With now four wins under his belt, Cruz is the only one positioned to defeat Donald Trump! Plus, my analysis of last night’s results! TED CRUZ FOR PRESIDENT!

There is absolutely no question now that this race has entered a brand new phase especially in light of some of the huge victories that we witnessed last night for the most consistent conservative in this race!

Cruz’s big wins on Super Tuesday and Marco’s lackluster performances, only solidifies Cruz’s place as the only candidate left in this race who can take-on Donald Trump and rescue away his grip on the nomination!

Before we begin to proceed into Cruz’s big night last night, I think something needs to be said about Senator Marco Rubio. It’s beyond obvious at this point that Marco Rubio, in light of his poor showing last night and his modest delegate total so far, should humble himself and graciously drop out of this race for the good of the country and for the good of the party.

Marco under performed badly last night and even many of his cheerleaders on Fox News and his supporters in the establishment are publicly stating what we all know to be a fact. There is clearly no pathway for Marco to receive this nomination, even if he were to perform a miracle in Florida in two weeks, which is very unlikely considering he’s double digits behind Trump in the latest polls in his home state!

Ted Cruz proved very decisively last night why he is the only one in this race who can defeat Donald Trump for the nomination! Cruz has now defeated the Fraud a total of four times, five if you count edging him out in Minnesota!

Speaking of Minnesota, Marco’s only win in this entire primary so far was in that state’s Caucuses last night, but it can’t really be called much of a victory considering that Cruz almost matched him in the total delegates awarded out of that state.

In addition, Cruz amassed dozens more delegates last night than Rubio and Cruz’s total delegate count is well over 100 delegates more than Rubio’s! It’s beyond clear that Cruz had a much better night than Marco Rubio and had tons more victories to celebrate!

Once again, Marco needs to graciously exit this race and encourage his supporters to rally behind Ted Cruz, seeing that Cruz is the only one who has so far beaten Donald Trump on four separate occasions, five if you consider Minnesota!

Plus, as it’s been stated before, the polls consistently show that Cruz can defeat Donald in a head to head contest! One poll even showed Cruz defeating Donald by as much as 16 points!

There was a lot to be proud of last night if you are a Cruz supporter and if you are one of the 65% of Republicans who don’t want Donald to be the nominee, last night should have given you some encouragement going forward!

GOD BLESS TEXAS!

It is no secret by now that Ted Cruz won three states total last night, which gives him a total of four wins in this primary so far! None of us were surprised by Cruz’s first place finish in the crown jewel delegate-rich state of Texas, seeing that he has represented that state in the Senate for four years now and of course polls consistently showed him beating Trump and Rubio there!

31C2001200000578-3472467-image-a-8_1456902272901

What was very surprising though was how well he did in the Lone Star State!

Cruz was only about six points shy of reaching the 50% threshold that would’ve awarded him all 155 delegates, which he would’ve easily surpassed Donald Trump in total delegates awarded so far!

Cruz beat Trump in Texas by a total of 17 points and he beat Rubio by almost 30 points! The total amount of delegates out of Texas that Cruz earned was 99 compared to Trump’s 38 and Rubio only earned 4!

I think it is safe to say that if Cruz hadn’t won Texas last night, it would’ve been a huge blow to his candidacy and Trump and media would have of course capitalized on that loss and probably would have declared the Fraud our nominee!

God bless Texas for all the right reasons last night! We can always depend on the Patriots in the Lone Star State to do the right thing on behalf of God and country! I would expect nothing less from the very state that birthed our constitutional warrior!

THREE WINS AIN’T BAD!

Out of fourteen state contests in this primary so far, and as of this morning, Ted Cruz has now won a third of them and he won a total of three last night alone! As I’ve said before, we all expected a Texas win for obvious reasons, but the real surprise of the evening was Cruz’s victory in Oklahoma and his very recently declared victory in the Frontier State of Alaska!

Alaska was a surprising victory for one because there hadn’t been any polling done in that state since I believe December and because of the Palin endorsement of Trump!

Alaska demonstrated last night that Sarah Palin, as much as she use to be admired by conservatives, has lost a ton of respect from the grassroots since her surprising announcement in January!

Alaskans, like most conservatives, appear to have felt a sense of betrayal by her and perhaps that was manifested in last night’s results! That is just my take on the situation at least!

Even though Alaska had only 28 delegates, given the fact that it is a very small state, 12 of them went to Cruz and 11 went to Trump! Alaska was mostly a symbolic victory for Cruz and it gives him some bragging rights to show an extra win that frankly no one was expecting!

10008525_G

Oklahoma, I must say, was a bit more surprising considering that all of the polling data leading up to last night, was showing huge leads for Trump in that state! In fact, one poll taken over the weekend actually showed Trump leading Cruz in Oklahoma by 13 points! Cruz ended up defeating Trump in the Sooner State by 6 points, which just illustrates why polls, just like we saw in Iowa, can’t always be trusted!

Just as I predicted yesterday, besides Texas, Cruz did indeed pick up that one or two more states that he needed, and as a result, solidified his place as Trump’s main opponent in this primary!

ON TRUMP’S TAIL!

Another one of the surprising and yet better than expected results from last night was how many states where Cruz came in second! Out of eleven states, with three first place wins, Cruz finished just behind first place in four of them!

If you compare that with Rubio, who only came in first place in one state, but finished in third in about 8 of them! That means in two-thirds of the states that held contests last night, Marco Rubio couldn’t even earn a second place finish, ending up in third place in most of them! Once again, a very bad and tough night for Marco, which further illustrates why he needs to drop out now!

One of Cruz’s second place finishes took place in Arkansas which happened to be one of the closest margins between he an Trump of any contest so far! Cruz was only two points from edging out Trump in Arkansas and making that state his fourth win of the night!

He received a total of 14 delegates out of the Razorback state, compared to Trump’s 16!

Over all, things went much better than expected on Super Tuesday for Ted Cruz and the night was certainly more positive for him than it was for Rubio!

Just as Cruz stated in his speech last night in Texas, which I’ve pasted below, we are now at a point in this race where it is obvious that Marco Rubio is clearly standing in the way of defeating Donald Trump, and in a sense, is paving Trump’s path to the nomination!

If Rubio doesn’t make his decision very soon, we could very well be faced with a totally unstoppable Donald Trump, which will have devastating consequences on our chances in November, not to mention even more devastating consequences for the conservative movement and especially for the Republican party!

I don’t think it’s hyperbole to say that Marco Rubio has the future of our nation and the future of the party in his hands tonight!

The man needs to leave this race now and free up Ted Cruz to defeat Donald Trump! Anything less than that is just handing the nomination over to this Fraudulent liberal!

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – Deuteronomy 4:29-31 (NIV)

"But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you look for him with all your heart and with all your soul. When you are in distress and all these things have happened to you, then in later days you will return to the Lord your God and obey him. For the Lord your God is a merciful God; he will not abandon or destroy you or forget the covenant with your forefathers, which he confirmed to them by oath." 3-7-16

QUOTE OF THE DAY: Donald Trump from”Crippled America” (Posted on 3-7-16)

"But then I realized I couldn't stand what I was seeing. I couldn't believe the hypocrisy and inaction of Washington 'insiders' who wanted to keep the gravy train flowing in their direction, while outside the beltway, Americans were suffering and they were rightfully angry about the lack of leadership and creativity. . . . It begins by creating millions of good jobs for hardworking Americans."

PICTURE OF THE DAY – Go Trump!
