I can’t find anything about this yet on the NBC site but now that five or six people have tweeted some version of this, it must have been on MTP this morning:
Post-Debate Poll (NBC) Trump 23% Cruz 13% Carson 11% Fiorina 8% Rubio 8% Bush 7% Walker 7% That's quite a 1, 2, 3…

I’m not surprised by Trump, but Cruz and Carson? Cruz came across as the assholic law nerd that he is, and Carson….in a night filled with disturbing moments, the most disturbing moment was when a successful neurosurgeon suggested that tithing — not a variant of tithing set at 23.8% with earned income tax credits or whatever but actual tithing in the strictest sense — should become our new tax system.
It may be something as simple as the fact that no one else talked about the Bible that much, so Carson is just picking up that portion of the electorate.
Great watching the wingers whine about this poll. Actually, methodology of poll might be weird.
