Before the Republican field grew and grew to its current list of 17 candidates, and before Donald Trump captured the media spotlight, both Rand Paul and Ben Carson were gaining a lot of supporters everyday.  In the latest polls, they’re now in the middle of the pack.  In the Real Clear Politics average of 6 top national polls for the week of August 2nd, 2015, Senator Paul is at 5.2% and Dr. Carson is at 6.0%, very close and trailing 5 other candidates with Trump all the way up at 22%.

Our CAGE MATCH prediction:  Ben Carson by a nose, and more than likely his best role will be as a potential VP running mate to another leading candidate like Walker, Bush, Cruz, or perhaps even Trump.  Senator Paul is doing a good job in the Senate and should stay there and continue his work.  May the best candidate prevail!
