Wherever Dr. Ben Carson goes, so does the grassroots army that's trying to recruit him to run for president.
Dr. Ben Carson won the Western Conservative Summit's annual presidential straw poll Sunday, capping a three-day extravaganza billed as the "rally on the right."
There's something about Ben Carson that gives many Americans great pause. Perhaps it is his plainspoken logic and calm demeanor that resonates with those who wish the former pediatric neurosurgeon and best-selling author would run for president. They are willing to put their money where their thoughts are. In less than a year, the National Draft Ben Carson for President Committee has raised $7.2 million; Dr. Carson is not involved with this new political action committee, which now boasts 95,000 individual donors and 17,000 volunteers.
Ben Carson, retired neurosurgeon-turned-conservative rock star — and an open follower of the Christian faith — likely ruffled liberal feathers with his most recent comment on abortion, during which he likened it to the biblical act of sacrificing humans.

He wouldn't declare a political party or admit to making any plans for a 2016 presidential run, but Dr. Ben Carson assured a wildly supportive audience at a National Press Club luncheon Wednesday that he has no plans to fade from the political scene.
"I find it amusing when people ask why a doctor is speaking out on public policy. Why don't they ask why a lawyer is speaking out on public policy, or why is a businessman speaking out on public policy? Why does anyone speak up on it?" asks Ben Carson, in "Can a Doctor Be President" — a video released Monday.
Ben Carson said the scandal that's emerging within the walls of the Department of Veterans Affairs is actually a blessing because it reveals some important insights to Americans: that government is truly not to be trusted.

Is there a message to the nation from Ben Carson, a man who draws both political and cultural interest for his plainspoken wisdom and inner mettle? Yes. There is.
The push for Ben Carson to run for president in 2016 is picking up steam, as a group encouraging him to run has raised more money in the first three months of this year than the group rallying behind Hillary Rodham Clinton, or those tied to Rand Paul, Marco Rubio and other potential GOP candidates.
As has been widely reported, President Obama fell into a juvenile snit after being criticized by Dr. Ben Carson at a prayer breakfast in 2013. As the story goes, the president, through the breakfast organizers, White House staff or both let it be known that he expected an apology. The good doctor declined.
People "are just completely fed up with what's going on with our nation," said Mr. Carson. "Our nation is waking up very, very rapidly. I predict in November there's going to be a sea change, and the liberals will be scratching their heads. They won't be able to figure out what happened."
Analysts are predicting this will be a grim election year for progressives, and Mr. Carson said he is seeing evidence of that on his tour to promote his latest book, "One Nation."
