Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's image among Republicans has steadily worsened over the past 5 ½ months. His current net favorable rating of -1 (44% favorable, 45% unfavorable) among Republicans is significantly lower than his +27 (54% favorable, 27% unfavorable) rating in mid-July.
Bush's overall familiarity among Republicans -- defined as the percentage who know him well enough to rate him either positively or negatively -- was already high (81%) when Gallup began tracking the candidate images in mid-July. That score has since edged upward, to 89%, second only to Donald Trump's 94% among the major GOP candidates.
