NOW THEY'RE JUST MESSING WITH HIM:

Democratic insiders say they would love to face Trump or Carson - but not Rubio (Associated Press, 14 November 2015)

The Associated Press contacted all 712 superdelegates to the Democratic National Convention next summer, and asked them which Republican they thought would be their party's strongest opponent in the general election.

Offering a window into how the Democratic establishment is sizing up the competition, most superdelegates declined to name a candidate, expressing bewilderment at a Republican field in which billionaire Trump and retired neurosurgeon Carson are leading in polls while Jeb Bush, the son and brother of presidents, struggles.

Of the 176 superdelegates who answered the question, 65 said Rubio, the first-term senator from Florida, would be the Democrats' strongest opponent.

"Rubio speaks well and he could generate appeal among Latino voters," said Chris Wicker, vice-chairman of the Nevada Democratic Party, referring to Rubio's background as a Cuban American raised by working-class parents. "He doesn't say some of the crazy stuff that the other leaders have said."
