2016 Poll: Hillary Clinton Clobbers Jeb Bush
Breitbart's Big Government ^ | February 3, 2014 | Tony Lee

Posted on 02/04/2014 3:16:36 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Though former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) is often hailed by the Republican establishment as the best candidate to take on Hillary Clinton in a potential 2016 general election contest for president, Clinton clobbers Bush by 20 percentage points in a hypothetical matchup.

According to a CNN/ORC poll released Monday, Clinton leads Bush 57% to 37%. Bush does worse against Clinton than do Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R), and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)...

All these polls are worthless right now. The dimwitted Dems have settled on Hillary, and Republicans don’t have a clue who they want, or who will be left standing. A Walker/Cruz ticket might work.

“Recipe for disaster .”

Conservative men; do not trust your wives or girl friends when they are amening your conservative rants. The ladies, who may be otherwise conservative on most issues, want a woman POTUS really bad. And thereby may talk the talk with you but will not walk the walk with you. I’m telling ya, they’re gonna pull the handle for Hillary. Thereby, I suggest this; take them camping on Election Day. Then, you sneak back to your polling place without your beloved on the pretense of making a beer run or something and vote. If you don’t like this, think of something else. Otherwise, you’ll be sorrrrrry :)

Polls before Labor Day 2016 are MEANINGLESS. Ask President Dukakis, or read the histories of Jimmy Carter’s second term.

This is ESPECIALLY true for conservative candidates. Most voters are under water in a sea of progressivist nonsense. They only know what they are supposed to think by listening to Leonardo deCaprio or Kanye West.

The purpose of an election campaign is to change people’s minds from what they are SUPPOSED to think, to get them to vote for what they REALLY DO think.

Polls don’t account for this, and, as such, are meaningless. I wish people would stop posting articles like this.

At this point in time, the nomination and the presidentcy is Hillary's for the asking. That said, I still do not think she will run.
Right now, I think the next President of the United States will be Joe Biden for a couple of reasons.
Number one, there is no way the Republican Party can out Santa Claus the Democrats. Think 47% on some kind of Federal aid. Number two, the Republican party will be unable to unite behind a candidate. Would Johm Boehner vote for Sarah Palin? Would YOU vote for Chris Christie?

Republicans know who they want. That’s Jeb Bush who is next in line. Conservatives have not sorted their preference out yet, which is too bad.None have been running and putting out markers for two election cycles already. Reagan won by following the golden road to Nomination. He supported all the right people and fund raised for two cycles. He did not jump in in the last 14 months and think he was going to win it. He “failed” in 1976 but just used that to build his base for 1980.

Jeb Bush has excellent odds for winning what he wants to win, the Nomination. As with previous Republican Nominees, I doubt he actually wants to be President, though. GW seems to be the exception to that apparent rule. I don’t think he actually cared whether he won or not. He didn’t actively throw the election.

A Walker/Pence ticket might make things somewhat interesting for a while, anyway, until the DNC-owned “media” sink one or both of them with a contrived scandal.

On ABC This week Sunday Anna Navaro told the Dem Donna Brazile that she hopes that Bush doesn't run because he would be so hard to beat.

'This Week': Powerhouse Roundtable(2/2/14)

Also Bill Kristol tells her :"I am not an GOP establishment type, I am a Tea party Republican'

“At this point in time, the nomination and the presidentcy is Hillary’s for the asking. That said, I still do not think she will run.”

And that is the only possibility that Hillary isn’t inaugurated in January 2017. If she’s on the field, she’ll win big. And the most frustrating part is going to be the prominent, erstwhile conservative women who pull the lever for her in 2016 because.. gosh ... they want to be part of “history.”

Nooo, I do NOT know your wife, certainly not in the biblical sense! Just, making a funny ha ha, don’t shoot! :)

Anyway, the question at hand is; do you REALLY know your wife - in the political sense that is? After all, voting is still by secret ballot, more or less. Personally, I think the gals are gonna lie about this. Just saying... :)

Pundits on the left keep pounding the drum that Jeb is the GOP’s best hope; is head and shoulders above the rest of the field.

That means they desperately want him to be the GOP’s candidate.

It will be interesting to see if he gets it. I’ve never the end of a major political party before.

Running any Bush against Clinton would nix our greatest asset when running against Hillary.

The burnout of people looking for something new.

Instead it would instead make it a referendum on who was the better president Bill Clinton or George W Bush, and Bush will lose that contest every time.

This sort of reminds me of the lead up to 2012 when I said Romney was the worst possible potential candidate because him being the candidate would completely neutralize our greatest asset, Obamacare.

Because too many Republican elites are falling for the aristocratic tendencies the Democrats already have. Who is the best person to take over a Senate seat? The child or another relative, if not the aide, of the current person. Look at Liz Cheney’s aborted run for her father’s prior seat. Who should run for President? Why, the former wife of a President! And their daughter in a decade or two, the same way a Kennedy daughter was promoted for office. If Kennedy’s son hadn’t died in that plane crash, he’d be anointed the next generation of Camelot right now.

And Democrats might be pushing a Bush as a candidate so they can have an easy person to win.

Ok, if you say so. However, as my wife and three grown daughters enjoy reminding me, women are the smart ones of the species. Could it be that your spouse of thirty years is just out smarting you? You know, some of that smoke and mirrors stuff? Hey, it happens, lol :)

No need to run a poll pitting Clinton against Sarah Palin as they know that Sarah would crush Hillary by 30 points.

I know it happens with some due to pop culture and through the indoctrination of public education but... my wife runs her own business and she is a Conservative and she knows the truth. She is a Christian and will not have to face GOD and be condemned for the support of abortion and other liberal democrat agendas. That is why I know how she thinks and know how she votes. We are of like minds.

Another hyperbole "trial balloon."

By the time Obozo gets done I doubt ANYONE with any sense will be interested in ANOTHER DEMOCRAT.

As for Jeb Bush... He'd have to CHANGE his last name for the American public to want to elect him.
