…. at least he is a real bona fide candidate. Regardless of how fraught with inherent deception Jeb Bush’s intent and purposes for seeking the GOP nomination, he is in fact a real candidate; with, factual action taking place on the ground to support his efforts.
Like Donald Trump, Jeb Bush is structurally in the race -with infrastructure- trying to win it. The other multiple candidates, not so much; actually, not even close.
Spurred by our discovery of the internal Republican National Committee efforts to engage with State Republican party apparatus, vis-á-vis “ongoing rule changes“, numerous boots on the ground have begun reporting the absence of candidate activity amid various (Pre-March 16th) primary states.
Multiple calls to local and state Republican party leadership originally intended to find out when they were going to make decisions on proportional rules for delegate distribution, have accidentally identified another aspect (it’s Déjà vu to the pre-primary spring ’14 all over again).
Similar to the early political indicators we identified in the period of October ’13 through May ’14, which eventually led to the discovery of the larger GOPe road map, there are events which -if they were transpiring- would indicate who has the best opportunity for success in the 2016 primary race.
Put another way, if a candidate was genuine, there are specific actions needed now in order for that candidate to be reasonably considered ‘making-an-earnest-effort’. Absent of those actions, the motivation is transparently somewhat “less than” making a real bid to attain the GOP nomination.
A great example is Virginia (again hat-tip to boots on ground) where any candidate must gather 5,000 signatures from ‘registered republican voters’, and include 200 signatures from each of the 11 congressional districts (also registered republican voters), along with the application fees, to be considered a candidate. All of this must be accomplished by December.
Only two candidates, Jeb Bush and Donald Trump, have efforts underway to qualify there. No Ted Cruz, no Marco Rubio, no Carly Fiorina, not even Jim Gilmore (former gov) is making a visible effort. You make up your own mind what that implies, but the reality doesn’t change.
Same thing, same non-players, going on in Illinois, Wisconsin and Florida.
FIRST FOUR – Iowa and New Hampshire is less predictive of campaign intent because all candidates HAVE TO make an impression to keep up appearances. However, even there, the real action is only within Team Trump and Team Jeb with Carson, Cruz and Fiorina doing the next closest effort.
South Carolina is easy-peasy because all it takes is a registration form, filing fee and voila’ name on ballot. Nevada (caucus) state is more similar to Iowa, and again similar activity.
However, once you go beyond those February race states, that’s when things really shrink. Calling around the various states election offices and republican party offices you find there’s little to no effort except for Jeb Bush and Donald Trump campaigns.
Understanding the GOPe road map, and understanding the RNC/GOPe have -for the past two years- planned for Jeb –and only Jeb– you begin to get a picture of why Donald Trump focuses almost exclusively on Jeb Bush. Quite simply, and factually, no-one else is extending their efforts beyond those February States.
Initially a supporter of someone other than Jeb or Trump might say: “well the campaign is getting around to it later”; except the “later” part is rapidly running out of time.
Taking the Thanksgiving holidays into account, there’s only about five or six full weeks left to do the ground work and get your nominee on the ballot in multiple states.
Winning in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina or Nevada doesn’t mean squat if the candidate isn’t eligible for North Carolina, Ohio, Illinois, Virginia, Texas etc. and few candidates, well, actually only Trump and Bush, have active efforts underway in every state to meet the qualification efforts for ballot placement.
Summary – To those who support someone other than Jeb Bush or Donald Trump, you might want to call the campaign office and kick a boot up their butt. Of course, that assumes there’s a candidate motivation that could actually be enhanced by such boot placement…..
….I’m not so certain such motivation exists for many of them.
