    No because he's an insanely radical right wing bigoted asshole.

    Yes, but he is too candid and honest to ever win.

    I wouldn't vote for him for dog catcher. Because I don't like the guy.

    I voted no.

    The sum total of the man's political experience is having given one radically controversial speech at a prayer breakfast.

    I agree with some of the "proposals" he made and I disagree with some others, but all he really presented were broad and bold ideas. I haven't heard any follow up from him on how he proposes such radical changes would actually be implimented.

    In all honesty, I can give a speech as good or better than Dr. Carson's.

    It wouldn't qualify me to be president by any means.

    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    I wonder if you have read his position on the issues.

    I'd consider him I suppose, but I'd prefer someone with more political experience, more foreign policy experience, and less socially conservative.

    I don't know enough about him other than the Prayer Breakfast thing.

    In the case of a not well known figure like this one, it might help to list what he stands for. Without knowing that it is impossible to say.
