Despite how much Fox News tries to push for ‘Little Marco’, he isn’t doing well one bit. Check out these hard numbers.
TAMPA — Marco Rubio is in a bind. He’s down in the polls in his home state against Donald Trump, and if he doesn’t win Florida, he could be finished.
The crowd inside the Tampa Convention Center was small, but energetic, and it’s that energy that Rubio says is going to push him over the edge to win his home state.
Rubio brought a positive message, taking the high road in his bitter battle with Trump on his home turf.
Before the rally, 10News political reporter Mark Rivera asked about a new Monmouth poll that shows Rubio just 8 points behind Trump in Florida — within shooting distance.
“Like I told you guys earlier, every day that goes by, we’re going to continue to gain votes and gain support as we get closer. But it’s going to be a lot of hard work, but I’ve been here before,” Rubio said.
He’s talking about his underdog run against Charlie Crist for Florida’s U.S. Senate seat.
Rubio is down in the polls, had a late start opening campaign offices in Florida, and is turning out a few hundred to his Tampa rally compared to Trump’s nearly 11,000 at his Tampa stop.
