This could be a long week for Senator Ted Cruz who has bet his campaign on winning Indiana on Tuesday. His long-shot attempt to reinvigorate his campaign by naming Carly Fiorina as his running mate flopped and now he is trailing Trump in recent polls.
He was met by Trump supporters chanting “Lying Ted” and when he went over to shake hands and talk to them – a strong move on his part – he was confronted by a man holding a Trump sign who told him it’s time to get out of the race and asked if he could do math. While some true believers thrill to see Cruz challenge Trump most voters are getting tired of the primaries and just see a guy who is a distant second who can’t come to grips with reality. And they want Republicans to unite and focus on Hillary.
Here’s the confrontation:
Conservative elites may be more interested in stopping Trump, but most Republicans are smart enough to see Hillary as the real threat to their liberty and way of life.
