Marco Rubio Woke Up to Very Bad News This Morning

A lot is on the line for Florida Senator and GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio . The primary for his home state is a winner take all. Rubio has declared that he will win Florida, a feat that will take nothing short of a miracle since he has consistently trailed bloviating billionaire Donald Trump in the polls.

Rubio, no doubt, has been holding on to that dream of a possibility after a poll last week showed him within eight percentage points of Trump. But, a new Monmouth poll released Monday morning shows a dramatic shift in current polling which does not bode well for Rubio.

The new poll has Donald Trump with a resounding 17 point lead over Rubio, 44 – 27. Texas Senator and constitutional conservative Ted Cruz is at 17-percent and Ohio Governor John Kasich has nine-percent support.

 A poll from Quinnipiac has similar bad news for Rubio. That poll, also released on Monday, shows Trump with a 24-point lead in Florida, the state he calls his second home.
