Fading in 2016 race, Jeb Bush won't budge from policy focus

The Associated Press

LONDONDERRY — A new Associated Press-GfK poll finds that the portion of registered Republican voters who think Jeb Bush could win the general election, should he win his party's nomination, has dropped to 40 percent.

That's down from 60 percent in October.

Meanwhile, 39 percent say they view Bush unfavorably. That's almost the same percentage as billionaire front-runner and frequent Bush foil Donald Trump.

Bush is focusing his campaign on policy and his ability to govern successfully.

But in another sign of trouble for Bush, the poll finds that GOP voters view Trump, the real estate mogul and reality TV star, as more competent than the two-term governor of Florida.
