Rubio’s Campaign Set to Die in Florida
Marco Rubio’s campaign is nearing its end as the Republican candidate continues to struggle against Donald Trump in his home state of Florida. The latest polls for Florida by Monmouth and Quinnipiac have not been friendly to Rubio and have placed Trump substantially ahead of him.
- Donald Trump – 44%
- Marco Rubio – 27%
- Ted Cruz – 17%
- Donald Trump – 46%
- Marco Rubio – 22%
- Ted Cruz – 14%
- John Kasich – 10%
Rubio has been celebrating his third and fourth place finishes all election cycle. However, if he cannot even win his home state, his campaign is as good as over. A loss in Florida would show a lack of confidence in voters and how they perceive him as a weak and inexperienced candidate.
In the recent weeks, Rubio has been unable to snatch any of Trump’s momentum. Instead, Ted Cruz has climbed in the standings in various states, but Trump still looks unstoppable at this point.
Trump performed well enough at the final GOP debate, proving that he can tone down his bombastic style and deliver a “medicated” approach. If Trump can reel in his violent rallies, he should emerge, unscathed, as the Republican nominee heading into the general election. A Trump and Hillary Clinton matchup would prove favorable to him as he could expose her on a plethora of issues.
