Jeb Bush Comeback??

So there’s been a lot of people on this site & on the internet playing down Bush’s chances in the primaries after he was the “frontrunner” in the early summer when he announced his candidacy. This is my first time voting in a primary and seeing all the back & forth between the candidates, seeing Bush’s #’s fall to no return. I’ve seen good news in the past few weeks for him. For Example, here’s a few polls just came out in the past few days to take notice on:
South Carolina Polling:
Jeb Bush (R) 13%
Ben Carson (R) 9%
Chris Christie (R) 4%
Ted Cruz (R) 18%
Carly Fiorina (R) 3%
Mike Huckabee (R) 2%
John Kasich (R) 3%
Rand Paul (R) 2%
Marco Rubio (R) 11%
Rick Santorum (R) 1%
Donald Trump (R) 32%
Undecided 3%
Florida Polling:
Jeb Bush (R) 13%
Ben Carson (R) 7%
Chris Christie (R) 4%
Ted Cruz (R) 19%
Carly Fiorina (R) 4%
Mike Huckabee (R) 2%
John Kasich (R) 3%
Rand Paul (R) 3%
Marco Rubio (R) 12%
Rick Santorum (R) 0%
Donald Trump (R) 31%
Undecided 2%

Okay notice how everyone said Rubio would be the mainstream republican to break out of the pack and make everyone else pack their bags and go home. I guess the media cannot buy elections this easy! Bush is outpolling Rubio in South Carolina now and in 3rd place! I see momentum building for him especially after getting the endorsements from Lindsey Graham which I think will help his #’s a lot in SC. Also, everyone wrote him off in Florida saying Rubio would be doing better than Bush, but Rubio’s #’s fell in this poll and Bush’s #’s rose and is now beating him in the state. Lastly, looking at New Hampshire it’s pretty much a 4 or 5 way race for 2nd place. I think if Bush can place at least top 3 in NH he will have the momentum coming into South Carolina and do pretty well there to be the last standing mainstream republican. On the other side, I don’t think it will be easy to get Rubio out of the race… he will be BITTER, he’s going to have NO JOB now since he’s leaving the senate even though he doesn’t even wanna be there… sucks all that talking and endorsements isn’t helping him get into the double digits. Just another case of… peaking way too early. Good luck in 2024 Marco!

What are your thoughts on this Jeb! Momentum in polling? Do you see him doing well in any of the states i highlighted or did not highlight?
