Skip to comments.UVA's 'Crystal Ball': Jeb Bush Top GOP 2016 Presidential Contender
Posted on 03/20/2014 10:52:13 PM PDT by This Just In
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has not made any formal moves to indicate he will run for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016, but he is already rated as the top contender by one university, even though he does not lead in any preliminary presidential polls.

Yes we do! It’s the only way to defeat any Rino. We need someone with the cojones that will cut government, cut out departments, wipe out Obamacare and tackle the media when he does. The only candidate who fits this bill is Cruz.
Click through to the article and you’ll see that this comes from Larry J. Sabato of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia. Who is Larry J. Sabato?
He wants a Constitutional Convention (his words) to, among other things:
Appoint all former presidents and vice presidents to the new office of “National Senator”
Lengthen the terms of representatives from two years to three years, and set Senate terms to coincide with all presidential elections, so the entire House and Senate would be elected at the same time as the President. (say good by to diffused power)
“Universal national service”
See his book “A More Perfect Constitution”
A warning, he envisions this under Article V.
The Center for Politics, which he founded, conducts a National Youth Leadership Initiative where students engage in a mock Constitutional Convention. http://www.amoreperfectconstitution.com/youth_leadership_initiative.htm
This Snake is Slick.
Great info., Ray76.
Thank you. Will visit links when the sun comes up.
I went looking for any connections with Bush. I didn’t find any, but boy I did find some other stuff.
He’s well connected and has the prestige of the U of Virginia behind him, that’s why I say he’s slick.
I’ve been aware of Sabato for a while. A very conservative friend at work thinks highly of him. I’m not so sure, although I acknowledge he has a better than 50-50 track record in predicting election outcomes in the past. But another Bush? No thanks!
I don't think either Party wants anymore Clinton's or Bush's.
I won't vote for him-period.
"We have RomneyCARE, more Saudi bowing,
and more totally open borders FOR YOU !!!"
If he is, I’m moving to Russia.
The University of Virginia Center for Politics apparently does not get away from the campus very much. This is a surprising finding, given that they probably have access to the Internet.
It won't fly in the real world. One has too much "attractiveness" while the other doesn't have enough hair!!!
good luck with that.
I will not support another bush
Just tired of their compassionate conservative bull crap.
The Bush’s are NOT conservatives, never were never will be.
If he is the parties candidate then I will write in
cruz, Paul, or freaken bugs bunny.
NO......Please no more Bushes, Clintons or Kennedys.
Lets try something fresh this time.
I won’t even vote if that dipshit is the GOP nominee.
Re. Bush v. Hillary
In her words, “what difference does it make?”.
UVA the weakest number 1 seed.
Makes me want to swear.
Larry Sabato, a noted leftist kool-aid drinker, lobbying hard for the GOP to immolate its’ 2016 chances on a sword named “Jeb”.
