Pollster Zogby: Tough Race Ahead for Both Carson and Fiorina

By    |   Tuesday, 05 May 2015 07:11 PM

Neither Dr. Ben Carson nor Carly Fiorina has much of a chance of clinching the GOP nomination for the 2016 presidential race, veteran pollster John Zogby, CEO of Zogby Analytics, tells Newsmax TV.

"Ben Carson — very smart, iconic guy, gives a fantastic speech. But I'm just not sure of him as a candidate yet," Zogby said of the renowned African American neurosurgeon and raising conservative star.

"I've seen a few public appearances, television appearances, one on one, that suggest to me just not ready to deal in the world of policy and politics."

Then again, Zogby added, Carson "could catch fire because you hear some buzz about [him] and actually his polling numbers are not bad either in Iowa or nationally."

Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlitt-Packard, has her own uphill battle ahead.

"She's very vulnerable as a CEO, which is supposed to be her strength. She was not a good candidate when she ran against Barbara Boxer [for senate in California]. There is a certain lack of affability that she projects," Zogby said.

"She may be positioning herself for the ticket as the only [Republican] woman in the race … but still she's got to develop a better political persona."

Zogby said Fiorina's laying off of employees when she ran the computer giant Hewlett-Packard may also be used against her.

"It may not be fair but it's out there. She was a CEO and with CEO comes both the limousine and the name recognition. An iconic persona on one hand, but also there's a lot of layoffs."
