Jeb Bush’s Campaign Is Collapsing As Voters Say No More Bushes In The White House

Jeb-Bush-frown
Jeb Bush’s has raised loads of super PAC money, but it isn’t helping him with voters as early state polls show that Bush’s campaign is completely bombing.

A new PPP poll of New Hampshire revealed that Jeb Bush has fallen into a tie for fourth in the state that was supposed to be his firewall. Bush trails Donald Trump 32%-7%. He also trails Trump in a head to head match up 56%-33%.

The big finding in the poll was that Bush is struggling with conservatives, “Bush is really struggling. Only 38% of primary voters have a favorable opinion of him to 41% with a negative one. This is largely a function of his unpopularity with conservatives- among voters who identify themselves as ‘very conservative’ just 34% have a positive opinion of him to 48% who have a negative one. Only 3% say he’s their first choice for the nomination, putting him in a tie for 8th place with that group.”

The latest Monmouth University poll of South Carolina revealed that Bush is trailing Trump 30%-9%. Bush has a net positive favorability in South Carolina, but he isn’t what the electorate there wants. According to the poll, “South Carolina GOP primary voters say that, regardless of who they support in the primary, the country needs a president from outside of government who can bring a new approach to Washington (61%) rather than someone with government experience who knows how to get things done (28%).”

Bush is also getting crushed in Iowa according to the Suffolk University poll. Bush is in seventh place in Iowa, where he trails Trump 17%-5%.

These early state polls show that Jeb Bush’s run for the White House has been nothing short of a disaster, but it isn’t just Republicans who are rejecting Bush. Jeb Bush has trailed Hillary Clinton in every national poll general election hypothetical, as it is clear that voters do not want a return to the Bush years.

The Republican National Committee tried to frontload the nominating process in order to avoid a repeat of 2012, but their efforts have backfired and may make it easier for an outsider like Trump to capitalize on early momentum and run away with the nomination. If Bush doesn’t win early, it will difficult for him to make up ground if the party rallies around an outsider.

Jeb Bush is failing because there is no reason for him to be running. What is the point of his campaign? Bush is there because the Republican Party couldn’t afford to let one of the crazies be their nominee. Bush was supposed to be the most electable Republican, but Democrats, Republicans, and Independents don’t like him.

While Hillary Clinton has struggled, outside of New Hampshire, polls show that she is still running away with the Democratic nomination. Bush isn’t leading anywhere, which is why he is desperately both attacking and impersonating Donald Trump on the campaign trail.

The media has exaggerated Clinton’s struggles while ignoring the collapse of the Jeb Bush campaign. One of the most underreported stories of the early 2016 campaign is that voters are loudly saying no to another Bush in the White House.

  1. All of them are insane clowns but for the life of me how can anyone follow trump after here him speak on anything? Master race may ass

  2. It doesn’t matter how badly Jeb does in the campaign or debates he has already been chosen by the right wingers who really matter over the base. I do think that Kasich will be his choice for vice presidential running mate. tRUMP is the one who’s really losing ground but the media glosses over and inflates his numbers. tRUMP doesn’t stand a snowballs chance in hell of getting the nomination, he’s about to get a rude awakening.

  3. Awwwwww, poor baby!!! Pride comes before the fall. Bush ran for the Presidency because he’s a Bush. He thought the name would get him in the WH. The fact that he has no message is normal for Republican politicians these days

  4. …things that have really pissed people off about Bush:
    1}Cat-tail reeds have more spine than JEB…
    2}JEB was running for president before he actually declared so he could raise cash illegally…{Good luck gettin’ FEC to charge him!!!}
    3}JEBs rules change according to wind direction…look how long it took JEB to get the “RIGHT” answer about the Iraq War…

  5. Oh my. Scott Walker, formerly NH Republicans’ #1, now down to #5 as Trump runs circles around everyone else in PPP’s latest poll.

    Trump laps the Republican field with 35% to 11% for John Kasich, 10% for Carly Fiorina, 7% each for Jeb Bush and Scott Walker, 6% for Ben Carson, 4% each for Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio, and 3% for Rand Paul. Candidates falling outside the top ten in the state are Rick Perry at 2%, Lindsey Graham, George Pataki, and Rick Santorum at 1%, and Jim Gilmore, Mike Huckabee, and Bobby Jindal all at less than 1%. Everyone does have at least one supporter on this poll. […]
    The candidate who’s made the most cataclysmic drop is Walker- he’s gone from leading at 24% all the way down to 7% in this newest poll.

  6. Well, let’s see…. Of his 21 current advisers, all but two of them worked for his idiot brother…(sarcasm) gee, what a surprise that people don’t want another Bush in the White House! (end sarcasm).
    I wrote a Facebook note two months before he announced his candidacy detailing why he shouldn’t run for President. Apparently, his advisers read it because Ol’ JEB (which is an acronym for the man’s real name, John Ellis Bush; calling him Jeb Bush is a redundancy) began spewing all of the BS he’s been spewing.
    In the note, I correctly told him that, because most of the VOTING majority of his party, the Progressives & Moderates, have stayed home from the polls in “protest” of the GOP, especially in the primaries, he wasn’t going to get their votes. That’s because it’s the lunatics (Cons, Tea Partiers & Libertarians) that largely vote in the primaries. Now, remember: I wrote that note BEFORE he announced & well before The HairBrained Donald announced he’s running.

  7. Here’s a scenario for you:

    Very late in the primary, after leading by huge margins, with top contenders dropping out left and right, seeing how pointless it is to continue; Trump will send out a shocker—-TRUMP QUITS THE RACE! Trump: You got Punked!

    Then comes the wild scramble to get a winner from the bottom of the barrel un-electable candidates. There will be chaos in the RNC and Republican party. Trump will be hated for ever. A Democrat wins the White House again.

    Ok, wake up….just a dream. But would be a Nightmare for Republicans IF that crazy scenario were to unfold for real.

  8. The musical chairs game continue!

    Who is going to be left out at the next round?

    The TV stations love all that drama & its revenue. And the average Joe, just could not care less…

    Poor Jeb, we know that BUSH brand, we tried and did not like it, so please go away quietly & save us the misery…

  9. Wow! Who could have predicted Jeb’s behavior? All that money and and no brains. The base has latched on to Trump. Guaranteed loser. When people ask if GOP learned anything from 2012, you just have to admit it doesn’t matter to them. Republicans as a whole are the hateful party. Classless

  10. Bush and Walker stood up on that debate stage and came off looking like imbeciles.

    Carson came off rambling and incoherent.

    Cruz was, well Cruz. Sounded good but you know he’s batshit crazy.

    Kasich made sense but his record speaks ill of him.

    Trump was the only one who spoke in fairly complete sentences and had things to say, even if they were horrible and off-color. He was his usual bombastic self, which a large percentage of Republicans think is his strong point. But at the end of the day, not a single one of them looked like they should get within 100 miles of the White House.

    They’re ALL losers. Every one of them.

  11. There’s one food, though, that has almost nothing going for it. It occupies precious crop acreage, requires fossil fuels to be shipped, refrigerated, around the world, and adds nothing but crunch to the plate.

    It’s salad, and here are three main reasons why we need to rethink it.

    Salad vegetables are pitifully low in nutrition. The biggest thing wrong with salads is lettuce, and the biggest thing wrong with lettuce is that it’s a leafy-green waste of resources

  12. It was pretty obvious from the first time I had the misfortune of gazing upon Ted Cruz’s frowning physiognomy that the facial resemblance to Joe McCarthy was a mirror into Ted’s equally dark soul, but it took me a while to realize (and the picture that accompanies this article was the kicker) that Jeb’s striking similarity to Maude Frickett is his only distinguishing trait. Put a white-haired granny wig on him and he looks exactly like Jonathan Winters’ beloved character, but without any of the qualities that made her beloved. One look at Shrub III gives me the shivers! “Something wicked this way comes…”

  13. And those polls were before his doozy of a statement today that Planned Parenthood does absolutely nothing that people would think of as womens’ health!

    Gee, I wonder what paps, mammograms, blood work, treatment for vaginal and other infections are…

    *shakes head*

  14. How ashamed of your name do you have to be to run an entire campaign on a nickname/initials “JEB!” rather than your real name?
    Stand up as John Ellis or sit down!

  15. You’ve gotta think the whole purpose behind the JEB thing is to make a subliminal appeal to the ignorant “Good Ol’
    Putzes” in the South who fly the Counterfeit flag without knowing a damn thing about the Civil War but are vaguely aware that Jeb Stuart was one of the good guys. On that note, perhaps Nathan Bedford Bush would be a more appropriate moniker.

  16. Only hope the American public remembers the name Bush for a very long time. There are a few more Bush’s out there, all grandsons of the first Bush. we must be aware they may at some time also run for the office of Pres. This name has a good chance of being on a ticket in the future. BE ON GAURD,american people, remember what the name Bush did to our country.

  17. Not all the clowns are bombing. Trump is still climbing and Fiorna is increasing in the polls. I guess people like rich people who filed bankruptcy 3x and a CEO who shipped 30,000 plus jobs overseas for cheap labor and drove a huge company into the ground.

  18. Forget about Jeb.
    Jeb is married to Columba Bush who was born in Mexico. Their son George Prescott Bush, the current Texas Land Commissioner, is the next Bush to have a shot at the nomination. Why? George Prescott Bush looks Latino.
    Google Hispanic Paradox. That is the reason Texas will turn purple before too much longer.
    Viva Raza.

  19. I’ve seen other posters on other sites saying that Cruz looks like Mr. Haney from Green Acres…McCarthy or Mr. Haney, either one of those works for me!

  20. No amount of super PACs will help Jeb get into the White House. He should just realize that the American people don’t another Bush on the hill, and for that matter Clinton either. Sanders is fighting against the establishment almost single handedly while garnering support for his boldness and original ideas from the majority of citizens across party lines. Haven’t we had enough of the status quo coercing us into accepting their perverse reality?

  21. Watching and listening to the Repub candidates, it makes me feel like I’m at a Ringling Brothers Circus event!

  22. I think JEB is as desirable as oatmeal, because he didn’t really have the passion to run in the first place. He was coerced into it because the GOP knows there is nobody else that can give Hillary any real competition. Mamma’s are always right. Nobody needs another Bush in the White House. He will end up the nominee, but he won’t win for the GOP. Trump will have his epic fail as an Independent. The GOP won’t tolerate his BS much longer. His tea baggin circus go’ers aren’t smart enough to read, let alone vote.
