Bear in mind, this poll doesn't take into account any feelings America may or may not have following last week's Presidential debate, but the sentiment it demonstrates is significant. Dr. Ben Carson is listed as the Republican favorite and not Donald Trump in a national poll released today.
Last week, CBS and the NYT had a similar poll, which also showed Carson leading Trump among Republican voters, but since the underlying agency leaned Democrat, most news outlets dismissed the poll as an outlier. Today, NBC and WSJ substantiated the findings, noting that the Trump-mentum that had propelled the real estate mogul to the top of the pack for months, seems to have plateaued.
Ben Carson has surged into the lead of the Republican presidential race, getting support from 29 percent of GOP primary voters, according to a brand-new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
That's the highest percentage any GOP candidate has obtained so far in the survey.
