JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson pulled within four points of celebrity tycoon Donald Trump in a CBS News/New York Times poll released Tuesday, but nearly two-thirds of Republican primary voters said it’s still too early to know for sure who should be the nominee.

Trump led the Republican presidential pack at 27 percent with Carson at 23 percent.

But 63 percent of Republican primary voters said it’s “too early” to choose a candidate.

There was a three-way tie for third: former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, and Sen. Marco Rubio (R). They polled at 6 percent each.

The poll was conducted among 1,021 registered voters, 376 of whom were Republican primary voters from Sept. 9 to 13. The margin of error was 6 percent.
