Voters Demand Real Change!

Poll: Nearly 60% of voters want change in 2016 election

Nearly 6 in 10 voters are eager for change in the 2016 presidential election, which could pose a challenge for Jeb Bush or Hillary Rodham Clinton.

An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Monday night showed 59% of registered voters believe it’s more important to find a candidate who will bring greater changes to current policies — even if that person is less experienced and tested. That compares to 55% who said the same in July 2008 when Barack Obama and John McCain faced off amid the Democrat’s call for “hope” and “change.”

Even at this early stage in the 2016 race, the cry for change doesn’t bode well for Bush and Clinton — the two candidates with strong ties to previous presidential administrations. Six in 10 voters say Bush, a former Florida governor and the son and brother of presidents, represents a return to policies in the past. That includes 42% of Republicans.
