A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds that more Americans are clamoring for change in the upcoming 2016 presidential election than they were in 2008.
“That desire for change is a potential roadblock for two of the leading frontrunners – Democrat Hillary Clinton (the former first lady, presidential candidate and secretary of state) and Republican Jeb Bush (the former Florida governor whose brother and father served as president). But it might be a more significant challenge for Bush, given that fewer than half of Republican primary voters believe he would provide new ideas and a vision for the future, versus nearly three-quarters of Democrats who think the same of Clinton.”
Key findings: 59% of all voters prefer a candidate who will bring greater changes to current policies, even if he or she is less experienced and tested – up from 55% who said this in July 2008 during the general-election contest between Barack Obama and John McCain.
