Dr. Ben Carson is still holding on desperately to his presidential campaign, despite the fact that two candidates who beat him in New Hampshire just dropped out. When CNN host Jake Tapper asked Carson whether or not he was considering leaving the race, Carson cited his supporters as his reason for staying.

“I’m not just gonna walk away from the millions of people who support me.”

Tapper reminded Carson of his current standings in the race and asked him what states he believed he could possibly win. Carson replied that he felt fairly confident that he could win South Carolina, which is the next stop in the primary race. He currently is in fifth place in the state. Tapper then asked the candidate what strategies he would put into place to change from fifth to first in the polls and Carson could only reply,

“You’ll see.”

We sure will, Doctor.
