A new poll suggests more Republicans don’t want to see Jeb Bush as the Republican presidential nominee than those that do.

According to a Suffolk University/USA Today poll, Bush was the GOP contender that received the most disapproval, followed by former Sen. Rick Santorum and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal who both had zero favorability shown in the poll.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker faired the best with more Republicans approving him as the Republican Party’s nominee than disapprove of him.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Dr. Ben Carson and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) were on the favorable side, according to the Washington Post.

Former HP CEO Carly Fiorina, and the only Republican female who has suggested entering the race, had only a percentage showing approval, with no disapproval as a GOP contender.
