Carson: Campaign 'Not in Disarray'

GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson, whose once top-tier polling has been sinking like a stone, insists his campaign is "not in disarray at all" – and says voters are increasingly paying attention to his message.

In an interview on Fox Business Network's "Varney & Co.," the retired pediatric neurosurgeon said changes in the wake of the departure of two key staffers are paying off.

The campaign is "not in disarray at all," Carson said. "Esprit de corps is at the highest it's ever been. There are a host of things that were incorrect. We brought what we needed to bring in to fix that."

Carson's once-surging campaign was hit in November with media scrutiny of his personal biography – followed by staff turmoil.

At the same time, his standing in national polling averages has slipped from No. 1 on Nov. 5, with 26.8 percent, to No. 4 as of Wednesday, with 8 percent, according to Real Clear Politics.

But Carson says it's not too late, answering a question if there's "enough time to turn this around," by asserting: "I do think so."

Saying crowds in Iowa, where caucuses are held Feb. 1, have been significant, and that in two cases, "double" events had to be given to accommodate the "hundreds of people" left standing in line.

"That shows there is something that is beginning to happen," he said. "As we get closer to D-Day, people are starting to listen to what is being said."
