    It wasn’t long ago that conservative proponents of comprehensive immigration reform were insisting that the idea is popular among Republican voters. In 2014, the Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin told us, “nope, immigration reform [isn’t] toxic” and that “the anti-immigration forces are loud but in the distinct minority” within the Republican party. To be fair, Rubin and others of the same view backed up their claim with poll data, but they didn’t persuade me. I remembered how, during the 2012 primary season, Republican presidential candidates, whose polling operations have an enormous interest in being right, treated immigration reform as “toxic” indeed....

    Marco Rubio is a U.S. senator. And he just cant stand it anymore. I dont know that hate is the right word, Rubio said in an interview. Im frustrated. This year, as Rubio runs for president, he has cast the Senate the very place that cemented him as a national politician as a place hes given up on, after less than one term. Its too slow. Too rule-bound. So Rubio, 44, has decided not to run for his seat again. Its the White House or bust. Thats why Im missing votes. Because I am leaving the Senate. I...

    Marco Rubio once looked like the Republican savior over immigration. Now, to some conservatives, he seems as trustworthy as a door-to-door salesman. From the right-wing talk-show hosts to local activists at town halls, many conservatives say theyre upset that Rubios talk and deeds conflict over comprehensive immigration reform. The problem is he sold this based on talking points, said Jason Hoyt, an Orlando tea party activist, summing up the discomfort many conservatives have with the Florida Republican senator. He had four or five talking points, which sounded pretty good, Hoyt said. But then we saw the bill, and it was...
