Skip to comments.Jeb Bush burns through campaign cash, slides in polls
Posted on 12/25/2015 4:22:03 PM PST by jimbo123
After starting 2015 as the presumptive front-runner with a huge bankroll, Jeb Bush has to be ending the year wondering what went wrong with his presidential campaign, what happened to his Republican Party and where all his money went.
Mr. Bush and his super PAC burned through more than half of the $133 million they raised in the first three quarters this year. The return on that investment has been a drop in polls from about 15 percent when he entered the race in June to about 4 percent in recent surveys.
"He has not been a great candidate and the campaign never seemed to hit its strides despite all the money he had," said Aubrey Jewett, a political science professor at the University of Jacksonville.
He had to slash his campaign payroll nearly in half and reorganize into a leaner operation in October when it became clear that the spending was out of control and donations were drying up while his run had stagnated in the middle of a crowded Republican field.

“slides in the poll”
Can you be below zero?
Somewhere a funeral home
is missing its bookkeeper.
Gee, maybe there is more to all this than just money.
Jebbie Bush. Whatever happened to him?
Yeb! The Joyful Tortoise was supposed to be the consensus candidate everyone settled on to be The Designated Loser.
The citizens rejected abandoning the rule of law and surrendering their country.
Tough tippy-toes, Yeb!
âJeb Bush never entered this race with a lot of support,â he said. âHe got a little bit of support mainly because he was touted as the front-runner. But as soon as he got on the stage, the voters looked at him, particularly in places like Iowa and New Hampshire, and said, âYou know what? Thankâs for your service to the country. Your brother and father had their time in the Oval Office, and now itâs time for somebody new.â***********************************
I wonder if him and Kasich are brothers from another Mother, the way those two act...
I’ve never seen a real MAN act this way, and people are suppose to elect this cry baby titty mouth to the Oval Office???
Thank Goodness we have a real MAN like Trump...and I don’t care if he swears, or is loud and I don’t care about his ‘tone’ and I don’t care how he sounds, we are over the P.C.B.S. so those that are offended, ‘deal with it’!
I suppose he could run for Rubio’s Senate seat, other than that, I can’t see him running for anything else.
Jeb is about to slide off the debate stage.
That’s what drove his FoxNews primetime ad buy / Trump slam.
best value queen size mattress
He’s shooting for 1 or 2 points to keep him on the planks.
All the ad did though was piss off Trump supporters even more.
The tough lessons of racial pandering
when you pande tto your opposition’s consitutencies to the detriment of your own people, then the payback is hell
Burn, baby, burn
Stagnated in a crowded republican field? He is the one crowding the field! CNN had to drop the acceptance rate ag 3% so he could still come.
No one but Jeb would be allowed on stage at 3%. I do not seem to see them making the same allowance for Allan Keyes
Say it Jeb! Say it!
(extra points if the Mexican dwarf lady is sobbing at your side.)
he does care. a lot. it is visible in his face and in his comments that he Despises trump for making him the fool and besting him.
he is a spoiled brat.
It would be interesting to find out who is the ad agency of record doing all the ad buys for his PAC and his campaign and which member of the family owns it or is the account exec generating the billing.............
Why in the heck is he still in? The family must be able to read the writing. It just makes no sense.
Common Core math, again...
