Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson has won over the hearts of Republican caucus-goers in Iowa, taking the place of rival candidate Donald Trump. This makes the retired neurosurgeon the favorite choice at 28% – now 9 percentage points beyond Trump’s 19%.

The more interesting thing is why Iowa’s conservatives love Carson so much. According to a recent poll from the Des Moines Register and Bloomberg, Carson is surging in the state because he hates Muslims and consistently makes outlandish remarks about the Holocaust and slavery. He also has zero political experience – which isn’t a deterrent in the least for conservatives.

To make a long story short, these Republicans adore Carson because he reminds them of themselves. Here are some of the poll’s most disturbing findings:

Perhaps the even more hilarious finding is that an overwhelming 96% of these Iowa Republicans valued the retired neurosurgeon’s “common sense,” a trait that most of us know GOPers – especially Ben Carson – have very little of.
