Talk:2016 presidential election
He is clearly eligible under both the 14th amendment and the 2011 finding of the Congressional Research Service. Under the arguments frequently given by people claiming Rubio to be ineligible(namely, that his parents were not US citizens when he was born), this would also mean that the first 7 Presidents of the United States were also ineligible as either they or their parents were British subjects at the time of their birth. Martin Van Buren being the first President to actually be born a US citizen by the standards laid out by these detractors. Fnarrow 00:55, 3 May 2013 (EDT)

Where is Mike Huckabee?
He should be included in this list. A socially conservative protestant who lowers taxes.
Surely Ohio governor (and National Review favorite) John Kasich belongs on a list like this. Whoever is at the top of the ticket, Ohio is a must-win state, which makes Kasich a logical choice for veep. PeterKa 21:54, 25 March 2015 (EDT)
Rubio popularity in Florida
I think his popularity in Florida and his ability to win the state are exaggerated here. His approval ratings in Florida have never been high. I can't say I know a single person here, on either side of the aisle, who approves of his record. It may give him leverage, but not much. Also, polls show that he doesn't have the support of Hispanic or Cuban groups in the state. ScottH35 18:00, 13 April 2015 (EDT)
