    I can only suppose Carson has resigned himself early to a supposed Trump win of the Republican nomination and that his endorsement constitutes an anti-Democrat, "holding-one's-nose" sort of favor. Yet if that is the case, it harms lagging Republican candidates Cruz and Rubio with whom Carson on the whole would seem to have more in common.

    He definitely had more in common with Cruz and Rubio, which is why his endorsement is so surprising to me.

    He may think Trump is the best shot against Hillary.

    Any respect I had for Ben Carson just evaporated.

    It seems like people who value publicity, such as Carson (selling books), Palin, and various celebrities, are the ones who endorse Trump.

    It's interesting how nearly all the radio personalities have endorsed Cruz. What do you think is the reason for this?

    Carson said he wants to prevent a brokered convention, that is why he stands with Mr. Trump.

    I believe everyone has the responsibility to think about whom ever they feel will best allow our country to move in a better and more open way than it is now.

    I am seriously wondering how I can support Trump even if he is elected as the Republican person to go against who ever has the Democrat ticket winner. I will never vote democrat. That for me would mean I would vote for a third party, or vote for Trump, which he represents many aspects that I consider to be hedonistic. I consider Trump to be a chauvinistic pig. Trump is many things I taught my son not to be, trump is not a gentleman!
