National Journal reports, “The likely presidential candidate has some significant detractors in his party’s base.”
I maintain that Jeb Bush will not be the nominee for the Republicans. Despite the dough. (My emphasis added).
When asked if there are Republicans whom they would “definitely not support,” 17 percent of GOP voters or Republican-leaning voters said they wouldn’t back Bush. He comes second only to Donald Trump.
That group is fueled by voters who identify themselves as being “very conservative” or aligned with the tea party, according to the poll. Nearly a quarter of “very conservative” Republican voters said they’d never vote for Bush, along with nearly a third of tea-party voters.
Some of the Republican ill will toward Bush goes beyond just the far right of the party: A Pew poll from earlier this month found Bush leading other GOP contenders in unfavorability among both conservatives and Republicans who identify as being liberal or moderate.
