I wonder why Jeb Bush requested his name to be omitted from the CPAC Straw Poll that will be taken over this weekend? Never the less, I'm glad he isn't on the poll. I can't wait to see who comes out the winner of the poll. My guess is Chris Christie will not fare well after he has been seen courting around with Obama.

either:

A): he wants to distance himself from CPAC

B): he actually has no intention of running in 2016

C): all the above.

"Since the straw poll was first held in 1976, only two of its winners have gone on to win the presidency — Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush. Only one other poll winner, Mitt Romney, even went on to win the Republican nomination (Romney is the all-time winning-est CPAC straw poll contender, with four victories: in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2012).
The other straw poll winners: Jack Kemp (three-time winner), Phil Gramm, Steve Forbes, Gary Bauer, Rudolph Giuliani, George Allen and Ron Paul (two-time winner)."
