Carson catching Trump, but headlines & Iowa still missing the bigger picture

Some good competition...
TheWeek: Ben Carson is tied with Donald Trump in Iowa in the latest Monmouth University Poll released Monday, marking the first time that a GOP contender has closed the gap in Trump's lead in the primary. Both Carson and Trump got 23 percent support from Iowa's Republican voters, while former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina came in third with 10 percent of the vote. None of the other candidates in the Republican field eked out double-digit support.

Aside from marking the big moment in which Trump no longer leads the rest of the GOP field by a wide margin, the poll also provides an illuminating look at what Iowa voters value in a Republican presidential candidate. None of the poll's top three contenders (Trump, Carson, and Fiorina) comes from a political background; all are considered outsider candidates.
And an arguably better chronology...

Sure, they may not be from Washington, but that doesn't necessarily exclude them from the characteristics of Washington. Now from the records, Carson is clearly the least offensive; however, it should be noted that Iowa's still missing out on the BEST of a golden opportunity when it comes to the most conservative choices...

Comparitively, I could emphasize of the guy with the most green lights, that just because he's in Washington, doesn't make him of Washington. I know that's a rarity these days, but the collective hatred from both sides of the Washington Establishment should confidently prove that without a shadow of a doubt.
