Romney is now making robo calls for Rubio in Florida and Rubio should wish Romney was leaving very fast as Romney isn't a favorite of anyone I spoke with and who was in favor of Romney and went to his rally's in 2012!

As much as I want to believe the poll and as much as I laugh at those Trump supporters who think Trump is a shoe, those like you, I to wonder how they know? Maybe they are basing it on exit polling.

He held a single rally, on day of election, announced at the last minute and he had same crowd size as Cruz, who had campaigned heavily in the state. Beyond that, Trump had no presence nor money spent in Kansas.

This speaks for itself too.

This speaks for itself.
Interesting comparison you are making; Rubio spent much of the weekend in Puerto Rico. And comparing a rally in Orlando with Jacksonville is a bit on the silly side. I might add, according to my daughter those Orlando figures are way, way off. Were you there may ask?

That is my question, too. One of the Rubio communications guys said they were ahead based on Early Voting and no one bothered to ask him how he knew.

Why would the people of Florida vote for a man with such a terrible absentee record? Gee, I wish I could skip work and still collect a full pay check of $174, 000. From https://www.govtrack.us/congress/mem...o_rubio/412491

From Jan 2011 to Mar 2016, Rubio missed 226 of 1,514 roll call votes, which is 14.9%. This is much worse than the median of 1.7% among the lifetime records of senators currently serving. The chart below reports missed votes over time.
If Marco wins FL it still means nothing for his chances as the nominee. It's the only primary he would or could win.

why would Rubio spend much of the weekend in P.R. when he is getting his a$$ kicked here in the states including his home state of Florida?

Rubio didn't have to campaign in P.R., he had that territory won since P.R. will go for whom the establishment picks.

Maybe Rubio can run for the governor of Puerto Rico.

More than anything it looks like the sample size is quite small with the early vote so the MOE is quite high. The overall sample size is around 400. From a Scientific standpoint a 400 size sample is a little low, but nothing that far off.


However, the problem with an overall sample size being that small is when you break out certain portions of that poll (or sub-samples), those sub-samples wind up being very small and have high MOE's, For example about 1/5 of the overall sample in this poll stated they voted early, so Rubio's 25% early vote lead is basically based off 80 people.

Rubio doesn't apparently think this but Romney is only encouraging him to win in Florida and stay in the race because Romney thinks he'll (Romney) be given the nomination in a brokered convention. It's why he's rooting for Kasich to win Ohio, too. It's why Romney hasn't endorsed anyone.

Still waiting for some reporter, any reporter, to ask Romney if Trump's tax plan will hurt Romney.
