Campaigns

Here’s a few takeaways from the 2016 Presidential campaign trail.

The Hill is reporting that The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is preparing to setup debates for Hillary Clinton, who is sure to have at least a couple challengers. If the other candidates are serious, Clinton will get bruised-up even more.

The more former Florida Governor Jeb Bush speaks, the less people like him. Bush’s poll numbers have been steadily dropping, since he started giving what are essentially campaign speeches. It’s going to be hard for Bush to make it out of the early primaries.

The big issue? Bush’s high negatives are a problem.

So far, the republican standouts are Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and Florida Senator Marco Rubio. Walker’s Governor status, plus the fact that he’s already been vetted and attacked by Democrats makes him a solid frontrunner. A well-liked one for that matter.

A Walker-Rubio ticket would be formidable.

It’s going to be boring watching these folks smack each other around for awhile. But if republicans can focus on Clinton and their own policy ideas, instead of each other, they’ll have a great chance to win.
