CNN poll: Rubio is top pick for VP



cnnpoll.jpgFlorida Sen. Marco Rubio is once again the crowd favorite.

A CNN poll released today showed Republicans want Mitt Romney to pick Rubio as his VP. Rubio got 28 percent of the vote, followed by Chris Christie and Paul Ryan, both at 16 percent, and Bobby Jindal at 8 percent.

Rob Portman? He's way down at 6 percent. Tim Pawlenty hobbled in with 4 percent.

Romney told NBC Thursday that he'll pick a person with a "strength of character, a vision for the country that adds something to the political discourse about the direction of the country."
