People would be far more likely to vote for someone who is too religious rather than a racist, sexist, narcissistic, megalomaniac fraud like Trump. That's why Trump loses pretty much every head to head poll against Hillary while Cruz wins nearly all of them.

There is only ONE poll that counts. And by my calculation, that has not been conducted as of yet.

and the polls have been right how often again?

maybe its time to stop with the polling and just let people vote.

that might work.

Why don't we just stop having elections all together?
He has not reached the magic number.

I can't figure out those polls either. I would think Hillary would trounce Cruz more than she would Trump.

Bottom line, even Republicans don't believe those head to head polls at this juncture.

It's a shame. I wouldn't mind seeing a conservative in the White House, but when no one decent shows up for the nomination who can rally the party base, they're going to lose every time. The media is partly to blame, for letting Trump steal the show.
Not really, they can still nominate Sanders. Sanders polls better than Hillary against Trump/Cruz.
