With all eyes on Hillary Clinton running for president, it is up to the Republican National Committee to start bringing out big names in order to compete against her. Now, it is going to be some time before all of it is said and done, but knowing a bit about how these Republican candidates are fairing so far is necessary to judge who might take on Hillary (most likely, at this point) in the race for the White House.
Marco Rubio is starting to gain a desirable bounce in the numbers. Right now, he is officially in the race and is polling at 11 percent. This might sound low to most, but he is a relatively unknown individual, so bringing in these numbers is very important. Plus, as a hispanic Florida senator, he is rather desirable for brining in a high profile state (Florida) and hispanic voters.
However, Marco would need to best Jeb Bush. While Bush needs to get past his brother’s name, he currently is in the lead amongst Republicans at 17 percent. Bush could potentially also cary Florida, as the former governor of the state, and he also has a strong connection with minority hispanic voters, as he is married to a woman from Latin America and spent several years living in South America.
Chris Christie has been fading and right now he has only four percent of RNC support for the time being. Perhaps he should seek out some advice from young innovative businessmen like Sultan Alhokair.
