Poll may show big problems for a Jeb Bush presidential campaign.

Courtesy of Game Changer PAC: 

In a poll by Game Changer PAC, surveying 2,226 likely Republican voters, 59.66% of respondents said that if Jeb Bush ends up as the 2016 Republican Presidential Nominee… they won’t vote at all in the 2016 General Election. 

The poll shows that Republican voters are tired of holding their noses and will no longer vote in lock-step with the party. 

Bush is seen as a fundraising powerhouse and is on track to raise over 100 million dollars by the end of May. This fact is causing the establishment wing of the Republican party to salivate more than Pavlov’s Dogs in a fire drill. The sad fact is that throughout recent history BOTH major parties have decided which perspective nominees will be endorsed by the full weight of their parties primarily on fundraising successes. 

The Republican party has been dealing with push-back from this model for the last few years with the rise of the Tea Party- and has seen some positive results and an energized base- though this is not the party’s doing or desire.

It should be noted that this Game Changer PAC is proudly swinging their teabags to and fro, and therefore represent the most Right Wing of the Right Wing.

In fact at the top of their poll is Rand Paul, followed by Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Scott Walker.

Jeb Bush comes in around eleven with .85%. And that is immediately following Sarah Palin with 1.16% and she obviously has no intention of running.

However it should also be noted that this fringe is rapidly absorbing the base of the Republican party like some grade B horror movie gone amok.

And even taking this poll with a giant grain of salt it is still indicative of the fact that Jeb Bush is the living personification with everything the Teabaggers believe is wrong with Washington, and it is very unlikely that he ever will earn their support.

      Passing it on, yeah!?i cannot wait for our first female president and I cannot wait for it to be Hillary!!!

    That is wonderful news indeed. So, if Jeb gets the nod, the teabaggers won't show up to vote and Hillary wins. And if a Ted Cruz, Rand Paul or Marco Rubio get the nod, a whole bunch of independents who would have voted for Jeb will vote for Hillary and Hillary wins.

    I sure hope Hillary has coat tails that bring the Dems back to power in the House and the Senate. Either way, Hillary will be an excellent President.

    Don't overestimate the stupidity of the Republican voter. They'll vote for any moron with and R after their name. That's why they keep getting stuck with crap candidates like Palin.

      Just as Karl Rove enabled the past two republican victories (aside from all the cheating and Supreme Court-fixing, of course) and got out the GOP vote on the concept that voting was a choice between 'good (us/GOP) and evil (them/vile democrats)', so too Jeb is returning to the same old mantra. Jeb: "the choice is clear – it's either Godless democrats, or ME (IOW, a theocracy)!" THAT is the only way he will get out the evangelical vote, and he knows it – and he is acting on that understanding and using that dog whistle. It must necessarily be this way because, other than wars, the GOP has nothing else to offer. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Nothing. "Good versus EVIL", "God versus Satan", "all your favorite religious and spiritual values versus godless humanism", fear versus hope, blah, blah, blah. I can hear it already, and Jeb already said so in so many words at Liberty University just this week. "Vote for me, or those evil democrats will come and take away the Virgin Mary, your freedom to deny birth control pills to other people, your manger scene and prayer beads, and Jesus!!" Jeb, a convert to Catholicism and member of the Club of Rome, is a stealth theocrat who is far more stealthy and far more theocratic-minded than his brother George. What he did in the Terri Schiavo incident is merely the smallest beginning, the tiniest snippet of what he would do if placed in the seat of national power. Think: Antonin Scalia ruling from the White House.

    I would love to see another Clinton beat another Bush.

      Unless everybody would be delighted to live as serfs/slaves in a neo-roman empire? Pax Americana. Theocracy binding the people into obedience. Eternal war and subjugation of the populace. Even more grotesque inequality of income.

      Just remember : in dynastic wars, families with the most members win.

    Jebbie gave the usual pandering commencement address at Liberty (hah!) University's graduation ceremonies today. Of course, the local news stations were all over it.

    Such a tool....

      I've always wondered how much these guys have to pay Liberty to let them speak at their graduations?

    2. Anonymous7:45 PM

      Yes, he said that Obama is intolerant of other people's religion because he (Obama) thinks every woman in America should have the freedom to select her own method of birth control. Jeb, the man who would like to break into your medicine cabinet, thinks Obama is the guy who is destroying freedom in America. Where is Lewis Carroll when we need him?

    A couple of years with the Regressive Party in control of the House and Senate should have anyone capable of a reasonable thought process ready to vote for the Democrats...

    In all seriousness the Regressives are their own worst enemy...

    Have at it!
    Show us what you've got! LOL

    The 2014 elections we not a mandate in any way shape or form...

    The reality was about 17% gaining control by default...

    A Presidential Election is a whole different story...

    The Regressive Party ceased being a viable party in 2012...

    Jeb might pick himself a Sarah Palin wannabe for Veep, that would rope in the Tea Party nutjobs.

    1. Anonymous5:06 PM

      Do you think that if Jeb asked really nicely that Sarah would give the VP job another try? That would be the best!!

    2. Anonymous7:38 PM

      He may well pick the male version of Palin, Ted Cruz, who would demagogue things to such a high level that he just might be able to 'get out the base'.

    You're never going to be president, Jeb,
    but fun to watch you try!

    Stupid runs deep in the Shrub family.

  10. Anonymous11:03 PM

    His daughter was in trouble due to drug use and in and out of rehab for years. His wife lied to customs about the value of purchases in Europe and was caught and arrested. Does America need that as their first family?

  11. And at the peepond they'll be yukkin it up cuz they hate hate hate the jebster or whatever other juvenile name they have for him.
    And as is their delusional ways either question the validity-i wasn't contacted by this poll were you?- or convenientely not discuss $arah's dismal numbers.
    They are such an outstandingly smart group of people over there!

    1. Anonymous6:13 AM

      They'll hate him until Sarah Palin tells them otherwise.

    "which perspective nominees will be endorsed. . ."

    Please check your dictionary for the difference in meaning between "perspective" and "prospective"


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
