Jeb Bush trails Most of Republican Field in Iowa, According to Poll

jeb bushFormer Florida Gov. Jeb Bush may be the most popular Republican presidential hopeful nationwide, but he trails his rivals badly in the critical state of Iowa, according to a new poll released Wednesday.

Only 5% of likely Iowa GOP caucus-goers told Quinnipiac University pollsters that they planned to vote for Bush, placing him No. 7 in the field of declared or potential 2016 candidates.

Even worse for Bush: He may not have as much room to grow over the next year as other candidates do. One-quarter of Republicans said they definitely could not support Bush, the lowest ceiling of support of any candidate in the Hawkeye State, and 45% said Bush was “not conservative enough.” Read more on CNN.

  1. Bush doesn’t need to win Iowa. Whoever wins Iowa rarely gets nominated anyway. New Hampshire is the early state that really matters for Jeb, and he will almost definitely win it.

  2. To Who Cares,

    6 out of 9 Republican winners in the Iowa Caucuses won the parties nomination. It is 7 out of 10 for Democrats. “Facts are stubborn things” John Adams.

  3. When you take incumbents out of the equation, the numbers are actually 4 out of 8 for democrats nd only 2 out of 6 for Republicans. Lst time i checked, Bush is not an incumbent president. Facts are stubborn, but you seem to be pretty good at manipulating them.
