Poll: Jeb Bush Or Marco Rubio For President in 2016?

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush has not decided on whether or not to run for President in 2016, but all signs point to a Bush path to the GOP Republican nomination.

Many say that if Bush runs for President, Senator Marco Rubio will not. I disagree.

While Bush is well respected throughout many Republican circles and is the quintessential establishment Republican, Rubio is a lot more charismatic, and has a message that transcends across different voting blocs.

jeb-bushA Republican primary between the two will be interesting, in that both are perceived to be pro-Amnesty for illegal immigrants.

Bush supports a pathway to citizenship for millions of illegal aliens, and Rubio has been crushed by conservative activists for his sponsorship of the controversial “Gang of Ocho” Senate immigration bill.

Rubio has always taken a hard-lined approach to immigration reform, but his misstep in 2013, could cost him many votes. But, if pitted on this issue against Bush in a Republican Presidential primary race, Rubio will prevail. Rubio is tougher on it.

But what about Common Core education standards, which is the issue du jour of the Republican grassroots?

Bush is the Pied piper for Common Core, while Rubio is completely against it.

Advantage Rubio.
