Poll: Conservative Support for Marco Rubio Plummets
The latest Public Policy Polling data bears sobering news for Senator Marco Rubio, showing his support among conservatives has substantially decreased since last month.
When asked for their preferred GOP candidate, only 17% of “very conservative” respondents favored Rubio, while only 18% of “somewhat conservative” respondents favored Rubio.
This is a steep decline from the same poll’s findings in April, when Rubio’s support was 26% among the“very conservative” and 22% among the “somewhat conservative.”
The survey was conducted between May 6–9th. The survey released in April was conducted between March 27–30th. The "Gang of 8" bill, spearheaded by Senator Rubio, was released April 17th.
Notably, Rubio’s support among Hispanics also appears to have decreased following the unveiling of the "Gang of 8" bill. The previous poll demonstrated 39% of Hispanics had a favorable view of Rubio, while the latest poll demonstrates that number has decreased to 34%.
