Marco Rubio Tops Vice Presidential Poll

Marco Rubio has certainly been mentioned several times by Republican candidates as a possible running mate, and it appears that GOP voters agree. Fairleigh Dickinson University released the findings of a poll today in which they asked 799 registered Republicans across the country who they'd like to see be their party's VP. However no options were provided. Turns out Marco Rubio was mentioned more than several other high profile Republicans.

Rubio got 66 mentions, which is pretty impressive considering the options were virtually limitless. Rick Santorum, who's currently leading GOP presidential primary polls, came in second with 56. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was third. Sarah Palin was fourth.

The result is stunning considering Rubio has only been on the national stage for less than two years. Then again, the fact that several actual candidates, not to mention a small army of talking heads and pundits, have mentioned Rubio as a possible VP candidate certainly helped his showing.

One major problem though: Rubio has said they he has no interest in running for VP this year.
