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?

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
