He offered to give up his primetime slot guaranteed to -- -- Romney but Mitt Romney asked him to keep his speaking role so what can we expect to hear from senator Marco Rubio speaks speech.
The Florida senator joins us now live from Miami good way to send him.
I know that you were originally going to be here -- right now open of course you have constituents and family.
Down south in the state of Florida how are the conditions there and when -- be coming up here.
They're getting better we dodged the bullet big time and so we're hopefully going to be driving up today you know the flights have been canceled so we're gonna make the drive up four hours.
In the car with the -- my kid that should be a lot of fun.
I want -- have been there done that -- Yeah black dad are we there yet.
Hey how wasn't looking for.
Your guy mr.
Romney right now there's a new Washington Post poll that came out this morning shows Romney up by wind over Barack Obama how do you think things are gone.
I think they're gonna get better look at what's happening throughout the -- people living life you know but not a getting back to school to coming back home.
From their vacations in the starting to focus in on the choice before them and -- -- the next two weeks -- this convention.
And the Democrats next week -- become even more clear look this -- not a choice between a Democrat and a Republican.
We're voting on what kind of country we want to be in what we think government should be doing in our and our country and we have two very different views of that Brock Obama's view is that the way the economy grows -- because the government spends money and creates programs.
Mitt Romney believes that the way the economy grows as with someone people when people have the money and the confidence to invest that money to start a new business or grow an existing one.
At two very different views and Americans are gonna get to the side and I think that starts becoming clear this week.
Said is -- one of the -- the -- things you have to do is subtly use your popularity with the Tea Party but also let the static community know.
Republicans aren't all that bad so far it's overwhelmingly for President Obama.
68 to 23%.
How do you close that gap in 65 days.
Well I don't know about all those polls are out there I think that's the same things happening and Hispanic community it's happening throughout the country you know and that is people just aren't focused -- -- but they will be now and I'll tell you what's happening in the Hispanic community it's what's happening.
It's people that are afraid about the future they've lost their jobs they're working twice as hard and making half as much their kids are graduating college and they can't find a job but they're stuck with student loans and -- to move back in with their parents this is real life.
And I think Barack Obama's gonna be held to account for that he's gonna have to explain to all Americans including Americans of Hispanic descent.
Why things have not gotten better despite the fact that he's gotten everything he's asked for.
And and that's why I think Mitt Romney's approach is going to be is gonna be more is gonna -- appeal to all Americans especially those of Hispanic descent.
-- with senator some of that could be from the messaging of people here from the media check out these numbers from a Fox News poll who most members of the media want to win the election.
Just regular people said 61%.
Of the media.
Wants Obama to win only 15% of the media according to Americans want Romney to win 17% are unsure.
You probably knew this going into this but to the number surprise.
Well I think that's perception at the end of the day most journalists I deal with our our fair they may have personal preferences but they try to be accurate and -- try to -- both sides for the most part.
The folks that I dealt with -- there are those who are partisan and identified themselves such and there's no doubt about them but here's the good news it doesn't really matter.
Because Americans today have access to more information than ever before.
This is not we're not at the air where there were in there was no FOX & Friends.
Thirty years ago 25 years ago you got your news from three places.
And now people really have choices and they have fair and balanced coverage including this network and -- so so -- -- absolutely won't.
Are more -- -- ever been.
But one of the things and people always say about the present United States well you know he always winds electability there been so many negative -- senator coming from.
Obama side I had a couple of people tell me the airport we don't think he's a likable anymore.
-- -- -- that there is a different Barack Obama Barack Obama 2.0.
Is not the same person who was elected four years ago you know four years ago I know people would never voted for a Democrat.
That voted for him because they love this story and it felt you know what we -- out of view them on everything but he's gonna elevate American politics for those days are long gone.
I mean his this is as ugly and as nasty as I have seen a political campaigns in the last you know six cycles I've been involved in -- -- All right well good luck with your speech we'll look forward to seeing you when you make your way up north here to Tampa -- good luck connect Carmen atmospheric.
He was penitent.
The -- and -- -- -- kids pay attention on day.
