Skip to comments.2016 poll: Jeb Bush withers, Rand Paul soars
Posted on 04/28/2014 12:58:17 PM PDT by PaulCruz2016
A new poll shows that only 15 percent of Americans want former Florida Governor Jeb Bush to run for president.
The latest YouGov/Economist poll shows that 47 percent indicated that they did not want Bush to run. Thirty-eight percent indicated that they were not sure.
The poll also shows that both Bush and former Governor Chris Christie get a 49 percent favorability rating among those that identified themselves as Republicans.
Christie, however, is disliked by 37 percent of Republicans, which is a higher unfavorable rating than Jeb Bush who got 25 percent.
Forty-two percent of respondents who identified themselves as conservatives gave favorable ratings to Christie while 44 percent rated him unfavorably.
For Bush, 38 percent of conservatives rated him unfavorably compared to 33 who thought otherwise.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), however, enjoys much higher numbers than either Bush or Christie.
Sixty-three percent of Republicans have a favorable opinion of Paul, while only 15 percent rate him unfavorably. Sixty-one percent of conservatives polled rated Paul favorably.

Rand Paul Soros is misspelled in the title.
So is anyone going to take seriously any poll that does not include Ted Cruz?
This one apparently did not.
How bout we concentrate on this Nov's election first?
Rand Paul? Jeb Bush? Any Republicans in that poll?
LOL! Good catch. Also, his first name of Benedict has been misspelled.
Yes. Rand Paul is a serious libertarian. Put him on the big stage, and he will quickly remind the nation why 1-2% is the libertarian norm, and 7-8% is the ceiling.
when are they going to take a poll if Jeb runs as a Democrat?They should take polls amongst all three of them(Bush/Christie/Clinton),,,I am pretty sure Christie would over take Hillary.
HAHA, the 15% is here.
Rand is playing up the ‘I can get them to vote for me’ theme quite heavily to get these sorts of poll results.
I was thinking the SAME thing!
Rand Paul will win.
Your links are blog posts written by muslims (AllahPundit??) and big government communists.
You are not fooling anyone.
I agree with your observation.
Ted Cruz is running to be Rand Paul’s VP. There’s a separate poll for that.
I would much prefer Scott Walker, he has actually turned a disaster of
a state around!!! STOOD STRONG against HORRIBLE odds did NOT
back down and SUCCEEDED!!!!
Are you denying that Rand said what he said?!
Really? Are you actually saying Democrats would vote for Christie or any Bush over Hillary Clinton?
Hey 'gunner. Have you updated your RonPaul circus collage with one for RonJr yet?
Because this thread needs a good laugh!
I like him a lot, but he better start fighting or he will be in trouble. His father never backed down. He’s been playing too many establishment games.
Is DemocRat Ru Paul running in the DNC primary?
Aside from style, the only difference between Ted Cruz and Rand Paul is on foreign policy. Ted Cruz has not yet opened his eyes to the perils of nation building.
But their current strategies are very different. Paul is communicating to a larger audience: the entire country. His goal is to win the general election.
Cruz, on the other hand, is focused on throwing red meat to the base, again and again. This keeps the base happy but will not carry him very far in the polls. His purpose is to fill in the VP spot. He all but endorsed Rand Paul already. I can post the youtube videos if you want.
No. I have not.
I probably should though.. a geek training to be a spaz is bound to be good graphics.
Actually, I would love to see more polls taken in vital purple states like Ohio/Florida/Penn. Cruz VS Hillary and Paul VS Hillary. Maybe thats what Hillary is waiting for? then decide?
The elephant in the living room is foreign policy. Rand Paul’s FP views are the mainstream now, especially with younger voters.
Foreign policy is the real issue that is driving so many college educated, white Americans away from the GOP, not gay marriage or gun control or most ridiculously, opposition to amnesty.
But Paul is showing signs of playing footsie with the NWO.
Not good. AT LEAST RON PAUL NEVER NEGOTIATED WITH THE NWO AND WENT AFTER THEM.
Not me. At this point our best hope is some kind of uprising. Rand Paul as president will make that less likely, but our liberty will continue to die.
TPTB wanted him as candidate and they got him.
Rand Paul’s endorsement of Mitch McConnell in this year’s Senate Race and his anti-Israel statements have done it for me. I would not vote for him if he was the only one on the ballot.
No more Senators, Clintons, Bushes, or Obamas. We need two solid governors with strong credentials and proven successes. They’ll not be lily-white perfect conservatives (those only exist on FR), but they’ll whip any Dem and put the country back on course. After 16 years, 8 for the Pres. and a follow up 8 for the VP as Pres, along with control of the Congress things should be looking quite rosy.
I am in TOTAL AGREEMENT with you on this one!!!!
