    He won't receive many.

    The only chance you can vote for him is if you are a Republican voting in the primary.

    I do not believe the vast majority of R voters will cast a vote for him. He cannot win the general election. He will not have the backing of the big donors or the party itself.

    Obviously a very smart man but that doesn't make him a good candidate. Can't see him getting far.

    I wish he'd win the primary so we could put that whole "black people will vote for black politicians" myth to sleep. Too bad he's an idiot with very little political backing.

    Neurosurgeons are not idiots.
    He is very intelligent and just because he doesn't bow down to liberal ideas and speaks what everyone else is afraid to say don't make him an idiot.

    I would vote for him if I thought he had a shot, but he don't.

    Myth, you mean about 95% fact. Ask the districts where 90% voted for Obama.

    True...it's all about the (D) by their name, not the color of their skin or the content of their character. As a guy said on CNN one time when asked why blacks don't support black Republicans, "If they were really black, they'd be Democrats" whatever that means.

    You think a majority of blacks will vote for Carson? No way, that aint going to happen...unless he changes parties.

    No they won't vote him unless he is a Dem.

    FWIW I really like Dr Carson and would have no problem voting for him...in factI very well may if he's still in the race by the time the primary gets to Kentucky next May.
