Cruz has over 7 million votes, hardly insignificant. Its only 3 million less than Trump has. Bernie has 3 million less than Hillary and people swear he's doing amazing.

70 percent of voters were against Cruz, so Cruz absolutely should have gotten the nomination

Of those 16 "seasoned" candidates, five dropped out before the primaries even began, and six more combined for 233k votes. Take those votes plus Jeb's (279k), give them to Trump, and he still trails Hillary in total votes.

Gump = weakest GOP nominee in 40 years.

No problem. Tell the democrats you support that, and let them know they won't need to show up at the voting booth for the election. No point of them going out of their way and wasting time. Most can stay home and that is no problem.

Comical isn't it? Trumpettes laughed at the other GOP candidates calling them weak losers who couldn't even get 1% of the vote. Then when someone questions why Trump only has 40% support and 11 million total votes, its because he was facing very stiff competition from 16 strong candidates! LMAO!!!! They contradict themselves almost as much as their leader.
