Though his polling position has suffered as national security took priority over other election issues, political newcomer Ben Carson is among the ‘outsider’ candidates that have resonated with voters thus far in the 2016 presidential cycle. Some critics think the retired neurosurgeon might have overplayed that hand, however, with a recent statement regarding his likely popularity as a president.

In Las Vegas this week following Tuesday’s debate, Carson predicted that his approach to the issues facing the nation would be largely unappreciated by American voters.

“If I’m successful in this endeavor to become president of the United States,” he acknowledged, “it’s very likely I would be a one-term president.”

In order to address the “tough things we have to attack,” he said that the next president must lead the nation down a different path.

Through his comments, CBS News’ Reena Flores wrote, Carson “seemed to be asserting that he’d lose a second term because the difficult things he’d tackle would not be considered politically popular, or politically correct.”

His frank assessment of a likely one-term Carson administration resonated with some of his fans, though his admission concerned plenty of others.

Such intraparty splintering, he warned, is exactly what Democrats would like to see take place on the other side of the aisle.

 if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.
