Campaign Deathwatch: Ben Carson to Drop?

Presidential candidate and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson’s polling numbers have been falling faster than President Obama’s impressive golf score.

The candidate, who was the focus of a short round of scrutiny lead by CNN has been unable to recover from what many considered gaps in integrity in the retelling of his life story.

Carson was the only candidate to outpoll Trump by a sliver in August with support of 24.8% among Republican voters.

Since then the candidate that had solidly been in the number two spot for most of the year by a large margin, has dropped to fourth place behind Trump, Cruz, and Rubio.

Despite impressive fundraising efforts, insiders tell Liberty News Now that spending has been put on hold and campaign staffers have started to look around for other opportunities.

Obviously, those two signs place the campaign on deathwatch.

Political insiders believe the doctor who captured the hearts, minds and political support of a strong portion of the conservative vote will drop shortly following the Iowa Caucus.
