Donald Trump rose to victory once again in the Nevada caucus as he blew away the other GOP candidates with an overwhelming 45% of the vote with record voter turnout.
Marco Rubio predicted for the first time on Wednesday morning that he will win the Republican primary election next month in his home state of Florida and said he can still snatch the presidential nomination from Donald Trump next month – despite finishing far behind front-runner Donald trump in Tuesday’s Nevada caucuses.
The Florida senator’s promise came despite polls that show him running a distant third place in the Sunshine State, and failing to lead anywhere except Utah.
‘We’ll win in Florida. Now that Gov. Bush is no longer in the race, and him and I split up a lot of the support in Florida. That will help us,’ he boasted on ‘CBS This Morning.’
Jeb Bush, Florida’s former governor, dropped out of the race on Saturday after posting a disappointing finish in South Carolina.
Trump claimed in his Tuesday night victory speech following a strong victory in Nevada’s GOP caucuses that he could have the Republican presidential nomination sewn up in under two months.
He won with 45.9 per cent of the vote, ahead of Rubio’s 23.8 per cent and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s 21.3 per cent.
Trump is also far ahead in the most recent Florida poll, a CBS News/YouGov survey that put him in first place with 41 per cent of the vote. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is in second place there with 22 per cent, and Rubio has just 18 per cent.
