New GOP Poll: Bobby Jindal, Jim Gilmore, George Pataki and Lindsey Graham at 0%

The new Quinnipiac University poll may be pushing certain names into the headlines, but the other news is the names of candidates who should be stepping aside: Bobby Jindal, Jim Gilmore, George Pataki and Lindsey Graham. None of these candidate registered a full percentage point.

Just ahead of this group at the bottom is Rick Perry and Rick Santorum with 1%.

To fuel the divide, a second question was asked: “Are there any of these candidates you would definitely not support for the Republican nomination for president: Bush, Carson, Christie, Cruz, Fiorina, Gilmore, Graham, Huckabee, Jindal, Kasich, Pataki, Paul, Perry, Rubio, Santorum, Trump, or Walker?”

Graham led the aforementioned group (5th overall) with 13%. Perry and Gilmore were at 9%, Santorum and Pataki at 8%.

Sticking with just the Republican voters, the favorability was determined which resulted in Graham and Gilmore last overall at -5, just below Pataki at -2.

17 candidates and this group appears to be headed in the wrong direction, so how much longer should they stay in the race?

The poll of 666 registered Republicans was conducted Aug. 20-25 had a margin of error of 3.8 percentage points.
