The Outsiders

Currently the top two contenders in the Republican Party primary race are outsiders.  From CBS to ABC, Monmouth to Quinnipiac they are the only ones with poll numbers in the double digits.

An RCP Average of the polls give Trump 29.8 and Carson 17.8, a significant margin over the next closest runner up Bush III at 7.8.  Together the two outsiders muster 47.6% of the support of Republicans, throw in another party outsider (Carly Fiorina) and you're over 51%.

This is a powerful message from Republican voters, do you think the Republican Party is going to hear it? Do you think it means anything?  Do you think it bodes well or ill?
