Trump has the name recognition, owns the media, Conservative enough and has the best shot at winning the White House.
Things ANTI-Trump Cruz supporters do not get:
* Republican candidates are running against the MEDIA. The media will run rough-shod over Cruz like a cement truck. Trump owns the media.
* Cruz is a POLITICIAN. A Senator no less – like Obama. Trump is a powerful, successful businessman.
* Trump PROMISES to BUILD a BORDER WALL – UNDER BUDGET with Mexico paying for it. To seriously doubt that is foolish. Trump is in the building business. No other candidate can promise that. If Trump is elected and doesn’t keep his promise – he will go down in history as the biggest fool ever. Trump’s ego will not allow that.
* Cruz is for H-1B – disastrous immigration policy that steals American jobs. Trump is dead-fast against H-1B.
* Cruz has been and will continue to be EFFECTIVELY knee-capped by the media. Every time the media tries to destroy Trump his poll numbers go up.
* Cruz’s votes to support TPPA concerns me.
* Trump’s campaign is SELF-FINANCED – beholden to NOBODY. Cruz is controlled by big donors.
* Cruz vs. Bush – the GOP will make sure Bush wins and can outspend Cruz. Trump vs. Bush – Trump has the money to beat the GOP machine.
“Make America Great Again” – what is Cruz’s campaign slogan?
There’s much more to the advantage of coalescing behind Trump instead of Cruz.
If I was confident Cruz could make the nominee and win the general election I’d be right there with you with pom poms. BUT… Trump has the name recognition to the general public and has the better shot at winning the White House.
Republicans have been whining about a THIRD PARTY for decades – you finally got one WITHIN the Republican party with TRUMP.
