a rally in Ames, Iowa on Saturday, Trump told supporters “I don’t think Ben has the energy. Ben is a nice man. But when you’re negotiating against China, and you’re negotiating against these Japanese guys who are going to come in waves … we need people who are really smart, who have tremendous deal-making skills, and have tremendous energy. We need people with an aggressive tone, and we need people with tremendous energy, and I’m your candidate, OK?”

In addition, Carson and Trump have gone back and forth regarding the question of faith. Trump said, “In all fairness, Ben hit me on my faith, and you don’t hit a person on his faith. I don’t know him, he knows nothing about me.” Carson had referred to Trump when he stated that he does not "deny" his faith at a campaign rally in Anaheim, California. Although, Carson later clarified that he did not mean to question Trump's faith. A recent poll released by Monmouth University found the two tied in Iowa at 23 percent support each. Furthermore, a RealClearPolitics polling average has him ahead of Carson by nearly 7 points in Iowa.
