Jeb surging, Rand Paul plunging in GOP primary voters poll

Jeb Bush 4By Lynn R. Mitchell

The numbers look good for Governor Jeb Bush as he continues to campaign during the 2016 presidential race.

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is losing support among likely Republican primary voters, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

The poll shows support growing for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who made his candidacy official only last week.

But Paul, who jumped in early on April 7, has shown a decline, Politico notes.

Only 49 percent of likely GOP voters said they could see themselves voting for Paul for president in June. That’s a 10 percent drop from the same survey in April, when he had just announced.

Bush headed up the poll, which 75 percent, a rise of five percent from April.

Rand Paul continues to alienate national security Republicans who are interested in protecting the homeland from terrorism attacks like those that happened on September 11, 2001 (see Christie goes after Rand Paul’s soft stance on terrorism).
