New Hampshire is one of the most important early states in any presidential run. The caucuses that are held in New Hampshire and Iowa can help separate primary candidates as they run for President. Currently, Jeb Bush, the brother of George W. Bush and son of George H.W. Bush sits in the lead of all potential Republic candidates while Hillary Clinton stands in the lead for any potential Democratic runners. However, Jeb has much more of an uphill battle to climb.

Hillary has the last name of Clinton, and many people look fondly on President Bill Clinton’s time in office. There were no major wars and the economy was at its highest point in years. However, when George W. Bush was in office, there was the 9/11 terrorist attack and two wars waged throughout the Middle East. Also, at this time, the economy hit its hardest times in almost 70 years according to CNN.com. Now, presidential impact on the economy usually takes years, if not decades to come to fruition thinks Susan McGalla, so many of the economic issues Bush faced were from programs developed by previous presidents. Regardless though, many look at him as the blame for this, which is cause for concern for Jeb Bush, as his last name is more of a detriment against him, even though many people outside the state of Florida, where he was governor, do not know much about the individual outside of having this last name.
