While it seems clear that the loser of this week’s CNBC debate debacle was CNBC (and in many ways, the mainstream media as a whole), I was and am really curious to see post-debate polling.  Watching the debate, I couldn’t help but think that those ill-prepared, condescending, and generally unpleasant moderators…

Jonah Goldberg points out something that the MSM has been purposely ignoring: Carson has the highest favorables of any candidate in the GOP field.
