Rubio, Bush Don't Help Trump in Florida

Hillary Clinton has a slight lead over Donald Trump in Florida, a new poll finds--and adding Marco Rubio or Jeb Bush to the ticket won’t help Republicans flip the Sunshine State. 

Gravis Marketing released a poll of Florida voters over the weekend which shows Clinton ahead in Florida, the largest swing state in presidential politics. Matched up against each other, Clinton leads with 46 percent with Trump taking 42 percent and 12 percent undecided. CBS News also released a poll over the weekend which had Clinton with 43 percent and Trump with 42 percent in Florida. 

Doug Kaplan, the president of Gravis, said the Republicans had to carry Florida if they wanted to win back the White House. 

“Florida is going to be a huge battleground state for this years presidential election and this state is a must win for the GOP if they have any hope of regaining the White House,” Kaplan said. “In recent weeks, Trump has done a good job of gathering his base while Clinton is still in a hotly contested battle with Bernie Sanders – which is rapidly dividing the Democrat party. If she is able to take the nomination, she’ll have to work hard to win over some of those Sanders supporters to maintain her lead in Florida.”

Both Clinton and Trump are upside down in Florida, the Gravis poll shows. A majority--52 percent--of Florida voters see Clinton as unfavorable while 40 percent view her favorably. Trump is viewed in an unfavorable light by 54 percent of those surveyed while 38 percent see him favorably. 

The poll shows Trump would not be helped by adding Rubio or Bush, both of whom he beat in the Republican primaries, to the ticket. Rubio has been downplaying speculation that he could be Trump’s running mate, insisting he is not interested. 

Rubio is upside down in the poll with only 20 percent approving of his performance in the Senate while 56 percent disapprove of it. Rubio is not running for a second term this year and has also said he will not run for governor in 2018. 

“The polling numbers that should concern the GOP is the lack of support of Marco Rubio,” Kaplan said. “His 56 percent unfavorable rating as a senator should raise red flags to the Trump campaign if they are considering adding Marco Rubio as their vice presidential nominee in order to win Florida. Rubio was definitely damaged by his presidential run. These polls show that we are not convinced that he would help Trump as VP nor that he would necessarily win the primary for governor against other potential GOP nominees.”

Jeb Bush is also upside down in the poll with 53 percent of those surveyed viewing him as unfavorable while 28 percent see him in a favorable light. 

President Barack Obama breaks even in the poll with 46 percent of Florida voters approving of him and the same percentage disapproving of him. 

The poll of 2,542 registered Florida voters was taken from May 17-May 18 and had a margin of error of +/- 2 percent.

Let'smove on...............and, Who Cares?.......the Jebster and Marco have had their 10 minutes of fame. They're done!

So much soothsaying, So little thought. So little substance. Trump is a psychic's dream. Rubio needs a real job. Leave Jeb Bush alone. At least he has values - and believes in a form of civil government.

Bush has values?! Hah! The man is a liar! He stood on stage and PROMISED to support the Republican nominee! (No, I am not a trump supporter)

Neither Bush or Rubio could even help themselves! So, why on Earth would Trump want anything else, (besides them being quitters) from them? hahaha GO TRUMP!!

Because Trump cannot even deliver to America & the rest of the World that he could be the leader that represents the rest of America. he only represents that part of American voter which has allowed that which we thought was long gone to let out what was only repressed in the back of their hearts. That which hates people of any color and any religion which they do not agree with. If he becomes president i believe hate crimes will increase. Like he said a while back "Im here to make America White Again".

These are facts that the voters of California and New Jersey need to learn about Bernie Sanders before their primary: The Donald will destroy Bernie in November 2016. The majority of voters in this country do not know these FACTS about Bernie: Bernie had his honeymoon is Russia. Bernie has a LEGAL BASTARD son named Levi Sanders. Bernie is a Jew. Bernie has been divorced. Bernie is now married to a Catholic. Bernie has a long history of defeating REAL and REGISTERED Democrats in November final elections. Bernie voted 5 (five) times against the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act. (1) Bernie has stated that Israel murdered well over 10,000 Palestinian civilians in their last war. When NO organization in the WHOLE world has stated that. (2) Bernie failed to campaign in the WHOLE South. Is Bernie afraid to campaign with Blacks? Bernie has no Blacks on his staff in Vermont. Bernie stated that another Democrat should have run against Black POTUS Obama in the 2012 primaries. (3) No US POTUS has ever offered Bernie a job in his Cabinet or on his staff. To this day Bernie is still not registered as a Democrat in Vermont. To get out of serving his country; Bernie applied to be a Consciousness Objector. That means Bernie is against ALL WARS. “THIS WILL NOT LOOK GOOD ON MY RESUME!” No wonder Bernie leads The Donald by so much. No one knows the truth about Sanders. Bernie demands $15.00 an hour wages. That will never pass Congress. Even a Democratic Congress. Try starting passing a law with a $10.10 law. Tthen move to $12.25. And then $13.75. Bernie promises FREE COLLEGE Tuition to one and all. Even if Bill Gates had kids. The increases in Federal and State taxes will be HUGE! Try thinking first. Once all these facts are known by all American voters, The Donald will squish Bernie like a little bug. (1) The Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act (Pub.L. 103–159, 107 Stat. 1536, enacted November 30, 1993), often referred to as the Brady Act and commonly called theBrady Bill,[1][2] is an Act of the United States Congress that mandated federal background checks on firearm purchasers in the United States, and imposed a five-day waiting period on purchases. Sanders' record indicates he voted against the Brady Bill five times while he was in the House of Representatives, as Clinton claimed. AZ Fact Check counted both votes against the bill's passage and votes against advancing it to the next stage of debate as "no" votes on the legislation. (2) Bernie Sanders Accused Of Blood Libel After Claiming Israel Killed 10,000 Palestinian Civilians In Last Gaza War He got it all wrong... Yochanan Visser April 7, 2016 Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders has lost the support of the Israeli public even before the Presidential election. That’s something that even President Obama -who is the most unpopular U.S. president ever in Israel – didn’t succeed to achieve. Sanders interview with New York Daily News caused a storm in the Jewish State after the Democratic candidate claimed Israel had randomly killed 10,000 innocent Palestinian Arabs and had bombed hospitals during the last Gaza War in 2014. A gross inflation of the casualty statistics enough to make even Hamas's own propaganda chiefs blush. Former Israeli ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren said Sanders’ remarks constituted a blood libel and demanded an apology: “Mr. Sanders doesn’t mention the many thousands of Hamas rockets fired at us. He doesn’t mention the fact that Hamas hides behind civilians. He doesn’t mention the fact that we pulled out of Gaza in order to give the Palestinians a chance to experiment with statehood, and they turned it into an experiment with terror. He doesn’t mention any of that. That, to me, is libelous,” (3) “When President Obama was running for re-election, I was glad to step up and work very hard for him, while Senator Sanders was trying to find someone to primary him,” Democratic opponent Martin O’Malley said during a Democratic forum on Friday. In his ABC interview, Sanders noted that he discussed criticism of Obama on his radio show, and that in the run-up to 2012 he said people had the right to challenge the president if they wanted to.

Sunshinestatenews NEEDS a word/posting limit! Too many senseless, too many worded posts!

And I wish Mary will have a wonderful life under POTUS Hillary!
