Our take: Despite current polls showing voters think President Obama is more "likable" than Romney, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio thinks those numbers will begin to change soon. John O'Connor, a Tampa-based reporter for StateImpact Florida, a reporting project of local media and NPR, reported from the Republican National Convention Tuesday:

"Florida Sen. Marco Rubio says America will have a different view of Mitt Romney by the time he accepts the Republican nomination for president.

"Rubio will introduce Romney on Thursday, the final night of the Republican National Convention. He may have provided a preview of his speech to a gathering of Florida delegates Tuesday."
