Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday shows the depth of how much of a lesser-of-two-evils election this year's presidential race is.

Nearly two-thirds of those who said they were voting for Republican candidate Donald Trump said their motivation had more to do with making sure that Democrat Hillary Clinton doesn't get into the White House. Only 25 percent said their vote was pro-Trump rather than anti-Clinton.

Florida Republican Marco Rubio is now running for the Senate seat he was prepared to give up — until his presidential aspirations were derailed by New York billionaire Donald Trump.  

While announcing his bid for a second term on Wednesday, Rubio acknowledged his frustration with the Senate and the gridlock he’s found there. But he said he also sees the chamber as an important check against abuses by the executive branch. "No matter who wins the White House, we need a strong group of principled, persuasive leaders in Congress who will not only advance limited government, free enterprise and a strong national defense, but also explain to Americans how it makes life better for them and their families," Rubio said in a statement. "I ultimately changed my mind about this race because on that front, and in that fight, I believe I have something to offer."
