Skip to comments.2016? Hillary Clinton 47%, Jeb Bush 33%
Posted on 03/07/2014 5:06:52 AM PST by ClaytonP
The latest round of speculation about the 2016 presidential race stars former Florida Governor Jeb Bush whose Republican nomination could potentially lead to a matchup between two powerhouse political families. Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton holds a double-digit lead over Bush in a hypothetical matchup, but half of voters are less likely to vote for Bush because of his familys history in the White House.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that if the 2016 presidential election were held today, 47% of Likely U.S. Voters would choose Clinton, while 33% would opt for Bush. Fourteen percent (14%) prefer some other candidate, while six percent (6%) are undecided.

Jeb Bush, who the hell is he? It must be his turn, though.
I guess... I should be happy to even see Hillary under 50%
NO MORE BUSH’S
These polls are about as accurate and useful as predicting global warming/global cooling/climate change.
are any of us waiting for a Hillary vs Cruz/Paul, Cruz/West, or maybe a Cruz/Walker ticket Poll?
Hillary vs Palin.
That is the one I would like to see.
Pollsters who do this are just looking for publicity ..they are meaningless ..I mean, it’s smart on the part of the polling organization .but foolish to read anything into it.
So the choice would be between another Clinton or Bush dynasty.
No thank you.
Aww, that leaves Jeb out. Darn !! /s
Palin/Cruz. Though I do think Cruz would accomplish much more if he stayed in the Senate.
Jeb Bush was governor of Florida. A citizen of Florida was being murdered. Bush allowed the murder to proceed.
I will never forget or forgive.
Jeb Bush murdered Terri Schiavo.
I’m sure the MSM will help the sheep select another “Emanuel Goldstein” to play the role of the faux opposition candidate to Big Brother (or Big Sister; what difference does it make).
Saw this on Reuters ... : o /
Just spoke to Tatar leader in #Crimea: ‘Obama is a bad president. We need another Bush in the White House.’ Strong sense of US & UK betrayal

First of all, do they really think there will be a 2016 election? Zero is not about to give up the perks of the throne. Second, the democrat brand will be so tarnished after zero is done, Jeb will win in a Nixonesk landslide.
And this, dear friends, is why we are headed for another civil war.
On the GOP side it’s clear that there is consideration of issues when evaluating a candidate. We conservatives scrutinize on things like amnesty, abortion, traditional family values, gun rights, and so forth. Even the Rino’s in our party do this, albeit coming to very wrong conclusions because they are sold on the idea that they must compromise with the left to have a chance at winning. But regardless we consider issues and will not vote for a candidate that does not support at least most of them. Thus, many of us don’t want Bush for the reasons mentioned in the article and more.
Contrast this with the other side. Sure there are some who are die hard libs who actually think socialism works and can give you the theoretical reasons why. But there are many, many more who simply aren’t bright enough think past their own doorstep. Women who may disagree with the donkeys on every issue except abortion, but blindly go to the polls and vote uterus first, all else be damned. There are many, many voters who wouldn’t know a political issue if it bit them in the derrière, but know they need to vote democrat to get pail after pail of warm government slops. I’m convince that know one short of women with alternative lifestyles actually like Hillary... But to these people it doesn’t matter. The democrats could run Paris Hilton. And they’d pull the lever... And unfortunately these people breed like rabbits.
Jeb is obviously the media’s choice. Their propaganda has started but it won’t lead anywhere.
I’ve never understood Hitlery’s appeal. She has no personality, unlike (hate to say it but it’s true) her husband.
I'm so confident that they'd rather have hillary be president than have a TedCruz/RandPaul ticket.
It will be useful to actually hear from the candidates who will eventually run prior to finding out what voters think about them.
Those “Repatriate to Belize” people could not have a better advertisement.
I weep for my country...
I really doubt that the Dems are going to run Hillary, when it comes right down to it.
ANd while these hypothetical polls are worthless, it was interesting to see that even this was manipulated. There was actually only one point difference between Hillary and Bush in the raw numbers, and only when they added the question about the “Bush family history” did Hillary get higher numbers.
In other words, they’re going to play on Bush Derangement Syndrome again, among both Dems and Republicans. Never mind the horrible history of the Clinton family...I guess that doesn’t count. It was just Bill being Bill, and as for Hillary’s miserable tenure as SOS, well, what’s a girl to do?
She is an extremely unpleasant person who I cannot imagine is truly liked by anyone.
He could sell sandals to Eskimos.
But if too many people move to Belize, it could break off from the rest of the continent and then tip over and sink...
Welcome to the Roman Republic circa 50 BC, when you had to belong to one of a handful of Patrcian families to hope to be elected Consul.
No problem - the MSM will make one up for her.
Otherwise Hillary will run as a woman. Along with the good old reliables - welfare parasites, public employees, union members and of course the perennially offended - that should be enough to get 51% of the vote.
If these are the only candidates running, who cares? For the third straight presidential election, we will have two candidates who agree on almost everything.
Why even bother? Let’s just elect our own candidate and set up a government in opposition.
Any polls of her against Cruz? He’s the man!
stay out da bushes!
Naw, America's got a lot more stamina than you give it credit for. imho it's the rest of the world that's in trouble. Got to remember that after four terms of FDR we ended up with the the worst crime and unemployment ever capped with a war that left Europe in ashes and Asia radioactive. That's when we just came to our senses and prospered.
Two Bush’s was enough. Do we really want/need to be subjected to a third? For once, I agree with Jesse Jackson, “Stay out the Bushes!!!!”
I read that Bernie Sanders is going to run. He’s the most overt extreme leftist of any of our elected officials, and if he runs, I bet Hillary won’t have a chance. The Hillary voters crave hard-core Socialism, and while she might incline to it philosophically, she doesn’t have the personal or political clout to carry it off. Bernie, on the other hand, doesn’t even pretend to be rational, and I think Dem voters are going to flock to him. All he has to do is call for transforming Obamacare into complete government-paid “health care” and he’s in.
He’s an independent, but I think the Dems will get behind him. Hillary is really yesterday, and I suspect they’re all wondering who’s going to be the one to tell her this.
At least one person abroad thinks there is still one person in America who will defend the West.
As somebody who was formerly notable once said....
America, stay OUT da BUSHES!
The GOPe has run two “moderate Republican” losers in a row. Nominating a third, whether Jeb or Christie, should kill the party. That would make the Democrats happy, though.
Thanks for the injection of optimism.
I needed it.
TX just launced a “George P.” Bush on Tuesday with 73 percent of the Republican primary vote in lock-step. Jebbie will soon like the next of the invincible “losers”.
I think Hillary had a smll stroke and won’t be healthy enough to run. Jeb...he’s sending out signals that he will run.
‘Jeb Bush murdered Terri Schiavo.’
No more Bushs! No more Clintons!
All politics aside for the moment - and forgetting Bush, but Clinton looks like HELL.
She is seriously going to have to have a major makeover to make a viable run. Lose weight, fix her hair, and get some sleep. The SOS pace and travel must have killed her. She is going to be how old in 2 and then 6 years time? She won’t be an easy sell.
At least I hope not. :)
I think Hillary is going to run a weekend at Bernie’s campaign and resign shortly after taking office for health reasons.
Her vice presidential pick will be the REAL nominee.
Just a few weeks ago, a FoxNews news report indicated that 50% are still blaming the economic woes on GW Bush.
The Bush name is still toxic.
Who, that voted for Obama, are going to rush to vote for Jeb? Zero, probably.
I still have doubts that Hillary Clinton will run. If she does, however, I don’t see her having any easier run. Some younger upstart may come out of nowhere and challenge her second trip to her coronation.
MSM, including FoxNews, are lauding Christie, still.
But then I'm still trying to process the fact that Nancy Pelosi was Speaker of the House.
None of the above.
I wish the press would sit this one out.
Proof that I will not vote for Jeb!
