Abstract

Only six months ago former Florida Governor Jeb Bush was considered by most pundits and commentators to be the front-runner for the Republican Party’s 2016 presidential nomination. Now, the brother and son of two former presidents is confronted by a downward polling spiral in the face of rivals such as Donald Trump and Marco Rubio. Christian Abueg argues that Bush’s electoral woes stem from a base which has shrunk in the last decade as the GOP has moved to the right, and that over the past 50 years, no politician with such a large gap between campaigns has taken the White House.
