7:55 am
so you don't know until the day happens. look at what happened in michigan. bernie sanders was down 20 points to hillary clinton the day before heading into michigan and ended up pulling out a victory. that's the only caveat. i say it does not look great for the marco rubio team heading into tomorrow. >> you heard him say a couple of times that he is not going to rerun for the senate seat. if he doesn't end up winning florida, what happens to rubio. what do the pundits say? >> reporter: i don't know. he obviously would be considered for a ticketer or could be considered for some other position. he's obviously shown himself to be a great communicator. and minus one debate in new hampshire he has performed well on the debate stage. i am sure that the future is bright for marco rubio if he
7:56 am
the big question is if governor kasich can win ohio. if he can do that, it's a little tougher for donald trump's path to get to 12. 12. 37, the number needed. >> how is kasich polling? >> about even. maybe up a couple of points on average in polls. and donald trump is there campaigning today. and today john john kasich is in ohio, as he has been in last couple of weeks. paining with mitt -- campaigning with mitt romney, the last republican nominee. i think it comes down to 9 wire. but a sitting governor will help him. >> amy: always a pleasure. we'll talk to you later. all new at 8:00, the zika virus is scaring people into canceling vacations to places where it's not even an issue.
