Marco Rubio is putting all his campaign efforts into winning his home state of Florida. A loss would likely signal the end of his campaign.

Some early polls show he has narrowed Donald Trump’s lead. A recent poll conducted by The Ledger showed Trump with just a 6 percentage point lead on Rubio. Trump’s lead in Florida varies in recent polls.

We have seen a variation in primary results and early polling numbers. On the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders won Michigan despite trailing by as many as 20 percentage points in early polls.

The winner of Florida will win all 99 delegates.

Here’s a look at the latest Florida Republican polls.

The golden rule calls Kasich to return Rubio’s grace by asking his Florida supporters to vote for Rubio. Mr. Trump lacks the integrity to lead the world’s greatest nation
