Rubio hasnt been "vocal about war", he's been vocal about opposing appeasement and  joke foreign policy.
Yes he has. He's a hispanic John Mccain slightly better on economic issues.

Republicans lose the midterm advantage that they had in 2010 and 2014. Many House seats that the Republicans won in 2010 become vulnerable if the President is at all unpopular. An R+5 seat will be vulnerable with an unpopular Republican President -- maybe someone who takes extreme positions.

Count on Democratic-friendly media turning upon the Republican President, especially if the President is seen as extreme. What Republican-leaning media did to Obama, Democrats will do to a Republican President.

To the Republicans' advantage, there just aren't many R Senate seats in play. Democrats would have to get their gains in the South, which implies reversing a 40-year trend quickly.

The Republicans really don't have a New Ronald Reagan capable of winning over 'shaky' Democrats.
