Jeb Bush claims he has to be a better candidate. Well, how about not being an establishment Republican?
Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush on Sunday downplayed polls showing he has yet to recapture his early, front-runner status but acknowledged that he needs to be a better candidate.
“Candidates have to get better, and that’s what I intend to do,” the former Florida governor told “Fox News Sunday.” “These polls really don’t matter. … I know it’s an obsession because it kind of frames the debate for people for that week. But I’m in it for the long haul.”
Bush is in sixth place among likely Republican voters, according to a Fox News poll released Sunday. He received 7 percent of the vote, and billionaire businessman Donald Trump finished first with 26 percent.
