Alter-Christie debate GOP panic at the popularity of Trump-Carson. Consensus: Carson’s a nice man waaay over his head as commander-in-chief and Trump’s not a nice man whose mass deportation plans could destroy Republican chances in 2016. So why their poll numbers? Ron says GOP base is “angry,” Jon says they “ignorant and extreme.” Whatever the reason, the candidates are pretending that the Obama economy is awful despite unemployment at 5% not 10%. Last Mizzou: Ron & Jon agree that while PC is bad, institutional racism at schools is worse. Context counts.
