New Poll Shows Jeb Bush Rising in New Hampshire
The Week – Jeb Bush has risen to second place in New Hampshire, according to Emerson College Polling Society numbersreleased Wednesday. While Donald Trump still holds an impressive lead in the state with the support of 35 percent of Republican-leaning voters, Bush has 18 percent support, putting him in second place. Ohio Gov. John Kasich is the only other double-digit Republican, with 14 percent of support.
“Bush’s performance may have been helped by the heavy spending on attack ads by his Super PAC, Right to Rise USA,” one of Emerson’s analysts, Marion Kinosian, said in the release. Right to Rise has reportedly spent $12 million in New Hampshire alone.
