“Romney’s smartest vice presidential choice would come from Florida, say an overwhelming number of more than 100 of Florida’s smartest politicos. It’s not Marco Rubio, however. It’s Jeb Bush,” Adam Smith reports in the Tampa Bay Times. “The ex-governor overwhelmingly topped the list in our latest Florida Insider Poll asking who would be the Mitt Romney’s best choice for vice president. Thirty six percent of our participants – and nearly 47 percent of Republicans – named Bush as the top pick, while 15 percent named Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, 12 percent named New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, and nearly 9 percent named Rubio. Among Republicans, Rubio and Christie tied with 8 percent.”
