In order that I may understand these figures,could someone kindly advise as to how many of the listed names have actually nominated to run for the office of President. Mick,do you have a breakdown of voters polled?.Cheers from Aussie
While Trump may be on top this week, registered Republican voters gave him a very weak chance of holding on to that spot in the long run.The vast majority of respondents — 29 percent — said they believed Jeb Bush would ultimately claim the GOP presidential nomination. Only 7 percent said the same about Trump.Unlike other polling companies, YouGov relies on a preselected pool of registered voters from which it pulls respondents at random.Though this methodology has been called into question by some, the results of this poll are in line with other surveys, including one from the left-leaning Public Policy Polling, which gave Trump a comfortable lead in North Carolina.

Unfortunately King all of them have announced on the republican side. FOX is screwed though they only are to allow the top ten into the initial debate but with Fiorina and Perry tied for tenth I guess they have to have 11 if it were to happen today.
Also, Fox announced that only those candidates who have completed financial statements will be allowed to debate. So, as of today, that would exclude Jeb Bush, the consensus favorite!
My thanks for the help. Yes I too have a gut feeling that the Bush dynasty is on the rise yet again. My problem is in believing Jeb is carrying too much baggage to be credible. Here in Aussie we remember Jeb as the bloke who changed the rules to oil the pathway for GW. I know at the time there was a lot of noise in your country concerning vote rigging and fraud over registration on the Rolls. Any one have a comment as to the feelings on the street about the past and Jebs chances?.Cheers from Aussie
King the best thing Jeb has going for him are these things he is a resident and past Governor of the State of Florida. Florida has been a determining factor in the last three presidential elections. He will be impossible to beat there that is in his favor. Second the republican party struggles with getting the Hispanic vote. Jeb's wife Columba is from Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico, that is definitely a positive for him to get more Hispanic support. He is also for a pathway to citizenship for the Hispanic population. He would be the toughest republican to beat IMHO because of these factors. They need the Hispanic vote to win. There just ain't enough old white guys left.
