CNN Panel: Jeb Bush’s Poll Numbers Show He’s in ‘Big Trouble’

CNNThe Friday politics panel of CNN’s New Day agreed that Republican Jeb Bush’s presidential campaign was in trouble, citing his poor poll numbers and his wooden attacks on Donald Trump.

CNN’s John King noted that while Trump’s poll numbers have gone up and Ben Carson more than tripled his support, Bush’s support has fallen from 12% down to 8% in the newest Monmouth poll. “There’s a reason that Bush better get ‘damn mad,’” King said, quoting Bush’s attack on Trump. “He’s in trouble.”

“He’s in big trouble,” agreed AP’s Julie Pace. “I mean, he was supposed to be the joyful front-runner, he was supposed to have the money that would scare off candidates. None of that is happening right now.”

The panel agreed that Bush’s “angry” attacks on Trump just didn’t feel natural.“You look at it… Donald Trump is getting in his head, and it’s showing. It’s showing on the trail,” said Daily Beast’s Jackie Kusinich.
