When the GOP Establishment Sees Which Candidate is Liked the Most Their Heads Will Explode

The GOP establishment, the Mitch McConnell, Karl Rove, John McCain-type RINO relics within the Republican Party, are surely going to have collective migraines after reviewing the results of a new poll released on Friday on the various presidential candidates favorability ratings among Republicans.

You know that guy who is the most hated in Washington, D.C., hated because he has fought against the “Washington Cartel,” the elitist cronies in both parties? He’s LOVED by Republican voters, as GALLUP reveals:

Gallup Poll GOP Presidential Candidates Favorability

Only 16% of those polled found Ted Cruz “unfavorable,” despite media reports, and attacks from fellow presidential contenders, giving him a “net favorability” rating of 45 points, when combined with the 61% favorability rating — the highest among any of the Republican candidates. Cruz is followed by Dr. Ben Carson, Marco Rubio, and Mike Huckabee.

GOP establishment and FOX News favorites, John Kasich and Jeb Bush come in second-to-last and last respectively, with Jeb Bush actually having a net negative rating of a -1%, despite spending a reported $59 million thus far in his faltering campaign.

Gallup points out that Jeb Bush’s net favorability has dropped a whopping 39 points since July among men and 13 points among women — an amazing crash.

Current frontrunner Donald Trump, who has the highest name I.D. among all the candidates at 94%, had the second highest unfavorable rating, with 35% of Republicans viewing the bombastic billionaire in a negative light, second only to Jeb Bush.
