A conservative activist says he hopes voters will not be forced into a rematch of 1992 when they elect the next president in 2016.
Looking at the polls, there seems to be little chance that Democrats will nominate anybody but Hillary Clinton next year, and on the Republican side Jeb Bush continues to lead most polls and has the strong financial backing of the party.
It was George H.W. Bush versus Bill Clinton in 1992.
So will it be Jeb Bush versus Hillary Clinton 24 years later?
"I hope we're not headed for a repeat of 1992," says Gary Bauer of American Values. "Our political system ought to be able to do better than giving us a choice of only two more established American political families."
Bauer touts the results of an interesting poll. The public was split evenly over whether Clinton represents the past or the future, and voters were asked the same question about Bush.
"It's overwhelming that voters say he represents the past," Bauer says of the former Florida governor. "So it's hard for me to understand why any wing of the party would want to reject those more forward looking voices and rally around the one candidate that the public thinks represents the past."
In a compilation of polls, Bush has a narrow lead ahead of Gov. Scott Walker at RealClearPolitcs.com, but he is tied or behind another candidate in several of the polls.
Clinton, on the other hand, is besting Bernie Sanders by 48 points, with one poll showing her 56 points ahead.
