Stay out of the Bushes
(Washington Examiner) - Sixty-two percent of people say Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush represents the past, according to a new CNN/ORC poll. Only 34 percent believe he represents the future.
It's a slight improvement for Bush, as 64 percent of those polled in February said he represented the past.
Still, the poll is bad news for Bush, as none of the other major candidates mentioned polled above 50 percent when the question was if they represent the past. "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough said Wednesday morning that results show Bush will have a tough time escaping his family name and the legacy of his brother, former president George W. Bush.
Fifty-six percent of those asked said the fact that Bush was the brother and son of former presidents made it less likely they would vote for him.
Among the 2016 crop of presidential candidates, Republican candidate Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., earned the highest percent of people (58 percent) who see him as representing the future.
A slight majority (51 percent) of people believe Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton represents the future, while 45 percent believe she represents the past.
The poll surveyed 1,025 adults via telephone during the period May 29-31 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
