This Has Nothing To Do With Alan Greenspan | - Part 2

Carson in Control?

According to the latest NBC/WSJ poll as detailed in the latter today from which the graphic below was swiped, the long-awaited denouement of Donal Trump may be at hand, engineered by none other than Dr. Ben Carson.

Before long, you’re probably going to be reading headlines like the one above.
