AND IT IS TRAGIC FOR HOPEFUL AMERICA..

Cruz wins caucus states. Just like Bernie does.

Cruz DID win his home state of TX, as expected, but by less than 50%.

Look for Trump to do well in the next two rounds of primaries. If he takes Mich, Ohio and Fla, it's all over.

Trump will do a lot better in the delegate winner take all states most or all which don't favor Cruz.
I agree with you, but if the next week or two the scales keep tipping you may see more anti Trump voters run to Cruz. Logically it appear Trump is going to gain a lot of delegates in the next 4 weeks or so. But it still remains whether he can begin to get enough to prevent a brokered convention.

No one really knows how many votes Carson lost or what really went on that night. Cruz apologized, Carson, who has class accepted the apology, That should be the end of it. I would take Cruz over Trump any day though I do not like him. He is to far to the right for me. We do have to look at it this way though, the republicans have been begging for a true conservative and that is what Cruz is.

I wish this is true because it is a loud voice from a certain segment of the population but the loud voice is getting a little bit bigger. That said, it has to happen in the right states. As I stated before, even with Florida, Ohio and Virginia going red, that still wouldn't be enough for Trump to win, 272-266.

If anything over exposure could be hurting him. The more he is questioned, the more his ideas are shoot with holes.

I do think we need to not jump to conclusions right now and wait and see. This thing is nowhere near over. I do think it is looking more and more like a brokered convention, but it is even to early to say that.

There is No doubt Trump is Losing momentum, Miss Nikita.

He lost 2 states he was favored to win, last night. And Trump barely edged Cruz in Kentucky and Louisanna.

NOT LOOKING VERY STRONG for Trump as the Train Rolls down bumpy tracks.

Probably the first and last time I agree with you.

Either that or something was awfully wrong with the polls.

I'm still perplexed by this post of yours:

Cruz got the support of the conservative talk radio and the religious right in the South. The South was his firewall and lets look at the results:


South Carolina: Lost
Georgia: Lost
Alabama: Lost
Arkansas: Lost
Kentucky: Lost
Louisiana: Lost
Tennessee: Lost
Texas (home state) won
Oklahoma: won
Kansas: won


He went 3 out of 10 in the South.......we still got North Carolina and Mississippi which are primaries not caucuses and are open to independents and Democrats. So at the end Cruz will get 3 out of 13 in the South.

then it shifts to states that are not very good for Cruz.



Cruz didn't do well in the South.......he had to sweep the South to have any chance for the nomination and he only will get 3 states? that's bad. Rubio did the worst that's why Cruz failings in the South is not getting proper attention.

Cruz is DANGEROUS, Miss Nikita. He is a bogus, Dirty Liar, proven. His staffers put out False propaganda LIES the that cost Carson and Trump Severely in Iowa. Namely, False "Voter Violation" fraud Lie, which scared many voters and caused them to change votes. Cruz ran from accepting responsibility for his staffer, Bob Vander Plaats, putting out that "Voter Violation" fabricated LIE, when Chris Wallace grilled him about it, on FOXNEWS SUNDAY.
CRUZ was silent...with a blank look on his creepy face.

CRUZ IS A FALSE PROPHET....HAS DECEIVED MANY.

I think he's kinda like a drunk at a party, at first he may seem amusing, as time goes on people realize he's really just annoying and eagerly look forward to him leaving the party.

I disagree, Trump had 2 bad weeks with the liberal media and newspapers declaring war on him and then the GOP establishment throwing everything at him including the kitchen sink.

Trump does better in primaries than caucuses because Cruz has the better ground work for caucuses just like Bernie for the democrats.


out of 12 primaries so far that most have been in the South which is Cruz firewall......Trump has won 10.


Now this will shift to states friendly to Trump.




Bernie won 2 states last night to Hillarys 1 state and I didn't hear the media say anything........because to win the nomination you have to win primaries not just caucuses.
