york city, i'm jeff glore. this is the "cbs overnight news." welcome to the "overnight news." lineups set for the republican debates. it will look different. donald trump and ben carson center stage. surrounded by john kasich. jeb bush. marco rubio. ted cruz, carly fiorina. ted cruz, carly fiorina. and rand paul. four candidates in the polls will join an earlier debate. lindsay graham and george pataki were not invited this time. latest poll of likely gop voters shows donald trump, leading carson by two points. 25% to 23%. carson is fighting off charges he embellished part of his life story. including whether he was offered a full scholarship to west point. he sat down with john dickerson of "face the nation."
>> dr. carson. wanted to start with back and forth that took a place in a note in your autobiography. being offered a spot at west point. here's something you said at a press conference friday. >> i never said i received a full scholarship. wait a minute. don't lie. i never said that i received a full scholarship. nowhere did i say that. >> full scholarship is how west point refers to the tuition program. you told charlie rose about a full scholarship back on october 9. let's listen to that. >> i was offered a full scholarship to west point, meet general west moreland, my pathway would be medicine. >> straighten all this out for us. >> i said it was offered. i didn't say i received it. it was, in the process of a -- a banquet. a lot of military officials there. they were very impressed with my incredible rise to city
executive officer. done that before. and said, well we would be able to get you a full scholarship to west point. i said, that's wonderful. and i was very flattered by that. but i had already determined that i was going to go to -- onto college and onto medical school. so, you know, that's what happened. i said i was offered that. that was not something that i wanted to take. i have tremendous admiration for west point. which is why i included the story. tremendous admiration for the people who served in our country. but, you know for people to try to take this and twist it. and make it seem look something dishonest. it seems like dishonesty itself. >> the scrutiny you are receiving. senator obama received some about his autobiography. hillary clinton got things wrong in the stories she told.
this seems to be a -- something that happens to candidates. do you think you are getting a special scrutiny with, with these investigations that you referred to? >> there is no question i am getting special scrutiny. because, you know there are a lot of people who are very threatened. and then, you know they seem recent head to head polling against hillary. and how well i do. and they're worried. no question about it. and every single day, every other day, or every week. you know they're going to come out with you said this when you were 13. you did this. you did. and the whole point is to -- distract the populus. distract me. you have a real scandal. something that is really important. let's talk about that. you know. yesterday, "the wall street journal" comes out and says, well he reports in this book he took the psychology course. we went to yale. there was no such psychology
course. there was no such scam. what happened to investigative reporting. because we were able to find the article. and it will be coming out in the next day or two. showing what happened with that psychology course. why could we find it and they could not find it? why do people put this stuff out there to make the accusation, to try to make somebody seem dishonest. when it is disproven. oh. let's talk about something else. you said this in kindergarten. give me a break. so many important things need to be talked about. >> let me ask you a question something you wrote this week, a very popular post on facebook you wrote. answering questions, supporters had brought up in terms of your political experience. you said, the signers of the declaration independence, people were not professional politicians on the list. but the founder/presidents were people who were men in public life. or they had been in the cut and thrust of public conversation for a long time.
in your background? >> i would say we all have and that our country was designed for citizens, statesman, not career politicians. and i have had, lots of experiences in life, growing up, experiencing every single economic level. a whole multitude of different jobs. appointed neurosurgery at a young age. it wasn't on the map. working very hard over the years to establish it as a very important program. and in the united states. so by 2008. u.s. news and world report ranked it number one in the nation. experience on corporate boards. international. business. as well as domestic business. starting a national scholars program which is active in all 50 states. reading room program that have won national award that are only given to one organization.
out of tens of thousands. that's a lot of experience. and in terms of the two and 3:00 in the morning phone call. you have to make a life and death decision, i am sure i have had more of that than any other running combined. >> let me ask you about a question in new hampshire. wm of the r poll showed the biggest problem facing the state. according to voters. 25% of the people thought drug problem facing voters there. as the a doctor what is your where does it come from? how should it best we treated? >> well, you know, there are all kind of addictions. usually addictions occur in people who are vulnerable. who are lacking something in their lives. we have to really start asking ourselves, what have we taken
what are some of the values and principles that allowed us to ascend the ladder of success so rapidly to the very pinnacle. and the highest pinnacle any one else had ever reached. throwing away values and principles for the sake of political correctness. now, let me specifically talk is going on. that is very alarming. heroin addiction. there is a, a transportation of heroin through our southern borders that is unimaginable. sheriffs. stashes. stuff through here. that's why the price has gone down so low. you can purchase it so ease. this is not a good thing for us. we need to not give up on the war on drugs. certainly not to facilitate it. we can do this. will to do it. >> dr. ben carson in puerto rico for us.
