The bad polling results in his home state keep piling up for Sen. Ted Cruz (TP-Texas). A SurveyUSA poll conducted for WFAA-TV in Dallas released on Wednesday shows Cruz and Donald Trump tied at 32% among likely and actual GOP primary voters. The poll was taken after the South Carolina primary but before the results of the Nevada caucuses were known. Cruz continues to poll well with self-described “very conservative” voters but is a walking disaster with moderates – getting on 18% support from that group.
In a very sick way, Red would like to see Cruz nominated because he believes that the Tea Party firebrand would go down in flames in a general election and likely never be heard from again as a serious candidate for president. But even a remote chance of a Cruz victory is much too dangerous for this country. However, if Cruz loses this go round, we undoubtedly have not heard the last from him. That is, unless somehow Texas miraculously wakes up and boots him out of the Senate in 2018. Not holding Red’s breath.
