Mike Barnicle on Ben Carson being so far ahead in the polls

Continuing the conversation on the Republican field of presidential candidates, Mike Barnicle tries to wrap his head around why outsider candidate Ben Carson is so far ahead in the polls and traditional candidates like former Florida Governor Jeb Bush continue to struggle: “I have no explanation for Ben Carson. I have an understanding of the evangelical base, but I have no comprehension of why he has stayed so strong for so long. I do think many of his supporters are like people sitting at a bus stop—waiting for the right candidate to come by to get on that bus.” Watch the Morning Joe conversation from Wichita State University here.
