Inside the numbers:
Eighty-five of percent (85%) of Democrats support Clinton in this hypothetical matchup, while 72% of Republicans back Bush.
Thirty percent (30%) of GOP voters say they are more likely to vote for Bush because of his family’s presidential history, but nearly as many (26%) are less likely to support him for this reason. A plurality (43%) of Republicans says it's not important. Most Democrats (74%) are less likely to vote for Jeb because of his family’s time in the White House, as are 44% of unaffiliated voters. But the same number of unaffiliated voters (44%) say it has no impact.
Men are more likely than women to think Clinton is too old to be president. Voters 40 and over believe that more strongly than those who are younger.
Eighty-eight percent (88%) of Democrats say Clinton is not too old, a view shared by 50% of GOP voters and 73% of unaffiliateds.
