to hear on the trail. >> do you think during this debate we're going to see this week, him not be so nice to try to combat what trump is saying? >> no, he said he's going to run a positive campaign and i actually believe him. dr. carson is at his heart just like a really nice guy. when you listen to him talk about his past, his future, what he wants to do for the fridcoun he's not combative, nothing like trump. that shows an interesting contrast and i think we'll see the polls change. trump is going to after him and carson for his team they're hoping he'll deflect it >> how big of a debate is this for donald trump? in the past all of this seemed new and novel. i'm the greatest and we're going to do so much winning you'll get tired of winning. we've heard all this but we want to hear specifics. how important is this debate to donald trump in. >> the last debate in cleveland watching people watch this, they were looking for other people. is there anybody else and donald trump still won the day, still sort of new and novel like you say but i think this debate he's
