Jeb Bush’s Social Media Problem

We all know that Jeb Bush has been crowned the 2016 GOP presidential nominee by many in the media, as well as by some politicos, who think they know what they are talking about, but really don’t.

 The conservative former Governor of Florida wishes he could forget the week he had on social media, with respect to how many times his name was engaged positively on Facebook.

 Yes, Americans are suffering from a big case of Bush “name fatigue,” and are not all that keen on his support for a pathway to citizenship for millions of illegal aliens, and for his support of Common Core education standards, so his level of unpopularity exits.

According to Buzzfeed, which “has a partnership with Facebook for the 2016 election,” and gets “two sets of data” from the social media giant, Jeb Bush’s social media interactions are in the political gutter.

Last week, Bush was less talked about than Scott Walker and Rand Paul — and less positively. The sentiment in posts about Bush on Facebook was 41% positive, compared to 59% and 55% for Walker and Paul, respectively.
