Jeb Bush has reached a new level of unpopularity.

According to a Gallup poll released on Friday, Jeb Bush can now boast a net favorability rating of -1. This means that among a sample of Republicans and Republican-leaning dependents, 44 percent hold a favorable opinion of Jeb and 45 percent hold an unfavorable opinion, leaving the candidate in the negatives.

These are very bad numbers, the worst of any major GOP candidate. John Kasich, according to the same poll, holds up at +5. Ted Cruz is on top, with polling from the last two weeks placing his net favorability at +45.

Gallup notes, however, that while Bush is the least popular candidate among Republican respondents, Donald Trump actually has the lowest net favorability among a cross-party sampling of Americans: -26 for Trump, -13 for Bush.
