Heilemann: 42 Percent of Republicans Would Never Vote for Jeb Bush

Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” the co-managing editor of Bloomberg Politics John Heilemann said he was shocked when he learned from a new Bloomberg poll that 42 percent of Republicans “said they would never consider voting for Jeb Bush.”

Heilemann said, “We have a Bloomberg politics poll that just came out. We have a viability question. We went to people not to the horse race would you considerably, might consider, never consider,” he explained among “Republicans and independents, 42 percent said they would never consider voting for Jeb Bush. That was a big, that was a shocking number to us.”

He added, “A large number of people in the Republican electorate say they are done with him, they do not want a Bush on the ticket.”
