Famed Neurosurgeon and Presidential hopeful Dr.Ben Carson, is keeping a low profile. Carson only gained 2.3 percent of votes in the New Hampshire primary, RealClearPolitics.com reported. Carson skipped parties and posted a few comments on his social media pages. According to Gawker, a party in Carson’s honor was so boring that the bartender started knitting. The attendance at the party was also very low with only about 50 attendees. Carson went to twitter to thank supporters.
“Thank you to all of our amazing volunteers in New Hampshire who gave their time to help out the campaign,” Carson tweeted. In another tweet, Carson kept a positive attitude. “Our nation faces grave national security threats. We must act decisively to protect American citizens from terrorists at home and abroad,” he posted.
After addressing his concerns for the nation on twitter, Carson went on to tweet a photo shaking hands and meeting businesses in South Carolina. The next primary election set for the end of February, will be held there. Carson will get a chance to make a comeback after failing to impress voters in Iowa and New Hampshire.
Carson’s social media accounts have millions of followers combined but his competitors have managed to grab the attention of more voters and boost momentum.
While Carson clings to his campaign, some of the bottom performers in the GOP are starting to drop out. Carson could join the group if he fails to draw more voters to his campaign. Carly Fiorina was among the lowest performers in the New Hampshire primary. Fiorina announced that she was ending her presidential campaign the day after election results were released. Gov. Chris Christie headed back to New Jersey after a poor performance in the New Hampshire polls. Christie ended his bid for President and joined Fiorina at the sidelines. According to Real Clear Politics, Fiorina came in seventh with 4.1 percent of the vote. Christie took sixth place with 7.4 percent of the vote. Carson finished last among all GOP candidates but continues to campaign for the South Carolina primary.
