Polls are as changeable as the weather, but if you’re Jeb Bush or Carly Fiorina, you’re wondering what the hell happened.
A new Monmouth University poll finds Donald Trump continues to lead the GOP pack at 28%, followed by Ben Carson at 18%, Ted Cruz at 10%, Carly Fiorina at 6%, Marco Rubio at 6%, Jeb Bush at 5%, Mike Huckabee at 4%, Rand Paul at 4%, and Chris Christie at 3%.
None of the other six candidates garners more than one percent support.
We keep hearing about the “beginning of the end for Donald Trump,” but so far he’s still out in front. The Very Serious People are beginning to think he might be a thing while the Fiornia boom lasted as long as a Columbus Day tire sale, and Jeb Bush keeps insisting on dredging up reminders of the last time we had a Bush in the White House even if he claims to be his own man.
A year from now Jeb Bush is going to be just another guy waiting in line at Starbucks on Miracle Mile in Coral Gables and secretly glad that someone else is out there getting his ass whipped by Hillary Clinton. And Carly Fiorina will be the one selling him the pumpkin spice latte.
