Carson Beats Trump in Georgia, Rubio Closes the Gap

The latest Georgia primary poll by Fox 5/Morris News has revealed that Ben Carson has come out on top for the Republicans, followed closely by Donald Trump, and Ted Cruz.

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

  • Ben Carson – 26%
  • Donald Trump – 24%
  • Ted Cruz – 14%
  • Marco Rubio – 9%
  • Jeb Bush – 8%

Both Carson and Trump led the Republicans in this poll. For months, these two candidates have been the leaders and the most likely candidates to get nominated on numbers alone. However, Cruz is quickly closing the gap and establishing himself as a respectable Republican candidate that is more closely aligned with the GOP establishment.

If elected, Cruz provides a certain level of conservative stability and he brings a lot of experience that he earned through his time in the U.S. Senate. While his ideas are strange at times, he far more tame than both Trump and Carson and he is more focused on traditional Republican values.

If voters are looking for a break from traditional Republican values, both Carson and Trump will be the candidates to elect. Trump brings a sense of confidence and arrogance that some voters may find attractive in a world leader, while Carson brings a calm and calculated approach that is rooted in religion.
