2012 Presidential Race Politics

VP Rubio could put Romney over in key states

May 10, 2012


The same Suffolk University poll that I reported earlier this morning also show that U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) could make a difference if Mitt Romney chose him as his running mate. Actually, both Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and former Gov. Jeb Bush could move voters to Romney. A Romney-Bush ticket would lead Obama-Biden by 2 points, and a Romney-Rubio ticket would lead Obama-Biden by 3 points, 47 percent to 44 percent.

“A small percentage of Obama voters would leave the Democratic ticket to follow Rubio, tipping the scales to the GOP,” said Paleologos. “In a contest likely decided by 1 or 2 points, Rubio’s ballot presence could be the key to Florida’s electoral votes.”
