Rublicans simply don't understand non-whites. They convince themselves that Marco Rubio is their answer to the Latin problem -- like Michael Steele was the answer to Obama.
What underlies the GOP's problem is the essentially racist view that non-whites are incapable of understanding issues and vote simply on skin color. There may actually be some projecting going on here, but I digress.
Quinnipiac University has just released a national poll testing a variety of possible 2016 pairings with 1,944 registered voters and had a margin of error of +/-2.2 percent.
Rubio's popularity, it would seem, is only among white Republicans. Clinton led Rubio by a 50-34 margin among all groups. But among Latin voters? Clinton mops the floor with Rubio 60-24.
Chris Christie did better against Hillary but still trailed 45-37 nationally among all groups. Latin voters favored Hillary over Christie 62-23.
Paul Ryan didn't do any better against Hillary, losing 50-38 in an overall matchup and even worse with Latin voters, 69-21.
Before you Democrats get too excited about this, Hillary running is still a long shot by my estimation. She'd be 69 on election day making her the oldest person in history elected president. Ronald Reagan was 68.
