The latest New Hampshire poll shows a far more engaged electorate continuing to be a thorn in the side of the 2015/16 GOPe scheme to anoint Jeb Bush. In addition, the ruse candidates, Fiorina and Rubio have exhausted their media-fueled surge and remain static alongside Jeb Bush at 8%.
John Kasich’s ground game and almost exclusive attention to New Hampshire has garnered him a position just above Jeb, Carly and Marco. However, the vulgarians are determined to Make America Great Again!
Gravis Marketing, a nonpartisan research firm, conducted a random survey of 1,035 registered voters in New Hampshire regarding the presidential election and other areas. The poll was conducted October 5-6, 2015. The sample includes 662 Republicans, 373 Democrats, and the remainder not planning on participating in the primary, but are planning to vote in the regular elections. The poll has a margin of error of ± 3.1% [3.8% for Republican Caucus/5.1% for Democratic Caucus]. (link)
There really is a smarter, and far more engaged electorate, behind all the poll numbers this year when compared to previous election cycles. This is profoundly evidenced within the failure of Carly Fiorina and Marco Rubio, despite a massive media, Wall Street, K-Street, Madison Avenue and Park Row push to assist them in attaining higher poll numbers.
Real issues matter, and candidates who are carrying deceptions in their portfolio are being exposed far earlier than any former election. This reality makes it far more difficult for the RNC/GOPe teams to advance their preferred candidate, Jeb Bush. It’s a remarkable change in electoral understanding over the past two years.
As it currently stands, despite all of the RNC scripted rule changes, which were specifically intended to assist Jeb Bush, their current scheme is being eliminated by the continued support for Donald Trump and even Ben Carson.
In order for the RNC/GOPe road map to work, Jeb Bush has to place in the top 3 of each congressional district in the March 1 through March 14 states. He doesn’t need to win, he was never planned to win, but he needs at least a 3rd place finish. The polling which reflects Jeb below the #3 position has been consistent now for several months – this is severe trouble for the GOPe plan.
The GOPe launched Carly toward Trump, she failed. The GOPe then launched Marco Rubio toward Trump, he too failed. The next launch can be seen amid the activity on the media periphery, Super-PAC alignments, and on the Rovian horizon.
If the plan continues along the same predictable series of events, albeit much sooner than the GOPe initially designed, we shall next see the launch of:
…..It begins soon, perhaps this weekend.
