Sen. Ted “Canadian Bacon” Cruz (TP-Texas) has practically fallen over himself in his attempts to alternately praise and avoid criticizing Donald Trump. One might think that Cruz was positioning for a Vice-Presidential nod from the Grand Old Party, but that clearly is not his style. And anyone willing to take the firebrand Cruz on as a second banana certainly gets what he deserves.
But a new poll commissioned by a group called the Texas Bipartisan Justice Committee shows that Trump is eating at Cruz’s house. The Florida-based Gravis Marketing firm conducted the poll. And it’s really bad news for TC. In June, Cruz sat at 20% in the Texas Politics Project poll. Now Trump is at 24%, while Cruz is 8 points back with 16%. What will Ted do?
It’s even worse for JEB!!!!$$$$$? who is in 4th place with 9% behind a guy whose brother and father didn’t pave the way to the White House for him. Meanwhile Rick Perry’s flagging hopes took another hit. In June, Perry was a respectable second with 12%. He now polls at 4% in the state that he ruled for 14 years. It now seems only a matter of time until the fat lady serenades Rick with a rousing “Adios Mofo.”
