Marco Rubio on the Rise in National Poll
A national poll of likely voters finds that U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-FL, is growing increasing popular at the national level.
A poll from Rasmussen Reports finds that 42 percent of those surveyed have a favorable opinion of the freshman senator from the Sunshine State while 31 percent see him in an unfavorable light. Rasmussen took a similar poll in April which showed that 35 percent saw Rubio as favorable and 28 percent as unfavorable.
A third of those surveyed in the new poll have strong opinions of Rubio with 22 percent of the total seeing him as very favorable and 11 percent as very unfavorable.
The poll of 1,000 likely voters was taken from June 19-June 20 and had a margin of error of +/- 3 percent.
