Over at The Weekly Standard today, Bill Kristol put up poll results from South Carolina. Although the pollster wished to remain anonymous, Bill explained, he was unaffiliated with any of the campaigns and is both “honest” and “competent.” Here’s where his work indicates that matters now stand:
- Trump 32
- Cruz 26
- Rubio 20
- Bush 10
- Carson 7
- Kasich 2
In re which, a friend left this note in my inbox:
If Bill’s friend’s numbers are right, Jeb needs to get out of this race … for the good of the Republic.
Things are getting serious — and the phrase “for the good of the Republic” does indeed apply, does it not? And it goes without saying that if the moment has come for Jeb, then it has come as well for Dr. Carson and Gov. Kasich.
Gentlemen, it’s time.Published in
