CNN/ORC Poll Has Jeb Bush as 2016 Presidential GOP Frontrunner at 23% … Please, This RINO Wins and the GOP is Finished



CNN has released their most recent CNN/ORC poll that shows former Florida Governor Jeb Bush leads the long list of potential GOP candidates for the Republican nominee for president in 2016. Bush came in at 23%, a 10 point lead over his next closest competitor, fellow RINO, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Physician Ben Carson comes in third, with 7% support, and Sen. Rand Paul and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee are both tied for fourth with 6%. Honestly, the last thing the GOP needs is another Bush to run for president. Sorry, but the United States is not a monarchy, no one family gets to monopolize the White House. That same sentiment goes to the Clinton’s as well.


Sorry, since when did the GOP need just one family to get presidential nominees?

Jeb Bush is the clear Republican presidential frontrunner, surging to the front of the potential GOP pack following his announcement that he’s “actively exploring” a bid, a new CNN/ORC poll found.

He takes nearly one-quarter — 23% — of Republicans surveyed in the new nationwide poll, putting him 10 points ahead of his closest competitor, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who tallied 13%.

Physician Ben Carson comes in third, with 7% support, and Sen. Rand Paul and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee are both tied for fourth with 6%.

That marks a drop in support for all but Christie and Bush from the last CNN/ORC survey of the field, conducted in November. That poll showed Bush in the lead, but only taking 14% of the vote, while Carson came in second with 11% and Christie tied Rep. Paul Ryan for fourth with 9% support.

Bush’s 10-point lead is a milestone for the potential GOP field — it marks the first time any prospective candidate has reached a lead beyond a poll’s margin of error in the past two years.

Sorry, but it is hard to imagine that Jeb Bush will win the GOP nomination when the very policies he is for make him less likely to be voted for. Each of the 5 issues below of core Republican ones, amnesty for illegals, common core, tax pledge and increased spending. He might as well run for the Democrat nomination with his position on these policies. Oh yeah, and don’t forget Jeb just quit the for-profit hospital chain Tenet Healthcare that  has benefited greatly from the Affordable Care Act. You know that Obama thing that Republicans claim they want to repeal.

      When will the Republicans learn?

      Those political winds can be a pretty turbulent thing but from an honest look at today’s dynamics, I predict Hillary Clinton & KY Gov Steve Beshear vs Rand Paul and Sen. Kelly Ayotte.

      Lots of possibilities on VPs of course and Avotte up for another senate term could be a factor. Also, a Paul/Avotte loss could toss them both pout of the Senate and 2016 already looks bad for the GOP. Might make that a Paul/Carson ticket.

      Hillary will collect over 300 electoral votes.
      SM: Could not disagree with you more. The Democrat base does not even want Hillary, she is yesterday’s news. We have seen this show already. Madame Clinton was the guaranteed winner until an unknown named Obama smoked her. This time, Obama is going to be so hated that Hillary once again will have no chance. Wait until Obamacare is fully implemented.

      To be clear, I’m no Hillary fan either and I think she’d be an advocate of much of today’s problems.

      I’m simply saying that Hillary is the most electable candidate. Who else do they have? Biden? Not a chsnce? Sanders (should he switch)? Unlikely. Warren? She doesn’t appear to be running.

      Obama isn’t running again albeit the connection thing is a good strategy. I’d say that’s a card already played and won’t have quite the bite as it did in 2014 (other than perhaps for a Biden run which is so asinine it isn’t even worthy of debate).

      Obamacare? That could be more of the GOP’s unraveling, particuraly if the Roberts Court squashes it and Republicans don’t replace it- which they won’t.

      It will be an interesting show.
      Interesting points. Good discussion.

      Here are my reasons why I thing Hillary may not be coronated Czarina of the Democrat party for 2016.

      1. Barack Obama actually is on the ballot in 2016 when you consider she was in his Cabinet as Secretary of State. Also, similar to how Democrats ran against GWB in 2008, the GOP will do the same in 2016. It difficult to justify giving Hillary Obama’s third term.

      2. Folks like Sanders may not have a chance of winning, but his far left wing, socialist leanings will force Hillary to the LEFT in a primary.

      3. Its way to early to say who is going to or not going to run. I personally believe she is running. Her words regarding the repeal of Dodd-Frank made her the liberal Democrat base’s champion. enough people will get in her ear to run. Many of which are Obama’s folks.

      4. Hillary Clinton has a lot of political baggage and no political accomplishments. People can’t name any of her accomplishments.

      Hell, Hillary couldn’t name any of her own accomplishments as Sec. of State.

      5. Hillary Clinton at Benghazi Hearing: ‘What Difference, Does It Make?’ This will haunt her dearly.

      6. Hilary has no plan other than, its my turn.

      7. Hillary Clinton Says, We Must Show Respect and Empathize With America’s Enemies

      8. She comes across as cold, unlikable and a total phony. The below video might just be one of the most embarrassing things I have ever seen.

      9. Hillary is very likely to be out of step with the Democratic primary electorate in 2016—too close to Wall Street, too establishment, a prominent part of an administration that employed drone strikes and used the NSA in all sorts of dastardly ways. For Democrats in 2016.

      10. Don’t count on the black vote. Hillary will not get the volume of black vote that showed up for Obama.
