In the new year, the 2016 presidential race is going to start sorting itself out. Both parties are expected to have competitive contests, but more attention is likely to be paid to the GOP field.
Two of the most discussed potential candidates are not exactly fresh faces on the political scene: former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and the 2012 Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney. According to two recent polls, the American people are not interested in a retread from the past and want someone new.
According to Rasmussen Reports, most Americans believe that Republicans should seek a fresh face to run for president:
Most voters – including Republicans – think the GOP should start fresh during the next presidential election. But a sizable number of voters also express concern about families from both sides of the political aisle holding too much influence.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 64% of Likely U.S. Voters believe Republicans should look for a fresh face to run for president in 2016. Just 10% think the GOP should promote a candidate who has run in the past. Twenty-five percent (25%) are not sure.
