Marco Rubio hasn't run an ad with him posing next to Kim Davis, but don't put it past him.

The anti-gay Christian persecution complex is in full display in a recent ad for GOP presidential hopeful Marco Rubio, who is apparently hoping to snag some of the anti-gay evangelical vote away from contenders Ted Cruz and Ben Carson.

"This election is about the essence of America," an earnest Rubio says to the camera. "About all of us who feel out of place in our country. A government incredibly out of touch and millions with traditional values branded bigots and haters."

Rubio, received a dismal score of 22 from the Human Rights Campaign for his voting record on key issues that face the LGBT population. He opposed non-discrimination protections in the workplace and schools, and is against anti-bullying legislation. He recently vowed, if elected to overturn the recent Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage by putting more conservative justices on the bench.

According to a recent Real Clear Politics aggregate of seven national polls, Rubio places third with 12.6 percent of the vote. Ahead of him are Ted Cruz with 16.1 percent and frontrunner Donald Trump with 33 percent.
