GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina says she, Donald Trump and Ben Carson are doing well in the polls because Americans want true outsiders to take care of the mess in Washington.
"It’s a reflection of the fact that roughly 80 percent of the American people now think we have a professional political class that cares more about its own power and privilege and position than on getting anything done," Fiorina said Sunday
on "The Cats Roundtable" on AM 970 in New York.
But the political class has failed at solving the issues Americans care about, whether it is immigration, education, the economy, or holding bloated government accountable, Fiorina told host John Catsimatidis.

Fiorina reiterated her criticism of Trump for going after debate moderator Megyn Kelly for asking him tough questions.
"I think insulting people just because they ask you a tough question isn’t appropriate," she said. "I don’t think that the business of personal insults helps. I don't think it solves problems, and I don’t think it helps the American people understand what someone will do if they're elected president of the United States."
As for her priorities if elected, Fiorina said she wants to grow the economy through small, family-owned businesses, cut the size of government and restore America as a world leader.
"The world is a very dangerous and tragic place when we're not leading," she said.
