|Description||Supporters of Jeb Bush say Bush fatigue will not be a significant problem if the former Florida governor decides to make a presidential run. |
Many Republicans think Bush would be a frontrunner for the Oval Office if not for his brother’s lingering unpopularity.
Jeb Bush said in July that he is not running in 2012, but supporters are looking down the road to 2016.
And new polling gives them hope that time and President Obama’s tenure in the White House will change voters’ perceptions.
“I do think the term 'Bush fatigue' probably summarizes the challenge Jeb would have had running, even here in Florida,” said former Rep. Tom Feeney (R-Fla.), who served as speaker of the Florida House of Representatives under Bush and considers him a friend and mentor.
