Incredible – Amazing – Almost, Well, Unbelievable: Ted Cruz Skyrockets With Massive Surge In New Iowa Poll…

Three Strikes and You’re Out !

Hey, wait a minute… Déjà vu all over again?  LOL – Didn’t we write that exact headline a month ago?  Why, yes, yes actually we did.  And yes, actually it was written for the exact same reason.  – SEE HERE

The exact same pollster “Patrick Murray“, with the exact same polling outfit “Monmouth University”, who conducted the only previous poll to showcase a “surging Ben Carson”, at the exact same time frame (week before debate), who did this twice, has published another, well, almost identical poll, this time for Ted Cruz. Strong in the fail is Mr. Murray.

Iowa monmouth poll 12-7-15

Now, to fully understand how agenda-driven this pollster is you have to consider: Not only did Mr. Murray present the ONLY poll showing Ben Carson surging in South Carolina, but he’s also the ONLY pollster to previously show Ben Carson with a massive lead in Iowa.

But wait, it gets better.  Murray also presented each of his prior agenda-polls, at the exact same moment in time:  One week before GOP debate #2, and one week before GOP debate #3.  Noticing a pattern?

“yer, outta here like a fat kid in dodge ball”.

This was soooo entirely predictable that a few days ago I told a good cyber friend of the Tree House, who is a great advocate for Ted Cruz, to expect Mr. Murray to work the media narrative on behalf of the political machine.  Yes, we told him to specifically expect this poll today, specifically from this pollster, and specifically with this outcome.

Why?  Because the larger agenda doesn’t change – only the approach. And we are doing all we can to help remove the cloud of disinformation that circulates all things recently political.

….Remove Donald Trump – THEN Ben Carson becomes Herman Cain, Ted Cruz becomes Newt Gingrich, and Jeb/Marco stroll along to the nomination just like Mitt Romney in 2012….

Yes, it really is that simple.

It is specifically because the media control of the narrative carries so much predictable bullshit the CTH specializes in going well behind the political-agenda curtain.

Unfortunately for Mr Murray, and even worse for Cruz supporters, CNN/ORC conducted a poll at the same time and found a completely divergent outcome – which they also released today.

          • Hi, Don:
            The problem is that the GOP IS hard at work, manipulating Jeb’s numbers. That’s why he’s at 3% instead of 1%. Lol.

            As far as Rubio goes, the GOP doesn’t really care about Rubio’s numbers right now because he’ll never be a real threat to who THEY want…which is Jeb Bush. And Rubio is easy enough to get rid of, if they have to.

            As long as JEB doesn’t drop out…and I’m sure the GOP has told him to stay in the race, no matter what…the GOP holds on to the hope that if they can get rid of Trump, they can then get rid of Cruz and Carson. THEN they can REALLY start manipulating the poll numbers, and artificially put Jeb into First Place, saying that the Trump, Cruz and Carson supporters are now supporting BUSH!. Such an easy and simple lie…oops…I mean “explanation” for why Bush’s poll numbers “increased”.

            Then, just like in the past, the GOP will tell Republican voters “the Dems will win if you don’t vote for whoever the Republican nominee is!” And the GOP expects to be listened to…again!

            Up to now most voters have been pretty easy to lead because they’ve been well-indoctrinated to believe whatever the GOP and the liberal news media tells them. And nobody wants to lose.

            But now the GOP is being “warned” by the thousands upon thousands of Americans flocking to Trump’s speeches that we are DONE with “politics as usual” and with listening to the GOP!

            We aren’t going to take it anymore!

          • While I support TRUMP completely, I don’t see Cruz as being one who will vote “anti-American” and “has anti-American positions”.

            Has Cruz always voted the way I want? No, not always…but most of the time, yes.

            Has he stood up to the RINOS in the Senate whenever they’ve wanted to pass unconstitutional bills and the like? YES, HE HAS. We’ve all seen him do this.

            You know, when Herman Cain was running for President back in 2012, he said something I never forgot:

             You'll NEVER find a candidate with whom you can agree 100%.  But if you can agree with him or her 7 out of 10 times on the important issues, then that's the candidate you should support.
            

            Cruz hits that “7 out of 10” criteria for me. That’s why he’s my second choice.

            Thankfully, though, TRUMP HITS 10 TO 10 FOR ME! 🙂

            Having lived in the M.E. and working/living amongst them here in the U.S. (O.C., CA), they only respect strength. The Islamists ‘moderates included’ are intent on the absolute crushing and destruction of our nation, our people and our way of life.

            Trump is right. I am frankly tired of the liberal PC cow-towing to the muzzies in America. We are going the way of Europe with degradation of free speech that only serves to perpetuate the myth that Islamist ideology can be defeated only if we are sensitive to their concerns.

            Our leaders are foolish if they think they can “contain” the beast they’ve created. IF NOT STOPPED, the political and globalist class will bring our country to its knees through their immigration policy and Cloward and Pivon (divide and conquer) strategy that is successfully promulgated on social media by nefarious groups representing themselves as ‘real’ Annons and BLM (for example), but who are in fact syndicates lead by SOROS and other globalists organizations. All of these groups are currently aligning with radical Muslims in the U.S. in preparation for an open revolution – our “American Spring” -God Help Us

            If your friend and others like him know what’s good for them, they’ll vote for Trump.

          Meanwhile US dicking around making it about campaigning? US is in real trouble. They are already marching with their ISIS and other terrorist flags at a rally in Dearborn Michigan. US border has been porous for YEARS. They are already here in this country and unlike Europe, they have free access to guns and everything else. Then we have Obama using CODE WORD “ISIL” total mating call to let them all know he’s on THEIR side.

          The real question is how many iSLAMic attacks will transpire between now and the election?

        On the one hand, if we said we are at war with the Islamic State, it would give them some validation as an entity. Feelings are against it, we want to deny them a state. On the other hand, if we did say they are a state, then we can fight them wherever they advance. We would necessarily have to be allied in some sense with Syria since ISIS is there so much.

        • IMO, our country is being run by fools and traitors.

          Obama wants all who are on the “No Fly” lists to not be able to have guns. BUT he fails to state that a lot of the names on these lists are INCORRECT and belong to American citizens who have NEVER had any ties with any terrorist organization or group.

          For cryin’ out loud, there have been BABIES AND LITTLE CHILDREN whose names have somehow gotten onto the list!

          And if you’re a Muslim woman, clothed head to toe in a black “lawn bag”, you are free from being searched!

          Also, people like Farook and his Pakistani wife, Tasheen Malik, can be already married for one year before applying for a FIANCE visa (illegal for her to receive)…can receive this fiance visa because she applied THROUGH AN EMBASSY which means no background check would be done…and then can fly right on in to our country (where the FBI LATER DID A BACKGROUND CHECK ON HER AND THEN ISSUED HER A GREEN CARD!)

          What kind of insanity is all of this??!!

          Even more importantly, what kind of VETTING PROCESS is the FBI doing…because it’s obviously NOT WORKING!!

          And then there’s those “refugees” who get into our country who suddenly disappear off the “radar” and nobody can find them.

          Trump is right!! Close our borders and stop all immigration by Muslims into our country until we know what we’re dealing with!

          And let’s make sure it’s TRUMP’S administration that gives us the “All Clear” and NOT OBAMA’S!!

To my knowledge he’s never won any sort of victory against these people. And I do not expect him to, given he’s backed by the same sources of money.

I was immediately suspicious, since Downhill is owned by Salem, the article’s writer was in-house Trump-basher Guy Benson, and Monmouth being the source tipped me off that not all was kosher. Of course, this is why.

    Thanks again for your service, Sundance and Treepers. I’ve been lurking here for a few weeks, as you guys consistently provide the most accurate analyses. I went from considering Trump a mildly crazy option to being fully onboard the Trump train after reading your GOPe expose.

    Is Trump even going to the debate? I thought he told the network he’d only debate if they donated $$ to a fund for verterns? If he says no to the debate(after all they are worthless) that would be real news, not this cockamamie poll. I’d love to see him hold a one hour national townhall meeting via satellite tv, let citizens from around the country ask him questions after his speech. He’d completely blow out the tv ratings.

      He said he’s going, people would call him a coward. And admitted he didn’t have the leverage he would have liked. But truly the path opens up for him, since then the Christmas Massacre lets him talk about national security! which is the #1 issue. And he can say he was out in front because it all ties to immigration.

    I actually saw a Carson 2016 bumper sticker the other day (in Iowa). He will probably change it to Cruz now. I don’t really run into Trump supporters. It is almost scary to bring Trump up. I get such unpleasant interactions with people just mentioning him. I would guess that is true for anyone. I think the true support is pretty large, but it isn’t like saying Carson, Cruz, Clinton or Sanders. No one is going to attack you for that. I had a guy try to grab my Trump hat away from me the other day. If he didn’t stop I would have had to get a little physical. And the look on his face was like instant rage. No kidding.

      We both work in our home. I hope my friends don’t talk crap behind our backs. I hope they are proud neither of us are mopping floors. Not that there is anything wrong with mopping floors, either. If Mrs. Cruz mopped floors we’d probably have something to say about that, too.

    The Monmouth pole seems to mostly target Evangelical Christians who caucused in the past. The poll probably asks if you voted last time and what religion you are and then keeps or denies you polling any farther.

    This tactic done buy bad pollsters explains why Carson was up over Trump in his Iowa poll last time. Soft spoken Carson was the Evangelical go to person at that time. Now Cruz is their fall back person after Carson showed he cannot deal with economics and international affairs.

    With the lead in questions above it is so easy to target your poll to what you desire.
    I am from Iowa and have talked to a number of Evangelicals over the last few months and they were mostly for Carson and now have moved on to Cruz but some are gradually starting to see Trump as OK. But at heart many Evangelicals are passive people and so prefer quieter people usually. But Trump now getting 18% of Evangelicals versus 30% for Cruz. So there is movement there in Trump’s way for Evangelicals.

    –> The other thing is that Trump will get many new voters to the caucuses. That cannot be reflected accurately in the polls. Many just did not vote in caucus before as they did not see the need. That is changing and should favor Trump at the caucus voting over these corrupt polls. Plus Trump may get some Democrat cross-overs to caucus Republican. You can quickly change your party affiliation.

    • Although they sound a bit clueless with their considering Rubio, there is a lot of concern by Evangelical leaders that Cruz will have problems winning a general election.

      SNIPET:
      “Conservative Titans Meeting Today to Discuss 2016 Endorsement”

      Many in Perkins’s cabal consider Cruz to be the most ideologically pure, but some have expressed doubts about his general-election viability. This, coupled with the rise of Marco Rubio — whom many view fondly despite his immigration push, and who has shown the potential for consolidating support among the party’s establishment wing — had caused some conservatives to argue for pausing the conversations about a mass endorsement, and others to abandon them altogether.

      Still, with every Muslim attack and more info coming out about the 2 current iSLAMic attacks (Paris & California), we can be sure Trump will trump both Rubio and Cruz. People want to FEEL SAFE. And neither Cruz nor Rubio has given us any inclination they would be able to keep Americans safe. In fact, both candidates’ foreign policies guarantee WWII with their Russia bashing and war mongering.

      Meanwhile, Evangelicals dick around about their “ideologies” and who’d be the “best pastor,” or “who’s never been divorced,” or who is “best looking.” We can blame them for their horrible choices in the past and for letting Obama get elected the first time. The truth is that these listed in this article are not all of the evangelicals, we must keep in mind and can rest assured that Trump has a large portion of evangelicals too, in Iowa too.

    Just an aside. Thought folks might this useful.

    A dictionary definition for Natural-Born citizen.

    http://webstersdictionary1828….

    NATURAL, noun

    A native; an original inhabitant.

    http://webstersdictionary1828….

    Born

    BORN, participle passive of bear. baurn. Brought forth, as an animal. A very useful distinction is observed by good authors, who, in the sense of produced or brought forth, write this word born; but in the sense of carried, write it borne. This difference of orthography renders obvious the difference of pronunciation.

    To be born is to be produced or brought into life. ‘Man is born to trouble.’ A man born a prince or a beggar. It is followed by of, before the mother or ancestors.

    Man that is born of woman is of few days and full of trouble. Job 14:1.

    To be born or born again, is to be regenerated and renewed; to receive spiritual life. John 3:3.

    http://webstersdictionary1828….

      I just checked out this thread to see who would do it this time. I haven’t seen anybody else offer up the dictionary for proof, along with scripture, of Cruz’s eligibility. So that part was new. Most people offer Constitutional arguments.

      To think the answer was right there in the dictionary all along…

      What a fool I’ve been.

    • Dictionaries are great tools. However, laws trump our definitions.

      Ted Cruz is made eligible as a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN based on the MCCARRAN-WALTER ACT:
      There are those that say he is not a natural born citizen because when he was born he was under British Crown. But US has a clause under the McCarran-Walter Act, which states if one of the parents is a US citizen the child still be considered natural born citizen of US.

      Here’s that broken down more in detail: http://www.cafeconlecherepublicans.com/is-ted-cruz-a-natural-born-citizen/

  38. With each iSLAMic attack comes more concern from Americans about our borders, refugees, illegal immigration. There’s already been 2 just in the past 30 days, plenty more to come.

    And another WAR.

    ISIS now has a firm stronghold in SIRTE, LIBYA and is planning entering into ITALY, their goal is to attack ROME and then enter Europe. This diagram shows their anticipated route from Sirte, Libya to Rome, which is not far away, but look how close Sirte is to Sicily. But a few HOURS!
