No. (Highly unlikely, anyway).
Could this be a reason he's not performing well?
Will spiders crawl a site that has no robots.txt?

Yep they will spider, they will also appear as a failed filed request in your stats, I am forever having to put robots.txt in after getting a gentle reminder from the failed request stats

As Alan said, the robots.txt file or the absence of it is not going to negatively affect positioning efforts. There are many factors that could cause one to not have good positioning. Maybe they are going after key phrases that are too competitive? Maybe they do not have good overall search engine saturation? Maybe their content is not properly optimized to reflect the keywords they do want to target? I'd be looking at these and other factors.
Robots.txt is really about "what not to allow" rather than what to allow.

His targeted keywords are extremely competitive, so I will focus on placing keywords throughout his text.
And thanks for the warm welcome!
