The Jeb Bush Campaign is in Free Fall

Gallop released a new poll on the Republican candidates' favorability and name recognition, and here is a chart from the Gallop report:


Compare today's net favorability numbers from Gallop with net favorability from yesterday's Monmouth poll of Republicans:

Carson (67% favorable – 6% unfavorable = 61% net favorability)
Trump (59% favorable – 29% unfavorable = 30% net favorability)
Fiorina (43% favorable – 13% unfavorable = 30% net favorability)
Walker (42% favorable – 15% unfavorable = 27% net favorability)
Kasich (23% favorable – 18% unfavorable = 5% net favorability)
Bush (41% favorable – 39% unfavorable = 2% net favorability)

Contrast these net favorability numbers with Republicans against Monmouth's most recent net favorability polling of Democrats:

Clinton (71% favorable – 17% unfavorable = 54% net favorability)
Biden (67% favorable – 14% unfavorable = 53% net favorability)
Sanders (42% favorable – 12% unfavorable = 30% net favorability)
O’Malley (13% favorable – 8% unfavorable = 5% net favorability)

CONCLUSION: Bush is in the midst of a complete free fall.

3. For all the talk that Bernie is too old, Jeb comes across as more of a Gramps.

He looks dumpy & dull & when he talks, he lacks the energy that Bernie has.

5. Because of these numbers? Polls with that many candidates are a POS.

Wait until people realize that Trump favors immigration (and low wages that come with it) in reality and is purely pandering to them. I am really wondering why Bush is not attacking him on this basis.

On many of these points, Bush and Trump's policies are the same, but Trump is using people's worst instincts and racial slurs to attack Bush and hide his true views.

Now, I do not really care who wins the primary (nobody running is interesting), but it is amazing how people are tricked by Trump just as they have been tricked by Tea Party leaders. Some people will never learn.

6. Polls of a person's favorability versus unfavorability have no bearing on the number of candidates.

For example, Monmouth's Republican polling didn't bother to include Christie, Paul, Perry, Jindal, etc., and its Democratic poll included the favorability versus unfavorability numbers for Biden, who is not a candidate.

The fact that Bush has a net favorability of only 2% among Republicans is bad news for his campaign. It would be bad news if there were 25 candidates running and it would be bad news if there were just 4 candidates running.

7. I think we can assume al those polls saying W is more liked now are false

and people still have a lot of anger toward the Bush family.

9. I believe the polls on W. I don't think people trust him to govern, but if he's only playing golf

and giving the occasional speech, I think there are people who are OK with that and don't dislike him in that role.

If he tried to take on some job with governing authority, I think more people would quickly begin to hate him again.

12. Jeb may not want the job much but some folks have a $100,000,000 worth of interest in him getting

the job.

That is worrisome.
