Well, Quinnipiac finally came out with one today. And oh boy, we're screwed:
Marco Rubio is getting trounced by Donald Trump in his own home state, according to a new Florida poll released Thursday from Quinnipiac University. The results show frontrunner Trump holding a 44-28 percent lead over second-place Rubio...
Part of me is enjoying the schadenfreude of watching Rubio lose his own state, but the other part of me is utterly horrified there is 44 percent of the Floridians around me recklessly ignorant enough to vote for a damn bankrupt fraud. Then again, this is the damn state that voted for a Medicare Fraud for Governor. Twice. /headdesk
The RealClearPolitics site has been tracking the polls, so there's a way to follow the trends up and down for the remaining victims:
|RCP Average||1/17 - 2/24||--||--||38.7||19.3||17.7||8.5||5.3||4.0||Trump +19.4|
|Quinnipiac||2/21 - 2/24||705 LV||3.7||44||28||12||--||4||7||Trump +16|
|CBS News/YouGov||1/18 - 1/21||988 LV||4.6||41||18||22||4||5||2||Trump +19|
|Florida Times-Union||1/17 - 1/17||838 LV||3.3||31||12||19||13||7||3||Trump +12|
Interesting to note how Cruz's numbers inverted downward while Rubio's went up. Also interesting is that with Jeb out, Kasich's numbers went up as much as Rubio's has.
Thing is, the numbers do not look well for Florida or America or the world. Trump right now is cruising to a solid win in a Winner-Take-All state. If Rubio fails to garner a single delegate (there are a handful still available even in the WTA format) for his OWN STATE, he might as well drop out.
I dread what will follow.
Right now, the only sane solution is don't vote Trump at all, and just don't vote Republican either. But sanity is no longer an option. I should know: I'm a Florida Man...
