Trailing at 7%.
You saw that you don't Jeb Bush didn't put his name into -- nomination bottom line the Republican Party is dispirited they want alternatives.

Bob doctor Ben Carson now you may remember at the national prayer -- breakfast a few months ago he lit into the president.
Over obamacare with a president sitting right there -- theory is yesterday's seat back Nicholas.

And Gary was seat back and -- from our understanding he's the guy who insisted he wanna be part of the straw -- -- he got cleaned up people like Ryan.
Is Iraq I think there was no clues -- I would think -- -- bush fatigue that that the country we've talked about is even infecting the right here which is why they wanna go for fresh face like Carson or at all.
-- the grass roots.
Tea Party sentiment that's not just the highest stab -- as well -- fiscal conservative.
-- only it is anti establishment it was changed from the Ottawa why not invite governor Chris Christian who is -- -- Yeah of course of course -- in the closer Bob McDonnell.
Should have -- have -- -- the most personal most popular governor of all fifty states is the highest approval rating and he's a Republican and a blue state.
And he -- conservatives and they don't warrant issue for the Republican Party do they need to be more include policy forever because you can't win with justice opportunity -- -- -- party and exclude.
People who -- -- -- they need to make a change on gay marriage on immigration to be more inclusive.
I think need to -- to let people feel they're not against them -- more important therefore something.
And particularly for growth for opportunity I think and by the way in being the anti establishment party.
Of main street against the corruption whether it's in Washington Walter being a Washington party doesn't work for them absolutely right if they're really young people back.
They need libertarians.
And that means openness and so and so they're both these guys are right Greg and his whole seat back thing was -- with.
