Marco Rubio Speaks To Empty Stadium In Florida

Nobody showed up for a Rubio campaign event at a stadium.
Marco Rubio Speaks To Empty Stadium In Florida

I almost feel bad for Marco Roboto, but not really. A report from Fox Business came out yesterday saying if Roboto's poll numbers don't improve soon in Florida, he's going to drop out.

Citing top Marco Rubio donors, Fox Business reported Wednesday that the Republican candidate will drop out of the presidential race before the crucial Florida primary if his poll numbers don’t increase in that state.

“They’re saying barring some better polling… he will likely suspend before Florida. That’s what his money-men here in New York City are telling me,” host Charles Gasparino reported.

“The feeling is despair,” he said bluntly. “We talk about paths to victory. This is what his guys are saying; they don’t see a path to victory and they think it’s better to get out sooner rather than later.”

Here he is, having a rally in Hialeah, Florida, and not having anyone to talk to.

I wonder if this event is the straw that broke his back. I'm sure the Donald will have something to say about this pathetic outing soon. You know, it's all performers nightmare to play to an empty house, whether it's a play or a gig, so this must be very deflating for the Senator.

UPDATE: Rubio told Megyn Kelly last night that he's not dropping out, kiddies.
