Jeb is not going to exit the race. Romney had flailing support in 2012, and was nominated in the end. Both are the establishment pick; Jeb's in until the general election is over. The race will be Bush v Clinton

Look it's not going to be Trump or Carson. Paul is done and Cruz has no staying power beyond Iowa. It'll come down to Bush versus Rubio, and the latter has not seen the scrutiny to which Bush, by virtue of being a President's brother, has been subjected. Rubio is not up to it, this time (though I think he is a very viable future nominee). Bush is still the favorite this time around.

So to answer your question - I think Bush will exit the race when he picks up the phone around 10:30 pm Eastern Standard Time, Tuesday, November 8, 2016, to concede the race to President-elect Clinton.

Sorry, but Romney was never as far down the toilet in the polls as Jeb is now, so that's a spurious comparison. At his nadir, Romney never dropped below about 18%. Currently, Bush is polling at 4%, and cutting staff because donations dropping precipitously.

I would be surprised in Jeb dropped out before year's end. That's sad, because he's probably one of the 2 or 3 sane, reasonably competent Republicans running. But the multitude of current Republican electorate seems to prefer hollow, vague rhetoric to reasonably coherent rhetoric, so Bush is a goner.

IMHO Jeb or Hillary will NOT make out of the primaries.

Hilary is virtually a lock for the nomination. Bernie's support has been declining over the past few weeks, and no other Democratic candidate even registers a blip in the polls.

As I said, Jeb appears to be going nowhere.

The sooner he quits the better. He's the weakest of all the candidates and spends most of his time tearing down other Republicans. Maybe he can register and run as a Democrat.

If he is nominee or Rubio is...I am going to start figuring the GOP enjoys losing because that's EXACTLY what's going to happen. There is a reason I didn't vote GOP in 2008 or 2012! I don't vote for RINO'S! I will vote 3rd party again...got no problem doing it...and I will be 3 for 3 in picking who wins the presidency....this time it will make me literally sick to my stomach to have that EVIL woman as president.

My Prediction:

Unless JEB gets orders from his puppet masters to the contrary, he will stay in the race until SC.

However, in this primary cycle of some very vocal candidates, the quiet and tepid Walker and Bush just didn't fit in. New polling has Jeb at only 3%. When Walker dropped out, he had fallen to around 5%. I see a lot of parallels between the two campaigns, and I simply can't see how Jeb will stay in the race much longer. Yes, he raised a lot of money from establishment donors, but he has been spending a lot to keep his large operation afloat (they obviously overestimated how much support he would get). Jeb is now left with an expensive campaign that is bleeding support, just like Walker's was. My question is, how long will Jeb stay in the race?

Prior to the last debate, I was confident that Jeb would at least make it to Iowa. I'm now wondering if that's possible. Jeb's donors seem ready to walk, which is not surprising given his utterly poor performance in the last three debates. Any support that he may have had in opinion polls has now vanished. When Rubio smacked Jeb down at the CNBC debate, it made the man look extremely weak and incompetent.

My guess is that when Jeb does poorly in the next debate on November 10th, which he surely will, he will be forced to drop out.

What is your prediction?
I don't see him dropping out before Iowa, I just see him doing almost nothing just like a few of the candidates are doing now: just bidding time, til is seems right to hang it up. I do not dislike Bush, I alwasy wished he could have been Pres instead of his brother, but I don't think his heart is really in the race.

For those who think he will get the nomination, well stranger things have happened, but my guess, is you are thinking with your heart, not your head. He has too many candidates he will have to climb over to accomplish the job. It is like seeing a baseball team 10 games out with a month or more to plan:can they get to the top? Maybe, if in second place, but not in 4th: they have to beat too many others.

So you voted 3rd party, what a brillant thing to do: let's make sure the GOP lose, let's vote 3rd party, all of us? Why are you calling Rubio a RINO? He is smart enough to understand the need for immegration reform regardless as to how some of us feel. He is realistic. I do not see any other issue that would lead you to call him a RINO. Will he be able to win, if he gets the nomination? Hell who knows, but I am hoping he can. Will he be a good Pres? I think yes, but that is just an opinion. I will say, I would never vote 3rd party.
