It’s not exactly news that Jeb Bush is having trouble breaking through in the polls. In a survey released on Friday by CNN/ORC, the former Florida Governor is mired at just 3 percent nationally.

He’s not doing much better in Iowa, where a Monmouth University poll showed him at 4 percent on Monday.

But nobody is on the air more than Bush, thanks to the financial resources that his Super PAC Right to Rise has at its disposal. His latest ad is called, “Leader,” where he says “we are what war with Islamic terror.”
