Dr. Ben Carson told Sean Hannity tonight that his surge in the polls means that people are actually listening to what the candidates are saying and recognizing the failed policies of Democrats.

Carson said that his lack of political experience isn't a negative, as the "political class" would have people believe.

He acknowledged that it's important to be surrounded by experienced people, but said that wisdom is the most important quality in a leader.

"Wisdom is very hard to come across," Carson said. "There are a lot of fools who have Ph.D.s."
