Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson is surging in the polls, as "Washington outsiders" continue to dominate the field.

Carson told Sean Hannity that people often come up to him and encourage him to be who he is and never back down.

“People are used to double-talk. And they’re used to politicians saying whatever is politically expedient,” Carson explained. "Right now, they're looking for something that they can truly believe in."

Hannity noted it's interesting that Donald Trump and Carson are leading the polls, as they appear to have diametrically opposed personalities.

"We’re not looking like people who are going to be corralled by the political establishment," Carson explained. "I’m not going to let someone sit there and pull my strings."
