I think I might have until the GOP decided to become cannibals.

Now I won't under any circumstances.

Cruz fake?

He has done everything he campaigned to get the office he holds now.
He is the only one, that has talked the talk of Constitutional Conservatism, and then walked the walk to accomplish it... Look, there are no establishment hounds, hounding the Conservative voters for trying to label a Progressive, Conservative. Ron Paul Revolution Continues.

There's an uncanny resemblance there.
Ol' Joe was known to hit the bottle pretty heavily. Not sure if he visited Cuba back in the 50s, but it wouldn't surprise me. Havana was a kickin' tourist spot before Castro & Co turned it into a memory.

Unfortunately Cruz is in no way fit to hold the office of President. He is highly intelligent but his smooth delivery conceals a hatred of those who don't concur with his views (which coincide closely with the First Baptist Church of Houston)

-He thinks gay marriage means the end of America (he is an end of times type of guy)
-He will do whatever it takes to overturn abortion rights in the US
Seriously the above two issues are at the top of his agenda to oppose (unlike most Americans)
-He is bellicose and and belligerent - he challenged the sitting president to a fight, he openly supports attacking countries that criticize the US overseas
-He thinks little of his fellow Republicans and less of the Democrats (he is a divider not a uniter nor a pragmatist).

He can't win. The election will be decided in swing states - he has no support outside his core conservative constituencies (read religious states). He is not going to win in OH, FL, VA, CO, etc.

And it's pretty clear that "establishment" Republican voters aren't running the show this time around. If they do decide to sit out the election, who cares? There are more than enough disaffected Dems to take their place.
Another Trump apologist making up his own reality as he goes again....

Let's just assume for a second your premise is accurate, the real question isn't "how many disaffected dems he'll bring in " ( which are probably few and far between ) the real question is, if Trump is the nominee, how many disaffected Republicans will vote Dem or just stay home? I know Trump apologists are mathematically challenged, so here's a hint to help you along, the former has to be a greater number than the latter to gain a net positive.

You better just face it, you are inextricably tied to the approval of the "establishment" that you hate so much. You are too small a minority to accomplish anything without them.

I don't think Cruz or Rubio will be acceptable to Donald Trump if he is sidetracked at the convention. He would rather see Hillary Clinton win. He would be nuts to endorse her but a third party run would be the same thing. He is not a conservative or a bible thumper but is a pragmatist and would enjoy the ego trip of ruining the GOP's chances if they screw him over. He is vengeful as we have seen with the media and others. Many of his supporters would follow him into the Trump party.

Default Crazy Cruz

I agree 100% if Ted Cruz wins the nomination I will vote for a Democrat and I can honestly say that I have never voted for a Democrat in my 53 years of life, I don,t trust that man as far as I can throw him.
