Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush hosted a town hall today with an audience of about 400 people. Filling a middle school cafeteria in Bedford, New Hampshire, the audience appeared quite supportive of Bush.
Town halls and rallies have been increasing in size as the Tuesday New Hampshire primary approaches, with Bush seeing his audiences grow. His poll numbers have also improved, although it’s more in the nature of a modest rising rather than a surge. He’s battling with two current governors, Ohio’s John Kasich and New Jersey’s Chris Christie for dominance of what is essentially a second tier behind Trump, Cruz and Rubio. With two days to go Bush faces a critical moment Tuesday, with a weak or modest showing likely to end his campaign.
