9:07 am
it is up to the voters to turn up and vote. if we have a big vote in south florida, we will win the state. i am very confident in that. we see that internally, in all the analysis we have done, if we have a higher than normal turn out in south florida, we will win this election. >> is it hard for you to justify maybe donors and voters saying, we are looking at tols and they-- polls and they are showing something different. >> no, polling is out of control, done in ways not scientifically solid. bernie sanders trailed in every poll in michigan, the average-- he was trailing by 20 points in michigan, in a single poll not showing him win and then beats hillary clinton in michigan. i cause down 20 in virginia and won by a point to donald trump. if we had more one day i think we would have won, we still had 16 delegates, he got 17. my point is polling is skewed now with cell phones and all the things going on, you have to put those aside and understand that
9:08 am
they used to be and more often wrong than rieth. donors and supporters know that. >> the polling has gotten out of control, some would argue the campaign in general is outlet of control, off the rails at some point. do you have any regrets about any of the negative back and forth that you have been a part of? and on the receiving end? >> i haven't been a part of it except one time, one day. i already said i would do it differently. that is one day. donald trump has done it for 12 months, that is not even fair comparison. i thing it is destructive. we are now a country where people are at each other's throat. just because you disgree on public policy, people hate each other, you have seen violence breaking out at rallies, not good for america, if we are not a country that can have a respectful debate about tax policy and health care policy, we are in a lot of trouble. how will we solve these problems? we need to start solving problems, we are running out of time or will be the first americans to leave our children worse off than ourselves.
9:09 am
kidvise a chance to be the freeest and most prosperous that is ever lived. >> how can this party unite? going into general election, no matter the nominee, do you see unification in the cycle? >> i thing it depends on the nom. i know i can unite the party and i am doing it in many ways. i don't think we will unite behind donald trump. there is a sersage of republicans that will-- percentage of republicans that will never vote for him. i know people are watching, really angry, think voting for donald trump will send a message. it might, but ultimately in november we will lose and the message you will be left with is president hillary clinton, and if you are a republican, i doubt that is what you want. >> a grueling process, you have been all over the country talking with hundreds of thousands of people, no doubt. in this process what have you learned most about yourself? >> i don't know about myself, i
9:10 am
such little sleep, but i learned a bout the country. america is not a government, it is a people, we have a government and our gum is broken but -- government is broken but our country is still great. we have problems but if we fix them we will be greater than we have ever been. if we don't, we will be the first generation leaving kids worse off. i know we will do the right things, this campaign has increased my faith in the american people. no matter what happened at the end of the day, we will do the right thing and we will get this country right again. >> senator marco rubio, thanks for being with us, have a great day. >> on the democrat side, hillary clinton will hold a primary night event in west palm beach tonight, monday she was in north carolina and chicago holding a rally at a union facility. illinois is a state where recent polls show she is trailing sanders. hillary leads sanders by a wide
