"Even Donald Trump believes he has "vanquished" Marco Rubio and is itching for a one on one with Ted Cruz."
It is time. And we don't have much of it. For those who support Donald Trump, please don't take offense. As much as I appreciate Mr. Trump waking up a good portion of the electorate, I don't think he would be as good for our country as either Senator Cruz or Rubio would be. And after the most recent primaries, I think it is crystal clear who the voters want to take on Mr. Trump.
Senator Cruz is asking very politely of Senator Rubio, that he drop out and join Ted's team. Many of the pundits are also starting to feel that way. This is turning into a two man race. For Governor Kasich to stick around until the Ohio vote, for Senator Rubio to stick around for the Florida vote, helps only Donald Trump get ever closer to the number of delegates needed to sew this thing up. Even Donald Trump believes he has "vanquished" Marco Rubio and is itching for a one on one battle with Ted Cruz.
I have to chuckle a bit when I hear Donald Trump say he is going to beat Hillary like a drum when the general rolls around. I chuckle because I have a good memory. I remember Mitt Romney saying he was the only one who could soundly beat the failed candidate, Barack Obama. I remember two years ago when Mike McFadden promised us all if we nominated him, he would take out Al Franken. We all know how those two races ended up.
One of the pundits I listened to yesterday said something interesting. He was quoting one of the more reliable polls by saying that Donald Trump is capped at 35%. In a general, he will have trouble breaking through that cap. If that is true, I don't care who the candidate is, that person would get smoked by the Democrats. In addition, there is a growing number of people (on our side) who have said they will not vote for Donald Trump.
Myself, I think Team Cruz with Marco Rubio supporting him would do quite well in a race against Donald Trump. I think Ted would win the nomination, and beat the pants off of Hillary (if she is not in jail) or any other Democrat that is on the ticket. Ted Cruz may not be a perfect man, but he is very, very good. And a strict Constitutional leader. He would govern this nation fairly and in strict accordance with the constructs set down in our founding documents.
Time is running out, and quickly. We are barely over a week away from the winner take all Florida primary. With Donald Trump way out in front of Marco Rubio in the polls, a win for Trump could spell doom for the rest.
The voters don't want an election where they have to plug their nose and vote for the lesser of two evils. They want a President they can believe in. They can trust. One that can lead us - and not lead us over the cliff.
