The Rubio Rescission

Back in 2012, after Barack Obama's reelection campaign was bolstered so heavily by the disproportionate support from the Hispanic community, I was fairly certain that, come 2016, we'd either see Marco Rubio heading the Republican ticket or at least being the running mate for the party's nominee. And while the second part is still a possibility, any notion of Rubio being the standard bearer is just wishful thinking (on his part). So what happened, exactly? How did a candidate who came into office with so much promise (the Obama comparisons were flying fast and furious for awhile there) end up being so much of a nothing when it came to actually running for the top job? Nate Silver has some suspicions.
