Carson Now Most Favorable GOP Candidate

Despite his rampant controversy, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson remains the most favorable candidate by far.

The Hill reports:

Jeb Bush and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) rounds out the 2016 GOP field’s top five.

The poll of 263 self-identified Republicans, conducted Nov. 4-8, has a 7-point margin of error.

Trump leads Carson with 24.8 percent to the former doctor’s 24.4 percent, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average.
