According to a recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, more Americans are clamoring for change in the upcoming 2016 presidential election than they were in the “Hope and Change” year of 2008. However America, be very careful what you wish for. America cannot withstand another Barack Obama whose change was to fundamentally change America. Look where that has gotten us. Anyone who believes that Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush are a change, are sorely mistaken … they are the same old, same old.

More Americans are clamoring for change in the upcoming 2016 presidential election than they were in the “Hope and Change” year of 2008, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
That desire for change is a potential roadblock for two of the leading frontrunners – Democrat Hillary Clinton (the former first lady, presidential candidate and secretary of state) and Republican Jeb Bush (the former Florida governor whose brother and father served as president).
But it might be a more significant challenge for Bush, given that fewer than half of Republican primary voters believe he would provide new ideas and a vision for the future, versus nearly three-quarters of Democrats who think the same of Clinton.
In the poll, 59 percent of all voters prefer a candidate who will bring greater changes to current policies, even if he or she is less experienced and tested – up from 55 percent who said this in July 2008 during the general-election contest between Barack Obama and John McCain.
Sixty percent of registered voters (including 42 percent of Republicans) say that Bush represents a return to the policies of the past, versus 27 percent (and 49 percent of GOP voters) who say he will provide new ideas and a vision for the future.
By comparison, 51 percent of all voters (but just 24 percent of Democrats) think Clinton represents a return to the policies of the past, and 44 percent (including 73 percent of Democrats) say she’ll provide new ideas for the future.
Personally, I am not looking for change. I am looking for a competent leader who understands the US Constitution exists and someone with Conservative principals and knows how to lead.
