Why should this surprise you? The mantra I always heard was "Republicans will eat their own!"

The GOP was very unfair to Trump. Yet he prevailed. This demonstrates his strength as a candidate and speaks greatly about how he will win the general election.

Contrast this to the DNC where Hillary Clintion has everything stacked in her favor by a similar crooked political establishment, and she is still losing to the communist. This demonstrates a weak & flawed candidate who will lose by a landslide when it gets hard in the general election.

All that the establishment cares about anymore is the establishment. It's not about the American people. Meanwhile, we still have a country to save from a deranged Democrat party and a "president" wishing to inflict harm and suffering on America (Remember, in January, he secretly snuck a bill past Congress giving him total authority to declare martial law at his own will and even in peace time). And what have the Republicans done lately? Nothing.

And the only person who can now save America? It's Trump.

dex - let's end this - you're just a sore loser. Cruz could have walked anytime and also ran as an independent - problem is - very few like him so he wouldn't win anyway. His only hope was a contested convention and even that fell short.

No, Trump should bend down on his knees and kiss Reince Priebus' feet for the party allowing him to run as a Republican. Donald's no more a Republican than Hillary is, and once in office Trumpeteers (the new Mouseketeers) will find out they've allowed themselves to be duped with campaign slogans, false promises, and then and only then will they also realize they've allowed themselves to ignore Trump's vile language and attacks against other candidates and women, much like the voters who ignored Obama;s racist comment about his own grandmother and white people in general with this ignorant statement: "My grandmother, a typical white person.", as he held his arrogant nose up in the air. How any decent person could vote for the man after that I don't know, and now we are witnessing the same phenomena with Trump. Our citizens have lost their moral compass, at least too many of them have, with devastating results.

Intelligent people voted for Cruz, those easily swayed by loud-mouthed rhetoric with very few details of his plans given voted for Trump. Our voters are pathetic.

How? How have they treated him any differently than they have any other NYC Liberal?

Everyone knows that was as phony as they come. Had he not done well, he would have switched and run as an independent. I think most people knew this from day one.

I do have to wonder why any of this makes a difference to you? You have said you are an independent, not a Republican. Of course a good number of his supporters are not really Republicans. I don't know how anyone can even consider supporting a candidate for President that has never served in a single elected position nor served in the military.

GOP thinks Trump is stupid because he is. He has stated it numberous. He said he wants to appear stupid so he will seem relatable.
