Results of a new poll show that Americans are fed up with career politicians and the establishment Republican base. In a Citizens United poll, Dr. Ben Carson came out as the top pick out of 2016 GOP presidential candidates.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker came in second by just .1 percent.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) came in third at 15.9 percent, and real estate mogul Donald Trump came in at fourth place with 13.1 percent.

Citizens United, an organization for limited government, surveyed its members across America to find out whom they are currently supporting in the full field of GOP presidential candidates.

According to Citizens United, roughly 4,300 individuals took its online survey – not a scientific poll – on June 16th to June 23rd.

“These results make one thing perfectly clear: grassroots conservatives are fed up with the failed status quo and want their next president to be an outsider with the guts to take on the establishment in Washington, D.C,” stated David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United, in a press release announcing the poll results.
