Why GOP Establishment Presidential Candidates Should Be Absolutely Terrified

A new poll shows Donald Trump and Ben Carson far ahead of the rest of the GOP presidential field, but that’s not what should make establishment Republicans so nervous…

…It’s whom the Trump and Carson supporters would back if either candidate dropped out of the race.

In a Fox News poll released Tuesday, Trump and Carson dominated the competition, with 24% and 23%, respectively. Senator Ted Cruz came in third, with Senator Marco Rubio and former Governor Jeb Bush rounding out the top five.

Carson was the Republican named most often as a second choice candidate, followed by Trump and Rubio, with Carly Fiorina in fourth and Senator Cruz in fifth.
