Pollster and president of the Sen. Ted Cruz -aligned Super PAC “Keep the Promise” Kellyanne Conway told Breitbart News Daily host Stephen K. Bannon Wednesday that it was “nonsense” to suggest the Texas Republican drop out to endorse Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

“This whole nonsense that Cruz should drop out and endorse Rubio so then he can beat Donald Trump is a complete misread of the Republican electorate and of the mood of the electorate,” said Conway.

“Rubio has fewer delegates. People want Cruz to drop out. Why doesn’t Rubio drop out?” asked Conway.

She criticized Rubio as a fast-talker: “Rubio never actually talks about substance. I was offended he actually gave an inaugural address the other night” in South Carolina, said Conway.

Conway said her Cruz-aligned Super PAC plans to hit Rubio on certain issues: “We’ll be hitting Rubio on his tax plan. It’s a disaster. We’ll be hitting him on his absenteeism.”

“Rubio wants to run on bio and bravado; Cruz wants to run on philosophical differences and conservative purity,” Conway said.

She also pointed out that Rubio isn’t even confident he can win a single state. Saying Rubio won’t predict a single victory for himself before Florida, Conway said: “The ‘chosen one’ has to wait until March 15 to win his home state. That’s the Rudy Giuliani strategy.”

“That’s supposed to scare Donald Trump, that Marco Rubio’s going to go win Florida, where Rubio is currently losing to both Trump and Cruz in the polls,” Conway said. “Meanwhile, Cruz is winning in his home state of Texas by seven points.”

“Looking at Super Tuesday, this has always been seen as a big day for Ted Cruz… I think Ted Cruz has a better chance of winning his home state of Texas, than Marco Rubio has of winning his home state of Florida,” she added.
