The Key Campaign Person Ben Carson Chooses Not To Have--And Why

If you want to look really good on any given day, what do you do? You look in the mirror. "How does this outfit make me look?" "Will people think I look good?" And the mirror responds.

For a campaigning presidential candidate, a campaign pollster is that mirror. How did people respond to that one comment you made yesterday on climate change? How could you tweak it to be more likable? And so forth.

But Ben Carson says he doesn't want one. And it's for that exact reason of tweaking yourself to make people like you better--instead of just being you.

In a recent Facebook post, Carson shared:

"The first question, which gets asked quite a bit, has to do with polling. First, allow me to say we don’t have a campaign pollster. I don’t need someone to tell me what I believe. I didn’t decide to enter the race to say what is most politically expedient. I decided to run because I fear for my country and the future of our children and grandchildren. So when people ask me what 'my polls' say, they say nothing because I don’t have any."

What a bold move, coming from a political newbie who might feel the extra need for feedback! What do you think of Carson's choice not to have a campaign pollster? If it were you, would you? Let us know! We love to hear from you!
