Anew poll released today shows that an overwhelming majority of Americans would support the idea of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush taking up painting.
According to the poll, which has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points, 74 percent of those surveyed "strongly agreed" with the statement: "Jeb Bush painting would be a really good thing for the United States and also for the rest of the world."
A spokesman for Bush said that, as of yet, the former governor had made no decision to start painting but would "try to make up his mind by the end of the year" at the latest.
"Gov. Bush wants to serve his country and if he can best do that by painting, so be it," the spokesman said.
