Jeb Bush Would Defeat Obama in Florida

Remember when former President George H.W. Bush said that he wished Jeb would run for the Republican nomination next year? Most of us accepted the father's endorsement as wishful thinking and moved on, because there was no possible way Florida's former Governor was going to run anytime soon.

One polling firm is obviously attempting to change Governor Bush's mind.

According to Viewpoint Florida, which leans Republican, Governor Bush would defeat President Obama by almost twenty points (57-38%) in Florida, if he were to challenge the President who was elected running against his brother's record.

The survey of over 800 registered voters has Bush leading Obama all across the state and the various age groups, with the notable exception of 18-34 year olds, who are split evenly between the two 2012 choices.

I do not think this will change Governor Bush's mind, because most of America desires a new President from the Republican Party, and not another Bush, even though his policies are more Conservative than his family's other two leaders.

While the Bush's are absolute Patriots, we need fresh Republican blood running the show, and I want Jeb to sit on the sidelines this time around.

What say you?
