I take back some of what I said yesterday about America being stupid. And the Republicans think Jebbie is a slam dunk.
There’s been a lot of talk in the last few weeks pushing Jeb Bush as a candidate in 2012 but there’s just one problem: a plurality of Americans say they would definitely not vote for another Bush for President in the future.
44% of voters in the country say there’s no way they’d support another Bush Presidency. Only 14% say they’d definitely favor one, and 39% say they’d consider it. The Republican base is decently open to the idea of another Bush- only 10% distinctly rule out the possibility. But a majority of Democrats at 73% and most notably a majority of independents at 50% shut the door to another President Bush. Perhaps those feelings will change in the coming years but it’s unlikely they’d shift enough by next November to allow Jeb to win an election that soon.
