Internal Poll Numbers Show Cruz Collapsing In Indiana…

From the outset, and particularly since the ridiculous “Never Trump” campaign began, we have outlined the most damaging aspect to Senator Ted Cruz’s presidential bid is his continued visibility.  The reasoning is simple: the more people see and hear Cruz,  the more the average electorate are turned off by Cruz.  He’s just not a likeable man.

Indiana for Trump

A CNN article today points out the internal polling within Indiana is following this consistent pattern:

[…] Cruz allies and people close to the campaign describe a budding sense of gloom, with internal polls diving as Trump mounted even stronger than expected showings in his native northeast. In Indiana, which Cruz backers once believed they were favored to win after his strong defeat of Trump in Wisconsin, Cruz’s numbers have fallen precipitously: Once leading, Cruz now trails in the state by eight to 10 points, according to a person who has seen the numbers, with Trump over the 40% mark. Cruz’s campaign did not respond when asked about those figures. (link)

Indiana is the absolute last chance for Senator Ted Cruz and the entire coalition behind the #NeverTrump movement.  Like Florida in March, tens of millions are now being spent to psychologically target the larger electorate in Indiana with a constant barrage of negative attack ads.

 

Cruz Campaign Can’t Fill A Rally:  […]  An NBC news truck was parked outside of the center. There were also five marked police cars as well as a couple of fire department vehicles. There were some cars being used to block off a sidewalk on the side of the building, but other than that nothing else stood out about the convention center from the outside.

Inside the center, about a 1,000 supporters came to see Cruz. Many people thought the turnout was underwhelming.

“I was surprised how few people there were,” Joseph Romary said.  Valerie Reynolds said she was surprised half the room was empty. It holds about 2,250 people.  “I mean it’s a big room,” she said.  (link)

The Anti-Trump Super-PAC’s are “all in”, and together with the entire construct of the professional consultant class, they are desperately searching for something, anything, that will allow them to retain some grip on the billion dollar campaign finance market.

The Cruz campaign is throwing everything, including carly Fiorina’s kitchen sink, at Trump in their last ditch effort to save the strategy of a contested convention.  If you have followed the GOPe for any length of time you already know the severity of anger, and the disposition of vitriol, that exists within the Professional Republican Political class.

There is never a more dangerous moment for a rescue swimmer than the moment they reach out to a drowning and desperate man.   The remaining five days leading up to the Indiana vote will be filled with wild accusations and mudslinging in the GOPe’s last desperate efforts to save their financial livelihoods.

If Donald Trump wins in Indiana, or more aptly put – if Ted Cruz doesn’t win in Indiana, the entire anti-Trump effort will suffer a mortal and unrecoverable defeat.

The level of visible hatred exhibited by a screaming Mark Levin will climax over the next five days as last-gasp desperation sinks in.  The gaslighting by Rush Limbaugh will be on maximum overdrive.  The angered voices of the desperate anti-Trump media who echo-chambered their way too far out in their #NeverTrump efforts will increase exponentially.

All of those angered voices are only a few days away from seeing themselves cast into the pit of irrelevance; at this point, with the last vestiges of their careers seemingly hanging by a thread, they have nothing to lose from trying to drag everyone into the flames along with them.

The predictable: Anger – Pride – Ego – Envy, etc. will all be on display as apoplectic political opponents lash out in every direction.   Everyone would be wise to steer clear of the thermonuclear blasts they are willing to unleash as they ultimately exhaust themselves.

It is better to stay clear of the blast radius from the ‘splodey heads:

    Open primary but must have already registered.

    All Indiana delegates (57) are awarded in the Republican primary. The GOP utilizes a winner-take-all system for awarding delegates. Three delegates are awarded in each congressional district (27 total) to the district winner, and 30 at-large delegates (including 17 bonus delegate and 3 RNC delegates) are awarded to the winner of the statewide vote.

    We don’t know how many managed to register in time. So it’s important for Indiana Trump supporters to get out and talk down Lyin’Ted and Romper Room Toddler Kasich. You have to deter their supporters from showing up to vote if they can’t pull the lever for Trump due to whatever personal hangups!

    You can even shame them from votng for candidates who collude in a way that is illegal in the business world and reinforce what a loser and crony Kasich is for not bothering to show up for his own rally because Lyin’Ted told him not to, This is a useful idiot, not a president. He’ll sell out and abandon even his own mailman people (blue collars) for a free triple-decked ice cream cone) and all-you-can-eat-expense-account.

    Here’s the Romper Room Toddler showing mommy, his wife, that he does eat healthy.

    At the beginning I was leaning towards Cruz but the more I looked at him, the more I got turned off. To be honest, I was angry. He is very much a typical lying DC insider and he proved it by lying about Dr, Ben Carson dropping out when he didn’t trying to steal votes, stealing delegates and laughing that Trump didn’t understand the rules and ganging up with Kasich to defeat Trump in Indiana. They guy is just too sleazy.

      I heard Pence’s “endorsement” yesterday on Hannity’s program. It’s hardly what you’d call a ringing endorsement. My take on it is he’s trying to appease both sides of the argument with a lukewarm endorsement of Cruz but also being very, very careful NOT to condemn Trump in any way. Why? Right now there’s every indication Trump is going to be the hands-down nominee of the GOP and, as time goes on, it’s going to be increasingly likely he’ll be President. The governor doesn’t want to offend the guy who has his fingers on the Federal purse strings – that is, the budget with its grant money, through contact with Congress. If I were him I’d be butt-hurt by sitting on that fence all the time, those picket points or little iron points have got to be hurting by now. Indiana voters, you need to be taking a hard look at this guy and wondering if he really stands for anything.

  5. Well, I’ve heard it all…Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics has released a poll where Cruz leads by 16 points in Indiana. I’m hearing they used data from weeks ago. Probably a bogus planted poll considering internal polling and the RCP average for public polling shows Trump in the lead.

    I think Indiana will be a tough battle, folks. Every Trump supporter needs to go out and vote!

    I’m curious if early voting will help or hurt Trump. How far back does early voting go in Indiana? Did it start recently or months ago? Weeks ago, Cruz probably had the advantage with hoosier voters but things have turned in Trump’s favor over the past two weeks.

    Come on Hoosier state! Don’t let me down.

The other 30 delegates are either bound to Cruz/Kasich, OR the committee will vote to UN-bind ALL the Virginia delegates if Donald Trump does not win the nomination on the first ballot at the convention. To me, this translates into somehow stealing Trump delegates to switch their convention votes to Cruz/Kasich/some other GOP professional political hack.

    I supported Cruz but I think Trump has shown himself to be the stronger candidate. Voters still waiting to cast their ballots in the remaining states can see that Cruz is done, and Kasich was a non-starter from the very beginning, and remains so. I sincerely hope that Trump wraps up the nomination before the convention.

    I’m not a single issue voter, nor a rigid ideologue. On the issues that count most Trump is spot on; even if he does nothing more than enforce our immigration laws, it will be enough everything else is just icing on the cake. Deport California red.

    In as few words as possible, since I am not emotionally attached to either, I will explain the distrust of Trump among the many Cruz supporters this way:

    IF we take Trump at his word, and what he is saying in this nomination fight is the truth, then Trump is rock solid.

    HOWEVER, if we consider that he is a man who proudly boasts about the DECADES he spent building his business empire by indiscriminately greasing the politicians of all stripes who could help his company; and explains talking out both sides of his mouth as just telling those people what they wanted to hear on key issues to help things along. BUT NOW, he tells us, he is unmasked, this is the REAL Donald Trump, and proceeds … to tell us exactly what we want to hear.

    Not too hard to understand why so many who have been burned before prefer a pugnacious Senator who went to Washington and pissed off absolutely EVERYBODY by taking a stand.

        CTH’s analysis of the GOPe and the “splitter strategy” is brilliant, and I have no doubt it is correct. HOWEVER, Ted Cruz is one of those rascally, off-the-reservation Republicans the splitter strategy was designed to block.

        If you dislike Cruz, fine; everyone has a right to their own opinion and just because a person disagrees with me it doesn’t make them automatically wrong or evil.

        There are several points of differentiation between Trump and Cruz. If your primary issues are economic and trade then Trump is much stronger on those issues than Cruz; Cruz is an attorney by trade, a strong Constitutionalist but pretty weak outside that; his crass appeal to Evangelicals (which I find off-putting) is a calculation based on capturing the voters Romney missed last time around.

        Trump does not appear to have any particular knowledge or interest in Constitutional matters, but he is a charismatic strong personality with a fearlessness rarely seen, and a razor-sharp instinct for honing in on his opponents’ weakness. He is also a brilliant executive, a fact his churlish persona “The Donald” belies. I hope – no, I fully EXPECT – he will hire some brilliant legal counsel to advise him on those matters.

        Trump, unlike Cruz, is very good at selling his ideas to people who aren’t already convinced: He preaches to the masses, not the choir. One thing they have in common: Neither man suffers from the need to “be liked” and Cruz in particular considers his enemies’ hatred a badge of honor.

        In the end, I think that was Cruz’ undoing: He LIKES to be hated, by those he considers enemies (hence his “sneer” about “New York values”). Trump doesn’t court hatred, nor does he give it cousel: He ignores it and moves on. And that’s why he’s a winner.

      As for Cruz, the real reason Ted is sooooo hated by the DC elite is NOT that he’s an outsider who resists what they want; it’s that he didn’t follow the Rep norm of “waiting his turn.” That’s it.

      When Dole was Sen Majority leader, he announced he was running and every Rep Gov in the country endorsed him overnight (wanna draw the hate of a man that powerful?) Was he the best candidate? No, it was his turn. Same with McCain. Same with Mittens. The party has a pecking order and Ted decided to elbow his way to the front of the line by grandstanding. There are plenty of big money insiders pouring money into his campaign and Superpacs (Eg. Wilks bros). He cut the line; that’s it.

      Otherwise, he’s pure establishment and his administration will have maybe a few conservative benefits: repeal of idiot executive orders (he doesn’t need anyone else to do that). Probably some conservative judicial picks (but watch to see if he supports them when The Dems attack). Beware any promise that ends in “to the best of my ability” or “to the furthest extent allowable in law” as he’s telegraphing limits to his commitments I don’t see Cruz as leading the fight to fundamentally change things as that will take Congressional cooperation and I think Cruz has–er–“issues” there..

As it turned out, there was very little interest in following through on that promise, outside of a handful in the House and Senator Cruz.

          McConnell and Boehner were hell-bent on stopping anybody from fighting Obama, convinced that doing so would hurt the party (it didn’t, of course). And THAT’S why they hate Ted Cruz.

          LOL, there sure as heck have NOT been many “mavericks” willing to stand up to the left during Obama’s reign. Cruz exposed the “show votes” the GOP tried to use to make their supporters THINK they were voting against the Obama agenda, but were secretly lowering the vote threshold required to help the Democrats get their agenda passes while allowing themselves to vote against it, knowing it would pass anyway. It’s this exposure of the routine conning the Congress does to the voter that ticked them off, not just policy issues. Cruz took on his own party. Yes, there are some other conservatives, especially in the House. Look at Dave Brat. Don’t you realize that if he ever rose to national prominence to run for President, the establishment would go after him just as much as they go after Cruz?

    I agree with most of this article except with the statement that Cruz’s campaign might be over if he loses in Indiana. Cruz thinks he is on a Blues Brothers “Mission from God” and he will continue to campaign until the last dog dies. I would not put it past him to sue the GOP and Trump after the convention if Cruz is not the nominee. His followers have morphed from a campaign into a full blown cult. If you have access, read some of the absolutely crazy things said on the closed Cruz Facebook groups. These people have really lost their minds.

      While cruz might continue the circus show, if Trump wins Indiana he most assuredly will have more than the 1237 delegates he needs–even if some are bought off by cruz. I’m so tired of hearing about a contested convention and am ready for Trump not to have to worry about that and start working on hillary!

      • I’m with you, theMusingFox. If Cruz is supposed to be the one who can beat Hillary, why isn’t he doing better in the Primary? If Cruz needs to get the nomination by using a Contested Convention, I promise there will be MILLIONS of voters who will NOT support him. I’m one of those. I will take my red marker and write TRUMP acorss my ballot in bright, red letters. Now, for those of you who say that’s a vote for Hillary, well so is a vote for Cruz, should he snatch the nomination away by his manipulating of the delegates. He will only piss off the American Voters who came out by the MILLIONS to support Trump. Trump is the ONLY one Hillary is scared to face in November no matter what the Dems say. I wasted my vote the last two times, NOT AGAIN! I have voted Republican for the last 39 years, but if Cruz is the one on the Republican ticket, I won’t be voting this time. I will write Trump’s name in big bold letters,and then leave the Republican Party, As far as I’m concerened the Republican and Democrat parties are merely two cheeks on the same ASS, and I’m tired of being used.
        Here is a letter I sent to Dennis Michael Lynch that says just how I feel – https://www.facebook.com/DMLdaily/videos/1160358274003628/?hc_location=ufi

    So the Trump campaign has him up 19 points…ARG has him up 9 points…and some unknown Mike Downs poll suddenly has Cruz dominating Trump by double digits. Its the only one saying this and this is the one people are saying is real…also I am confused by 538s page…their collection of polls all show Trump ahead by at least a couple points yet they have Cruz at 65% chance of winning the state. How does that make sense?

    • For 538, it’s called wishful thinking. The Mike Downs poll is of “registered voters”. That’s meaningless for a REPUBLICAN primary. ALL the polls of republican likely voters show the Trump train rolling on!

    According to Roger Stone, Kasich is being financed by George Soros, hoping for contested convention, both him and Cruz being promised to be voted in on 2nd ballot. But truth be known they both are being played by GOP because they hate Cruz as well. If Trump, Cruz or Kasich don’t get enough delegates, they can put anybody in. It is definitely rigged. I just read that VA was gonna cheat Trump out of the majority of delegates he won fair and square. The ONLY way to keep GOP from splitting party is if Trump can win up front, and they are pulling out all the big guns and big money to stop him. Trump is smart, but learning as he goes. These guys are ruthless.

      Lifelong Republicans like myself will not allow a lying, cheating, bloviating, RINO, orange pig to steal the party and hand the election to the Democrats. If he wanted a guaranteed nomination, he should’ve run in his own party. He doesn’t have the right to just waltz in and take someone else’s party over. The Republican party, like our country, is run like a representative Republic and not a democracy. The Rules Committee is run by the delegates that Trump failed to show up to even try to get in most states. His incompetence will lose him the nomination when the rules rule him out one way or another. Then the rest of us will be spared from having to lose to Hillary in the fall or to possibly have this vile, hateful, ignorant, ill-tempered, ill-mannered, rude, disgusting, out-of-touch, ignorant, liberal, greedy, selfish, lying, cheating, conning billionaire from taking over our country.

        Not really worth replying to someone like you. But since you’ve managed to come here and be so insulting to other lifelong Republican voters…might as well. I’m in VA, and know a great deal about the GOP-Establishment efforts to keep their power. VA is mirroring what they’re doing in every state of the union.

        Regardless of the outcome, the GOP will implode, so you can enjoy your sanctimonious, self-righteousness while you can, because those millions of voters who have voted in good faith for a nominee NOT of the GOP-E’s choosing – will certainly have their revenge at the ballot box in November.

    The other day the North American Law Review raised it’s legal arguements as to why Cruz was not eligible to run for President. In fact, the conclusions are now the basis for law suits in Texas. Much of what has been uncovered may also lead to his ineligibility as even a Senator If Cruz is allowed to run this is frau . Why have no election officials raised question ?

    Your propaganda campaign against conservatives is dishonest and disgusting. You sound like a bought-and-paid-for arm of Moveon.org. Donald Trump is a lying con artist, a fake conservative and a New York RINO. Ted Cruz is an absolutely honest, principled, Reagan conservative who is the ONLY one who will fundamentally reform our government. Trump’s proposals range from pure BS he thinks Republican voters want to hear and weak sauce proposals that won’t change anything. Entitlement reform? He has nothing, except possibly government-guaranteed and funded health care, the same garbage guarantees that Fannie and Freddie used to destroy the housing market. Tell your deep-pocketed, anti-American funders that your non-stop spin doesn’t work on anybody except the poorly educated and easily manipulated. Trump’s cheap, pathetic, lackadaisical efforts in funding his campaign means he didn’t even show up to collect delegates. He will lose at the Rules Committee, run by the delegates, which means he will lose the nomination. And which means we will SAVE our country from a lying, cheating, bloviating pig who despises every single conservative whose votes he lied to get.

      You know i’m hearing a lot about Principled Conservatives, and I’d like to know who is in charge of judging my principals in order to be considered conservative. Every single Ted Cruz supporter I have ever seen, heard from or spoken to has been very rude and condescending. Including the Senator. If those are the principals that describe being conservative you can count this poorly educated voter with a masters degree out. I will always put the person before any party and the country above all. That being said, Cruz’s list of accomplishments pale in comparison to, well, almost everyone. Other than being able to make everyone hate him so much that no one wants to work with him, he’s an absolutely disingenuous person that lies so much I’m not sure he even knows what the truth is. But that’s politics. At best he’s an academic politician with no real-world experience, zero and I mean absolutely zero leadership skills, and no shot at beating Hillary Clinton in the fall. Donald Trump is a leader, a winner and a champion. He’s going to win Indiana, California, Oregon, West Virginia, and Nebraska I think. That’s 5 out of the next 10. He’s definitely got enough first ballot votes and he will be the nominee. He is also tied with Hillary Clinton nationally so with or without the conservative base of the republican party, Donald Trump will be the next President of the United States.

But this primary has been an excellent teacher – because the GOP is going to implode if they steal the nomination. We’ll be looking forward to the emptying out of the Congress of every GOP critter who will be voted out. Then you all can go back out in the wilderness saying, “woe is me.”
