Although Jeb Bush appears to be on a roll in national polls since his official declaration 16 days ago that he is running for office, Iowa appears to be immune to that bounce, according to a new Quinnipiac poll in Iowa released on Wednesday.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker leads in the survey with 18 percent of the vote, well ahead of Donald Trump and Dr. Ben Carson, who are tied for second in the poll with 10 percent support. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are tied for fourth place with 9 percent.
In sixth place is Jeb Bush with 8 percent, followed by Marco Rubio at 7 percent. Mike Huckabee is at 5 percent. No other candidate is above 4 percent, while 5 percent remain undecided.
And Bush is definitely not viewed favorably among conservative voters in the Hawkeye State. He trails only behind Trump when it comes to who voters say they will absolutely not vote for when the Iowa Caucuses take place next January, with 24 percent vowing not to vote for Bush next year.
Bush’s favorability rankings in Iowa are 46-42 percent — that’s the third weakest approval ratings there, trailing only behind Trump and Chris Christie.
The poll was conducted from June 20 to June 29. Quinnipiac surveyed 666 likely Iowa Republican Caucus participants with a margin of error of +/- 3.8 percentage points.
