Where Did Jeb Bush Lose Support? Everywhere WSJ/NBC Poll

Source: Wall Street Journal

Mr. Bush lost support across the board: among men and women, voters under and over 50 years of age, talk-radio listeners, and values and tea-party voters alike. Though his support flagged among likely voters who identified as very conservative and total conservatives, Mr. Bush lost the most ground – a 15-point decline — among self-described moderate and liberals, earning 8% from those voters in September compared with 23% in July.

Voters also have less positive sentiment about the former Florida governor. The change was greatest among likely Republican primary voters, whose positive feelings decreased to 39% from 50%. Meanwhile, negative feelings toward Mr. Bush increased by four

Similar report in the Washington Post:

By now, you surely know that Donald Trump is the least-liked Republican candidate for president. How could he not be, after months and months of coverage of how disliked he is? A new Fox News survey reveals that, thanks to opposition from Democrats, Trump is indeed viewed less favorably than any other candidate.

But if you look only at Republican respondents, that changes: Republicans view Jeb Bush even worse.

Among all voters, Trump is at negative-25 -- that is, he is viewed 25 points more unfavorably than favorably. Bush is at -21. Among Republicans? Bush gets lower marks than anyone, at plus-1. Even Chris Christie is at +4. The difference is inside the margin of error, but this is clearly not where Bush would like to be.



"No Republican 2016 candidate is less liked by his or her party than Jeb Bush"

He was elected Gov before the teabaggers took control. And the bible-thumpers probably don't remember his Terri Schaivo pandering.

Who knows how these crazies will vote. If he's the last man standing, they will vote for him over any Democrat.

I have been rooting for Bush to get the nomination because we can beat him easily - if it can't be Trump, Fiornia or Carson, any of which would be even easier.

My long-standing Rubio fears are not being quelled at all. I think he's going to take it, and that the general is going to be a helluva nail-biting fight.

As far as beating him easily? They are old hands at stealing elections.

We will have to GOTV, and be vigilant.

Rubio is no more or no less threatening than any of the other kooks. He's a knuckle-dragging dipshit who opposes same sex marriages and thinks abortion should be illegal even in cases of rape and incest. Those aren't exactly winnable positions in a national election.

I'm not sure the base will embrace him due to his immigration stance. But the ticket I dread is Rubio/Kasich or vice-versa. That would put both Florida and Ohio into play.

He's seen as compromised because of the wife. Therefore, he's not to be trusted with keeping "those" people out.

It is heavily weighted with Southern states, and they will go for Bush.
