Bush's net favorable rating among Republicans was at 27 percent from July 8-21, but has dropped to minus one percent from Dec. 18-Jan. 5, according to the latest Gallup poll.

Bush was asked on Newsmax Now what he thought was the main reason for the sharp decline.

"Hell if I know," Bush replied. "I don’t really care.”

“I’m focused on these early states where my numbers are much better and I’m gonna earn this nomination in a way that will draw people towards our cause,” Bush continued. “And I do sense that people are taking it seriously now. Both in Iowa and New Hampshire people make decisions really late.”

Iowa's caucus is Feb. 1.
