Finally, another guy with a surname “Bush” entered the race for White House and thrown his hat in the ring. After the disaster that his brother inflicted upon US economy and its image in the global arena, Jeb Bush still thinks that given his governance track record and viability as an effective candidate, the American people are ready to send another “Bush” to the Capitol Hill. Here are the 5 reasons why he is deluding himself and won’t ever make it to the White house
Competition within Republican Party
Before he can officially begin his Presidential campaign and talk directly to the American people, he has to first face the primaries wherein he has to convince the conservative base that he is the best choice to be the party’s candidate. But other candidates like Senator Rubio, Senator Ted Cruz, Governor Scott Walker, Mike Huckabee and most importantly libertarian Senator Rand Paul poses a tough contest to him.
Rising Popularity of Hillary Clinton
Even if Jeb Bush comes on top in the Republican primary race which is a far- fetched He would then have to fight against a fierce democratic opponent in the form of Hilary Clinton who enjoys tremendous popularity and seem to be marching towards the Whitehouse. Her juggernaut will be difficult for him to overpower.
Poor Governance Track Record
He has been the governor of Florida for two terms now, but the state continues to rank very low on various parameters like health, education, infrastructure etc as compared to other states. The crime has increased, laws are archaic, minorities feel threatened etc.
American People will never trust “Bush” again
The American people have voted his father and his brother to power in the past and they can never forget the hardships they have had to endure during their tenure. President George Bush is considered to be one of the worst president in US history, he is someone who brought the economy to the brink of collapse and invaded Iraq on false pretences. The surname “Bush” is jinxed now and people are actually scared to send another “Bush” to the White house now.
He is not WallStreet Poster Boy
Though his policy positions are aligned with party positions except on few issues like immigration, he does’nt enjoy support from Wallstreet as much as Hilary Clinton.
