Republicans really like Ben Carson

New Washington Post/ABC polling shows
Republican voters like Ben Carson more than other top candidates, though Donald Trump retains a high favorability rating, too.

And there's Marco Rubio coming up on the outside .....

The poll also evaluated opinions on Jeb Bush (highest unfavorable score) and Ted Cruz. Everybody else, including the man formerly from Arkansas, Mike Huckabee? Pollsters apparently didn't bother with them.

The article notes the polling was done before some recent reporting on Carson's pattern of exaggeration and his prickly response to such reporting. Given the Republican base, I suspect Carson's numbers will only rise from his attack on media. Hell, nobody ever picked on Bill or Hillary Clinton like they have been picking on Dr. Carson. Right, Trey? Right, Mr. Starr?
