Latest Polls are All Good for Marco

There's a lot of distaste to go around in the 2016 field. But according to a new survey, Marco Rubio is in a better spot than most.
In a Washington Post/ABC News poll out Tuesday, respondents are evenly split between American adults with favorable and unfavorable views of the Florida senator and presidential contender: 31 percent each.
Those numbers show him doing much better than fellow Floridian Jeb Bush, who has a nearly identical favorability rating—32 percent—but an unfavorability rating 20 points higher than Rubio, at 51 percent. Those high unfavorability numbers may stem in part from voters' views that he's running a dynastic (albeit unannounced) campaign: 4-in-10 respondents think Bush would follow the same policies of his father and brother, and a majority think that's a bad thing.
Hillary Clinton, Republicans' likely opponent in the general election, isn't as haunted by her predecessors. Just 24 percent said they thought she'd generally follow the same policies as her husband, Bill, and 34 percent said she'd continue President Obama's agenda.
Though a majority of voters may view Clinton as her own person, another poll out Tuesday suggests they don't care for what they see. According to the CNN/ORC poll, the Democratic front-runner earned her highest favorability rating in 14 years, at 50 percent.

Marco's rise sets collision course with Jeb Bush

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Jeb Bush’s presidential run in Florida was supposed to be a coronation. Instead, it’s shaping up as a momentous clash against his one-time protégé, Marco Rubio.

At a Republican presidential forum here on Tuesday, many of the state’s well-heeled lobbyists, elite business leaders and grizzled power-brokers — some of them longtime Bush friends and allies — expressed a growing sense that the former governor was losing momentum in Florida’s all-important, winner-take-all March primary.

The likely beneficiary: Rubio, a once-junior figure on the state’s bare-knuckled political scene who — with his powerful rhetorical style, fresh political image and compelling personal story — is proving his mettle on the national stage.
“People here have been surprised by his staying power. They thought he’d be done,” said Adam McKinnon, a Republican consultant and Rubio supporter who is the grandson of former Florida GOP Sen. Paula Hawkins. “Marco is a more mature person than they remember. They remember him as a kid who won a state House seat.”

Marco Rubio won’t back away from Iran amendments that could scuttle deal

Marco Rubio is refusing to back down from his fight to force Iran to recognize Israel, a stance that threatens to disrupt a delicately negotiated bipartisan bill that would allow Congress to review any nuclear deal with Tehran.

In an interview on Wednesday afternoon, the Florida senator and GOP presidential candidate said he has no plans to forgo his amendments to the bill, the most controversial of which would require Iran to acknowledge Israel’s statehood and present a tough vote for both parties.


Marco Rubio: 'Ridiculous And Absurd' To Believe Gays Have Constitutional Right To Marry

While his campaign touts his outreach to gay Republicans, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio told David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network this weekend that anyone who believes that gay people have a constitutional right to marriage have a “ridiculous and absurd reading of the U.S. Constitution.”
“There is no federal constitutional right to same sex-marriage,” Rubio said, before criticizing gay rights advocates for supposedly trying to shut down debate over the issue.
"It doesn’t exist. There is no federal constitutional right to same sex-marriage. There isn’t such a right. You would have to really have a ridiculous and absurd reading of the U.S. constitution to reach the conclusion that people have a right to marry someone of the same sex. There is no such constitutional right. Can a state decide to change their laws? Yes, but only through the political process, not through the court system and that’s what is happening now.
The advocates of same-sex marriage refuse to go to the legislatures because they can’t win that debate, they don’t want to have a debate in society. They want courts to impose it on people and they are not even satisfied with that. They have now gone further. They want to stigmatize, they want to ostracize anyone who disagrees with them as haters. It’s very simple. This is not a policy against anyone. I believe, as do a significant percentage of Americans, that the institution of marriage, an institution that existed before government, that has existed before laws, that institution should remain in our laws recognized as the union of one man and one woman.”
