If Marco Rubio drops in the polls in New England, it may not be a response to his performance in Wednesday's Republican presidential debate.
The U.S. senator from Florida, naturally a Miami Dolphins fan, busted out the needle at a time when Patriots fans are more than a little tired of Deflategate jokes.
Going into Thursday's game, just four days after beating the Jets, the Patriots are undefeated. The 'Fins are just 3-3. And Rubio is polling at eight percent nationally among Republican primary voters.
