Florida Sen. Marco Rubio was the overwhelming favorite for VP in the Conservative Political Action Conference straw poll. Rubio pulled in 34 percent of the vote, followed by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Vrig. Gov. Bob McDonnell at 9 percent.
In the presidential straw poll, Mitt Romney got 38 percent of the vote, followed by Rick Santorum (31) Newt Gingrich (15) and Ron Paul (12).
Does this straw poll regarding Rubio have any predictive value? We asked pollster Tony Fabrizio, who conducted a land-line scientific poll of Republicans finding Rubio and Christie tied at 15% nationwide for VP.
Said Fabrizio: "No predictive meaning."
So there's that.
