Rubio’s Immigration Push Not Winning The Hearts Of Hispanic Voters

07.02.13 02:56 PM

Even though Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) has bent over backwards – or at least 180 degrees – to help craft an immigration reform package amenable to millions of non-citizens residing in the U.S. as illegal aliens, it hasn’t helped his standing in the eyes of Latino voters.

An early poll gauging the tendencies of would-be Hispanic voters in the 2016 Presidential election shows Rubio trailing far behind other possible candidates, including Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden – though he did lead the pack of Republicans whose names have been tossed around as potential nominees.

According to the poll, conducted by Latino Decisions, eligible voters preferred Clinton over Rubio by a 66 to 28 percent margin; Biden also led Rubio 60 percent to 28 percent. Rubio did receive considerably more interest from Hispanic voters than other Republicans, though, with 29 percent favoring him over Chris Christie (14 percent), Jeb Bush (13 percent) and Paul Ryan (11 percent), among others.

Born in Miami to first-generation Cuban immigrants, Rubio was elected to his Senate seat in 2010 as a come-from-behind candidate, riding a wave of Tea Party support in winning the Republican nomination over incumbent Florida Governor Charlie Crist.
