Florida Sen. Marco Rubio predicted Tuesday that pollsters and networks are going to be "embarrassed" after he wins his home state's primary Tuesday night.
Rubio told Fox News on Tuesday morning that many polls throughout the 2016 cycle have been "horrifying" and off base, adding that networks will likely want their money back after a continued string of shoddy polls.
"I don't look at the numbers," Rubio told host Martha MacCallum. "I think a bunch of networks are going to have to ask their pollsters for their money back. Polls this election cycle are horrifying."
"Quite frankly, I think a lot of people are going to be embarrassed tonight and are going to want refunds from the money they spent on those polls because we're going to win Florida," Rubio said. "We feel very optimistic about that."
Since Super Tuesday, Rubio and his team have continued to predict victory in the Sunshine State to protect their home turf. Rubio has spent the vast majority of the last two weeks campaigning in his home state as he tries to stave off Donald Trump, who continues to lead in the state according to the latest polls.
But in the latest RealClearPolitics average, Trump leads Rubio by nearly 20 percent, 43 percent to 24.7 percent. Rubio also told MacCallum that he plans on continuing on no matter what happens in Florida, with him set to campaign in Arizona and Utah in the coming days.
