What's in a surname? If you're Jeb Bush, it could be the difference between life in the White House and a failed presidential bid.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey
has found the Sunshine State's former governor comes with a downside that the other Republican candidates he faces don't have.
His famous last name.
The survey reveals that 43 percent of likely voters say they are less likely to vote for Bush due to the fact that his father, George H.W. Bush, and brother George W. Bush both served as president.
But another 15 percent said they are more likely to vote for Jeb Bush because of the Bush dynasty's political stature.
Thirty-nine percent of those polled said the Bush name would have no impact on their vote. Three percent weren’t sure.
The survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted June 14 and 15, 2015 by Rasmussen, with a sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points.
