Ted Cruz is Living in a Dream World if He Thinks He Can Stop Donald Trump Now

In an act of sheer desperation, Texas Senator and Republican Presidential candidate Ted Cruz formally named Carly Fiorina as his vice presidential running mate Wednesday — a last-ditch move to regain momentum after being mathematically eliminated from winning the GOP presidential nomination outright.
Cruz faught a good fight, but there is simply no way for him to get the nomination at this point barring something catastrophic happening to Donald Trump before the Republican National Convention.
Donald Trump now has 987 delegates to Cruz’s 562. With 583 delegates left to win, it is wishful thinking on Cruz’s part to think that Donald Trump will not get 249 of those 583 remaining delegates out there.
Trump needs about 40% of the delegates going forward to clinch the Republican nomination.
There is absolutely no indication that the remaining primary states won’t go to the Donald as well.
Put a fork in Cruz’s campaign for president. It’s over Ted.
Ted Cruz’s silly ploy in choosing Carly Fiorina before the convention is utterly preposterous because barring an act of God, Donald Trump will be the nominee for the Republican Party.
I personally don’t care. I am just not appreciative of Ted Cruz’s brand of socially conservative fundamentalism.
The tragedy of Ted Cruz is that sacrificed much of his brilliant intellect that made him a national debate champion at Princeton and helped him excel at Harvard Law School.
Instead of camapaigning as a constitutional stalwart, he threw it all away by rolling the dice and siding with Evangelical fundamentalists.
While that may have served him well in Iowa and Texas, the East Coast and many other moderate states wanted nothing to do with his wide-eyed and wacky religiosity.
Ted Cruz also voted to renew the patriot act, so he is dead to me.
He didn’t even show up for the Audit the Fed vote in the Senate, so he is worthless to me.
Ted Cruz sold out Liberty months ago.
