The only identifying African-American running for President, retired neurosurgeon, Dr. Ben Carson trails behind television personality and real estate developer Donald Trump in the polls. Carson continues to turn heads with his use of divisive language and controversial comments.

Among Republican voters in North Carolina Trump leads Carson by only 1 point, according to an Elon University poll released on Saturday. He visited Raleigh in June for the North Carolina Republican Party’s three-day annual state convention.

The American public was quick to point out that he himself belongs to a group historically held from public office.

We invite you to share with us what you think about Dr. Carson and his recent behavior. Do you think he should be in the race?
