    Think about it.


    Jeb Bush will have:

    -The white male vote
    -The "Hispanic Mixed Race Kids + Wife Cred" which means he will have high Hispanic vote especially among Hispanic men wanting to "White it up"
    -Married white women


    Hillary on the other hand will have:

    -Mediocre to low black male turnout
    -Mediocre to low Hispanic male turnout
    -Mediocre married white women turnout
    -Low white male turnout
    -High single female turnout


    In my mind, that's a Jeb Bush win. Jeb Bush's voter blocs will turnout in full force whereas Hillary will basically only have one column of energized support from Single women. I don't see that beating several strong GOP voting blocs.

    Unless the white gay faction can somehow infuse enough cash, influence and fanaticism into Hillary's campaign, she's doomed.

    No, he won't.

    The USA has seen all that it wants to see of the Bush family, this isn't North Korea- we don't do dynasties here.

    That's nice.

    So tell me then, how does Jeb Bush's strong white male, strong Hispanic, and strong married voting blocs lose to Hillary's single voting bloc of single women?

    Wait until 2016 and you'll see. His biggest handicap is his name.

    The USA has seen all that it wants to see of the Bush clan.

    I don't think that's true. It's all about percieved amounts of negative baggage among people who will actually vote. That means the masses. The masses see Hillary as having higher negatives than Jeb Bush otherwise Jeb Bush wouldn't have more voting blocs simply put.


    You forget it doesn't matter if people are tired of them. It will be those two. So the question then becomes, who has the stronger, more forceful voting blocs come election>? That would be Jeb Bush.

    I find it unlikely I would vote for him in the general. Democrats would have to run some one really bad for me to get past ideological differences.
    ^ Pretty much this.

    That whole lesser of two evil things sucks but it's still our reality as American voters.
    I'm not going to vote for Hillary under any circumstance; I also won't vote for a Republican under any circumstance. Third-party, here I come. Again.
