Outlier polls are outlier polls and should be viewed with a grain of salt. Plus, likely voters are not necessarily likely primary attendees. Still, I’m sure this is at some level good news for McCain! :slight_smile:

Jeb rising sort of seems out of the blue. Will have to see if this is confirmed by other polls.

Yea, we should give this one some weight - not.

“The only other candidate with a double-digit showing was former Ohio Gov. John Kasich ®”. Last I heard, John is still Governor of Ohio until 2018. :confused:

More significantly, we’ll have to see how he does the day after the primary.

I don’t believe this poll for an instant. Nope, not buying it.

Did you catch this typo?

a 17-point lead over former Bush…

It’s as though he’s not anyone any more!

“No other New Hampshire polls have shown Bush polling in second place.”

The definition of outlier.

I’m still sticking with my prediction that Jeb! will be the Republican nominee.

Not the least of his solecisms:

  • a double-digit lead in Granite State
  • a 17-point lead over former Bush
  • John Kasich ® Although

I wonder what he thinks “former” means.

If so, great news for Trump and terrible news for Rubio. Bush isn’t going to beat Trump. But a second place in NH will keep him in the game with his $100 million pot to crap on Rubio.

What in the name of heaven would cause Jeb! to rise anywhere…his efforts have been a hot mess since day one…he is an embarrassment.

Which is exactly why I think he’ll win the nomination.

You can almost hear Poppy Bush telling Jr. that there is nothing to be ashamed of if the only slot you’re chosen for might be as a VP on the ticket…if you’re lucky, that is. Hey, that’s how GHWB got his foot in the door to the Oval.

If Jeb! had any sense, which he doesn’t, he’d be shifting his strategery, with time better spent sucking up to the nearest establishment frontrunner, which won’t be him. Maybe then someone will take him seriously as VP material. Its a long-shot, but its probably the best he can hope for at this point. Not sure though that anyone running would have him as their VP. Still, its a lot more realistic than him ever becoming President the old fashioned way.

It was probably his mom’s endorsement that did it.

This polls is an outlier. If other polls start showing the same thing, I’ll believe it.
