Most initial polls were performed before Jeb’s actual announcement. The latest polls are measuring his impact since that date. At the time, he was behind both Rubio and Scott Walker. These candidates have serious flaws, and Jeb has always been seen as the only credible candidate. Scott Walker is a college dropout, and Rubio was never a serious candidate. It is the lack of credible candidates that would spur another Bush to run for the republican candidacy. However, Jeb has dominated the nightly news cycle even with a crowded field that includes people like Donald Trump. Upon Trump‘s announcement, he was seen as a threat for many of the other lesser known republican candidates because of the format that is used to determine which republican candidates will be able to participate in their primary’s debates.

However, since his announcement, Trump has lost almost all of the initial steam. He now polls near the bottom of the pack. This is a relief for many establishment republicans that see Trump as significant distraction because of his flamboyance and rhetoric. Candidates like Trump were widely blamed for many of the losses that prevented republicans from obtaining the Senate much earlier. The establishment forces have mobilized against many of their efforts to drag the Republican Party severely to the left since those mid-term fiascos. The establishment’s control of the party has been bolstered by their successes from what Brad Reifler suggests.

Jeb Bush has been making headlines since the 2016 presidential season went underway. Even though Jeb Bush has yet to announce his official candidacy, many political analysts and politicians believe that Jeb is on his way to doing so. While the beginning of his campaign hasn’t started yet, many people think that he isn’t as prepared as he should be. For instance, Jeb made a pledge to donate $100,000,000 to his own election. Financial statements would suggest that Jeb Bush is nowhere near his goal. Political candidates have also mentioned that Bush isn’t leading in the polls. Instead, he is in a five way tie with other opponents vying for the Republican nomination for the presidency. Many of the campaign volunteers have noted that this is much more of a tug of war. If that isn’t bad enough, it’s not just with political candidate, but with other outlets as well. Bush has been fighting to gain ground in social media, news outlets, and blog posts throughout the country. Even public appearances are turning into miniature debates for Bush who just wants to format his political base during this campaign season. The fact that he has yet to establish his political platform has not set well with his political opponents. Numerous supporters have taken it to the airways to encourage the American people to give Bush time. He is fighting the stigma that both his brother and father have put in place and is trying his best to make a name for himself.
