Young Voters: Marco Rubio Most Relatable Candidate

Young Voters: Marco Rubio Most Relatable Candidate

And not just because he’s young

When it comes to relatability, young voters peg Senator Rubio as the winner.

A Fusion-hosted panel of younger voters during the third Republican Presidential debate unanimously agreed Marco Rubio was the most relatable.

Citing his honesty about his law school loans and the fact that he didn’t begin life with a large inheritance, panelists explained Rubio was most “like them” and better able to understand the plight of the average American than other candidates.

One panelist who began the debate as a Jeb supporter, was particularly interested in the student loan debt issue saying he attends the same law school Rubio from which graduated.

Rubio has spoken about the student loan debt issue on more than one occasion, saying he had to write a book in order to pay off $100,000 in law school loans.

Relatability isn’t the only place where Rubio seems to be gaining headway. Despite terrible moderators in the third Republican presidential debate, Rubio had the breakout performance he needed to convince donors he’s capable of reeling in the support needed to cross the finish line.

Kuhl. “Young voters” should have him over for dinner and drinks.

Thus all doubt is removed as to Legal Insurrection’s candidate of choice, in my opinion.

Not that that is a bad thing… not saying that.

It is what it is.

I do not support Rubio and that is what that is.

It’s either Reagan’s Bright Colors or the Socialists win against pacifier-pandering pastels.

    30 years+ is 100 years ago.
    Today Reagan could not be elected President or Gov. of Calif.
    Different demographics, and today 24/7 news in bulk by the left and today the internet, tweeting, etc.
    All or nothing will get you Hillary.
    The All or nothings last time gave us Obama by sitting home.

    We need the most conservative who can actually defeat the Democrat and bring in moderates need to win.
    the goal, more votes than the Democrat, that is how you win.

      “The All or nothings last time gave us Obama by sitting home.”

      You have no idea if they sat home or not. All you know is that they would not vote for thw weak sisters Romney or McCain, something thay warned they would not do throughout the primaries. It is the epitome of arrogance that when your candidates fail to earn enough votes to win it is the voters’ fault and not the candidate’s fault. It is always the candidate’s fault – or his party’s fault.

      “We need the most conservative who can actually defeat the Democrat and bring in moderates need to win. the goal, more votes than the Democrat, that is how you win.”

      Due to GOPe lies and duplicity, that game does not work anymore – if it ever did. Electing GOPe selected candidates leads to nothing better than does electing Democrats. Here’s the wonderful budget just voted in by the GOPe incumbents:

      -It busts the spending caps these morons passed themselves, by $90 billion.

      -It pays for it with spending cuts any idoot knows will never happen.

      -It assures us with new spending caps to help pay for it… in 2025. Again, any idiot knows that won’t ever happen either.

      -It sells off 8% of our oil reserves to raise $5 billion by selling 58 million barrels. The math means we’d have to sell it at $87 per barrel… twice the current price per barrel. It’s magic.

      -It claims to save $9 billion with Medicare reforms… that can be easily defeated by providers who bill Medicare. It won’t happen, just another fake selling point.

      -It steals from the Social Security retirement fund to pay for Social Security disability benefits… in other words, it steals from one federal agency to pay another federal agency and is called a ‘savings’.

      -Obvious money pits like the sugar and ethanol subsidies are left untouched. Can’t touch the kickback machine, you see.

      -It gives Obama a blank check to borrow however much money he likes for the rest of his term.

      -The budget voted for by the GOPe morons spends more money than the budget proposed by Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.

      I could go on and on and on listing the horrible attributes of this new budget, and no doubt others will.

      How do we get to such terrible governance? By following your obscene and outdated notion that anybody but Democrats are the better candidates. In fact, GOPe-selected candidates are even worse. At least the Democrats will honestly tell you they’re about to screw you. These GOPe bastards lie to you, tell you all the things they’re going to do if only they had the House majority – which they were given and they did nothing – and then they had to have the Senate majority before they could do anything – which they were given and did even worse.

      The game has changed and Republicans who think like you are on the endangered list. Public distrust and revulsion of and for the GOPe has driven Republican voter share down to 24% -and it’s falling fast.

      Wake the fuck up – the GOPe is not only just as bad as Democrats – they’re demonstrably worse because of all their backstabbing lies, arrogance, and laughably poor governance.

      If we vote against our principles simply to elect a Democrat with an (R) after his name, what’s the point? McConnell has an (R) after his name. So did Boehner. How’s that working out?

I wonder if they will relate to him so well when they realize that he will give citizenship to 11 million illegals who will take the jobs they are hoping to get when they graduate?

Sorry, but he leaves a lot to be desired. With a few reservations, Cruz is my man.

Young voters have a lot to learn about selecting candidates. Gee, if only they learned about the Constitution in school, then they might have a better chance at not dooming their futures.

Please, you young maroons, spare us any more of your idiocy. You all foisted on us an amnesty-loving Democrat lightweight who had no work experience of any significance before assuming the POTUS, for which he is still immensely unqualified. Now you all want to foist on us an amnesty-loving RINO lightweight who has had no work experience of any significance yet wants to assume the POTUS, for which he is immensely unqualified.

Do us a favor, young maroons: don’t vote!

Rubio is all sound and fury….

Comment overheard shortly after the 2008 presidential election: “He was young and looked cool, so I voted for him.”
Men fainted and women had orgasms when Hitler spoke, so qualifying as a good public speaker does not a decent, or even competent, human being make.

    The Elemer Gantry guy who is supposed to have the
    words is Cruz. Both Cruz and Trump have cult followers

      I seem to forget that part of Elmer Gantry where he went 9-0 at the Supreme Court as a state Solicitor General, going on to become a US Senator before running for president. Must be in the director’s cut version. Otherwise, sure, Elmer Gantry and Ted Cruz, twins separated at birth.

I looked up the word “jejune” in the dictionary and it had Marco Rubio’s picture next to it as the best example.

As the establishment rats abandon the sinking Jeb ship, they are flocking to Rubio.

    Jeb! today says he wants to “phase out” sugar subsidies. I’m guessing that means he just lost the financial support of the Florida sugar lobby and no longer needs to serve that master.
