Political newcomers Donald Trump and Dr. Ben Carson are tied at the top of GOP presidential candidates, a poll of Pennsylvania voters shows.

The survey by Mercyhurst University Center for Applied Politics, released Monday, stacks the Republican field as:
  • Carson: 18 percent
  • Trump: 18 percent
  • Jeb Bush: 9 percent
  • Carly Fiorina: 8 percent
  • New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie: 4 percent
  • Florida Sen. Marco Rubio: 4 percent
  • Texas Sen. Ted Cruz: 4 percent
  • Mike Huckabee: 4 percent
  • Ohio Gov. John Kasich: 3 percent
  • Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul: 3 percent
  • Rick Santorum: 3 percent
  • Undecided: 17 percent

Carson dominates polling on favorability, the poll also finds:
  • Carson: 70 percent
  • Rubio: 62 percent
  • Bush: 59 percent
  • Fiorina: 58 percent
  • Trump: 57 percent.

But Paul dominates the "unfavorable" polling, and Carson is the most favored.
  • Paul: 45 percent
  • Trump: 40 percent
  • Christie: 39 percent
  • Santorum: 39 percent
  • Cruz: 39 percent
  • Bush: 34 percent
  • Huckabee: 32 percent
  • Cruz: 26 percent
  • Kasick: 23 percent
  • Rubio: 17 percent
  • Fiorina: 17 percent
  • Carson: 13 percent
The survey also found a sizable majority, 57 percent, of Pennsylvania Republicans want to see someone from outside the political establishment get into the White House in 2016, though the pollster noted, "it is uncertain if this will translate into victory for Carson, Trump, or Fiorina" in Pennsylvania's April primary.

But the latest Real Clear Politics averaging of national polls also finds that GOP voters around the nation are craving outsiders in the White House too, with real estate billionaire Trump leading the field with 22.8 percent support, followed by retired pediatric neurosurgeon Carson, at 17.3 percent, and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Fiorina at 11 percent.
