Ted Cruz has been on a mission to win the presidency and he has done everything in his power to give him the edge, but it all comes down to tonight.
A year ago, people knew Ted was going to run for president and very few people thought he would rise to the top of the 17-candidate pack. But he did.
Ted Cruz is not only second in delegates, but he also has the most effective “ground game” in the election. His team is peeling off delegates in each state possible and winning elections without votes because he is playing the game right.
The Texas senator has done everything he can to stop Trump. Teaming up with Rubio in the debates, teaming up with Kasich ahead of today’s primary, and even naming Carly Fiorina as a running mate.
He has done all he can, but it looks like it is not enough.
Looking at the average of all the polls, Trump is up 10.7% over Cruz going into today’s battle. The polls range from Trump up two points to over 17. But they all show him ahead.
The Carly Fiorina pick is looking like it didn’t have much effect on the voters and the Kasich partnership is hanging on by a thread.
Cruz has done everything he could possibly do to stop Trump and win the nomination, but is it enough?
Trump numbers are going up and even his national numbers have him beating Hillary Clinton now.
Tonight will be big for the Cruz campaign. Without a win tonight there is no real way to stop Trump from getting the 1,237 delegates needed before the GOP convention.
Will he win and stop Trump?
Will he and John Kasich even stay in if Trump wins?
There are going to be a lot of questions answered tonight and in the coming days, but even if Ted loses tonight and eventually doesn’t get the nomination, there isn’t a person in the Republican Party that doesn’t think Cruz will be back bigger, stronger and a better candidate in 2020.
What do you think? Will Ted Cruz win tonight in Indiana and keep his campaign going?
