    The first-term Republican senator won with 30% of the vote. Trailing him were New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at 14%, House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan at 9%, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul at 8%, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal at 7% and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum with 5%. Rubio did not attend the gathering. Four others did: Christie, Paul, Jindal and Santorum. Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell also attended, yet he placed low on the list, garnering less than 2% of the vote.

    Would make a fine choice. In fact I would prefer him at the Top of the Ticket.

    Straw poll for VP? LOL! Who gives a rats ass? I have a hunch Romney will choose someone else, but he should choose Rubio. Rubio is the only person I see who can help to deliver an important state to Romney. Romney has to win Florida, and without Rubio, I don't see it happening. Even with Rubio, it will be tough, but I do believe that with Rubio and strong support from Jeb, he would have a good shot. If Romney can win Florida, he's in the hunt. Without it, I think election night will be over by 10 PM EST.

    Then you clearly haven't paid much attention.

    Indeed.

    And too bad for Rubio to be favored for a spot on a losing ticket.
