Republican presidential candidate Lindsey Graham told Newsmax TV Tuesday that front-runner Donald Trump is only fooling himself if he thinks American voters believe that he truly cares about Ben Carson's mental fitness for the White House.

"I'm so glad that Donald is worried about Ben's problems," the South Carolina senator told "The Steve Malzberg Show" in an interview. "That's probably why he repeats them every 30 seconds."

In recent attacks on the retired pediatric neurosurgeon, who has surpassed him in several polls, Trump suggested that Carson might have a mental illness because he disclosed his "pathological temper" as a youth in Detroit in his 1996 autobiography.

"Does he think we're all that stupid?" Graham asked. "Does Donald really believe that anybody buys the idea that he cares about Ben Carson's problems?"

He said that Ted Cruz was "well positioned" to eventually win the nomination should Carson drop out of the race.

"If something happened to Carson, some of the voters would go to Cruz," Graham said. "At the end of the day, you've got four or five people who would be really good candidates."

"I include myself in that list, but how do you beat Hillary Clinton? You have to get more votes than she does."

The senator, who did not make the undercard debate in Milwaukee, slammed the polling used to determine which candidates would make the contest.

"I can't explain this whole use of polling," he told Malzberg. "It's an absurd process."

"What I would do is give everybody a voice, divide the fill-up, give us a chance to have our say — and let the voters decide, not some pollster."
