According to a recent Latino Decisions poll, Florida voters’ likelihood of voting for presidential candidate Mitt Romney may not be swayed if he chooses U.S. Senator Marco Rubio to run as his Vice President.
With the Republican National Convention coming up in August in Tampa, Fla., many have wondered if choosing a Latino VP to run alongside him will sway Latino voters in Florida and Latino voters throughout the country.
Latino Decisions asked a very straightforward question about the potential for Romney to influence the Latino electorate: “Marco Rubio, a Cuban American Republican Senator from Florida, has been rumored to be on the list of likely nominees for Vice-President. If Mitt Romney selects Senator Rubio as his Vice-Presidential candidate, what effect would it have on your likelihood of voting Republican in the November 2012 presidential election? Would it make you much more likely to vote Republican for President, somewhat more likely, somewhat less likely, or much less likely to vote Republican for President, or have no effect on your vote?”
The results of that specific question can be seen below.
