After that icy 1992 campaign, members of the Bush family helped campaign against Clinton in 1996, and Clinton returned fire when George W. Bush ran for president in 2000. George W. Bush, by the way, ran in part to "restore honor and dignity" to the office of the Presidency. The implication there is that Clinton tarnished it.
Since 1992 every Presidential election except 2012 had either a Bush or a Clinton trying to run for President. If you want to go back even further in 1988, George H.W Bush ran for President and won. In 1980 and 1984, George H.W. Bush ran for Vice President under Ronald Reagan. George H.W. Bush also ran for the Republican Presidential nomination in 1980. If you want to think of it like this, we have had a Bush on a Presidential ticket in every election since 1980 except 1996, 2008, and 2012. Only once in American history has a Bush and Clinton faced off in a Presidential race. That was in 1992 which Bill Clinton beat George H.W. Bush in his run for reelection. Its very well possible that we might see another Bush vs. Clinton face off in 2016.
It's no big surprise that Hillary Clinton has come back down to earth polling-wise in the last few months. Her stumbles aside, it was basically bound to happen eventually -- for a whole host of reasons.
Clinton went from leading the Republican field by high double digit to leading by just a few points. As Hillary comes more into the spotlight people more starting to like her less for President. When she left the Obama administration she was flying high and winning all the polls simple based off of name recognition. Now that she is getting more involved in policy making Americans are seeing who she really is. What seemed to be a easy win for Clinton in 2016 is turning out to be a very tough road head for both Republicans and Democrats.

There has been a lot of talk about why Hillary Clinton will run for President in 2016, but not a lot about why Hillary Clinton won't run for President in 2016. I think there is an equal chance on whether she will run or not.
Hillary Clinton's minions are hard at work assembling a political machine and fine tuning it for another go at the White House. Mrs. Clinton is doing her part preparing for a run as well, churning out a bland memoir about the "hard choices" she faced as secretary of state and coyly positioning herself (again) as the inevitable nominee of the party. But after the troubled beginning to her book tour, we're beginning to see the reasons why Hillary may eventually decide to pull the plug on a 2016 presidential run. Here are five:
Since December of 2012 Hillary Clinton's favorability rating has been on a steady decline. At that time it was at 70%. Now according to a new poll conducted by Bloomberg, Hillary Clinton's rating is at 52%. That's down from 56% which she had in March.
So what does this mean for the 2016 Election? Well first off if Hillary Clinton's numbers continue to drop and Democrats don't see her as the inevitable nominee anymore we may see the rise of Vice President Joe Biden, Governor Cuomo, Governor O'malley and any of the other no name recognition potential Democratic candidates.
When it comes to the general election, a low favorability rating shows that there is weakness in a Hillary Clinton Presidential candidacy. Something that we did see in 2008 and something that the liberal media is trying to cover up for 2016.
Survey USA Election 2016 Florida Presidential Survey:
Jeb Bush was the former Governor of Florida.
Survey of 850 Florida registered voters. The survey was conducted on June 5, 2014 - June 10, 2014.
Hillary Clinton has zero accomplishments that would allow her to be President. Her performance as a carpetbagger Senator was mediocre, her tenure as Secretary of State was awful, and please don't get me started with her being First Lady. Besides the fact that being First Lady does not qualify you to be President or any elected official for that matter.
Lets not forget she is not unbeatable. She lost in a primary to an inexperienced Illinois Senator who spent more time campaigning for President than actually serving in the Senate.
Right now all the polls are based off of name recognition. If we use the polls right now to predict the 2016 Presidential election than we should have President John McCain right now since at this point in time for the 2008 election McCain was beating Obama. In fact he was beating Obama by 2 points in New York.
Hillary Clinton is being pushed by the Democrats because she is their only hope. They don't have a young charismatic teleprompter candidate like Obama in 2008. They have no one besides Hillary that can have a shot at winning the Presidency in 2016.
