Jeb Bush surges in the polls
No, I’m not making this up. Most recent 5 days of the Reuters tracking poll shows that Bush’s support has jumped to 10.7%, pulling ahead of Rubio and now tied with Ted Cruz.
This is a very interesting development, because political betting markets over the last month have assigned Rubio as the guy most likely to win the Republican nomination, but now he has fallen behind Bush.
This may mean that Rubio merely had a temporary surge, which is what Cruz is now experiencing (and possibly already fading away) and what Fiorina had a while back.
I was always mystified by Rubio’s sudden surge. If you wanted to vote for an establishment pro-amnesty guy from Florida, why not just vote for Bush?
