    Marco Rubio Drops to 5th in Iowa Poll

    Rubio Drops to 5th in Iowa Poll





    by Mike Flynn 12 Jul 2013 1857 post a comment

    On Thursday, Public Policy Polling released its latest 2016 tracking poll of Iowa Republican voters. The results show a dramatic shift in Republican voter sentiment. Sen. Marco Rubio, who had led in previous surveys, has dropped to 5th place. Sen. Rand Paul now leads the pack in the critical first-caucus state.

    Sen. Rand Paul leads with support from 18% of Republican voters. Following him are Gov. Chris Christie (16%), Rep. Paul Ryan (15%), former Gov. Jeb Bush (14%), Sen. Marco Rubio (11%), Sen. Ted Cruz (10%), former Sen. Rick Santorum (6%), Gov. Bobby Jindal (2%) and Gov. Susan Martinez (1%).

    PPP's last 2016 survey in Iowa was conducted in February. Sen. Rubio's support has dropped 5 points since then. Since the February poll, Rubio has been the most public supporter of the Senate amnesty bill, legislation that is increasingly unpopular with the Republican base.

    Among the more vocal opponents of the Schumer/Rubio bill are IA Sen. Chuck Grassley and IA Rep. Steve King. Getting on the opposite side of these two popular lawmakers doesn't seem to be a winning strategy in the Hawkeye State.

    Marco Rubio’s Iowa problem

    July 17, 2013
    Posted by
    CNN Political Reporter Peter Hamby



    Washington (CNN) – Does Marco Rubio have an Iowa problem?

    If Sam Clovis is any barometer, the answer is an unmitigated yes.

    Clovis is a mustachioed, suspenders-wearing college professor from Sioux City who's running for Senate in Iowa, as a Republican. He’s not the favorite to win the nomination, but he’s no slouch either.

    He also happens to be a popular conservative talk radio host who speaks the language of grassroots Republicans and has a keen sense of what motivates them.

    So the fact that Clovis posted a low-budget web video Wednesday trashing Rubio for his work on the Senate immigration reform bill is an ominous sign for the Florida senator and would-be presidential candidate.

    Despite recent hand-wringing about the flawed nature of the Iowa caucuses, the state is all but assured to keep its leadoff position in the 2016 nomination process. If Rubio runs, he'll have to make nice with Iowa conservatives. They just might not be nice to him.

    “I might have expected this out of John McCain,” Clovis says of the immigration bill. “But we certainly didn’t expect this out of Marco Rubio. Marco Rubio was elected by conservatives in the state of Florida and he was supported by conservatives all over the United States. And there is nothing conservative in this bill.”

    Like any self-styled member of the tea party movement, Clovis labels the bill “amnesty,” says it fails to adequately secure the border with Mexico and claims it will impose a heavy financial burden on state and local governments.

    Clovis punctuates the video with a straightforward admonition: “Shame on Marco Rubio.”

    Bottom line: If midterm Republican candidates in Iowa think they can score points with conservative voters by attacking Rubio and tying him to President Obama and reborn pragmatist John McCain, Rubio’s got some critical repair work to do on the right.
