Marco Rubio doesn't seem to know he's losing

Marco Rubio has won zero primary states so far. Donald Trump has so far won most of the states. Even Ted Cruz has won more than Rubio — with Iowa, Texas, and Oklahoma now under his belt.

If anything, Super Tuesday seems to have solidified Trump and Cruz's leads on Rubio.

Yet Rubio keeps claiming that he's somehow going to turn all of this around and win the nomination. In his speech on Tuesday, Rubio claimed:

Five days ago, we began to explain to the American people that Donald Trump is a con artist. And in just five days, we have seen the impact that it is having all across the country. We are seeing in state after state, he loves to talk about polls. We are seeing in state after state his numbers coming down, our numbers going up.

This was maybe credible a few weeks ago — when it looked like the establishment was rallying around Rubio. But Trump has won big in most states. And the polls still show that Trump has a big lead, even in Rubio's home state of Florida.

Yet in Rubio's world, down is up and up is down — and he's apparently still winning.
