Ted Cruz naming Carly Fiorina as Vice President running mate has hit the ground with a loud “thud.” Social media sites are buzzing with negative response to Cruz announcement. It is very unusual that a candidate announces their choice for V.P. before primary elections are completed.

The people have spoken by their vote. Kasich and Cruz are having a complete immature Temper Tantrum over what the voters are saying: “We want Donald Trump as President.” Kasich and Cruz reply to this? “We will force you like us.”
Kasich campaign manager John Weaver acknowledged that he is basically teaming up with Cruz in order to keep Trump below 1,237 delegates. A Trump victory in the winner-take-all state of Indiana would give Trump 57 delegates. The Kasich campaign has already been working the Indiana delegates on a potential second ballot, and claims that it has locked up the support of more than half of them.
So instead of trying to actually win the primary on May 3, Team Kasich is clearing a path for Cruz to go up against Trump one-on-one.
“Our goal is to have an open convention in Cleveland, where we are confident a candidate capable of uniting the party and winning in November will emerge as the nominee,” Kasich campaign manager John Weaver said in a strategy memo Sunday night.
Mere weeks ago, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas pressured Ohio Gov. John Kasich to get out of the race for the Republican nomination because he had no mathematical chance of winning.
“If you want to stop Donald Trump, there is only one campaign and only one candidate who has done so repeatedly and who has any plausible path to do so,” Mr. Cruz told a local Utah television station before that state’s contest last month.
“For Kasich, it’s mathematically impossible,” said Mr. Cruz, curling himself into a pretzel that has since hardened and just crumbled into little pieces this week.
That is because now the exact same thing can be said of Mr. Cruz and his hopeless campaign.
As of this week, it is mathematically impossible for Mr. Cruz to reach the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination. His only hope at this point is if he can sway enough unpledged delegates to his camp.
According to Mr. Cruz’s logic from last month, real estate developer Donald Trump — the only candidate with a path to the nomination — is the only Republican who should remain in the race.
That was then. This is now. That was for John Kasich, not Ted Cruz.
It’s a very simple question but for some reason very hard if not impossible to him to answer.
Here’s a video from CNN it has former Cruz spokeswoman Amanda Carpenter which in the video she is accused as being 1 of 5 Cruz’s allege affairs. She doesn’t answer the simple question either but instead goes into a tirade over the accusations.
Lastly, why hasn’t Trump said anything about this matter? Maybe because one of his own staff members is on the list of allege affairs.
Update Cruz did answer this question and claims he has never had an affair while married.
Democrat Side: Bernie and Hillary have problems. Sure the polling numbers look great and up against a republican they look like winners but if we look close enough, it’s scary for them. Democrats are not voting, in other words, they are sitting on their hands. Look at the outcome of states that have already voted. Very low numbers for turnout.
Bernie: He has the youth and Northern vote. Completely fails in the South and you need that to win.
Hillary: Her biggest asset is “name recognition.” People know who she is, it’s just that simple. Nobody will campaign for her. Yes, Bill has tried to help, but with his background and to put it simply, nobody really remembers him and what he did as President. Even Obama is staying away from her.
She need positive allies and the democrat’s don’t have anybody. There is no shinning star in their camp.
Republican side: Rubio and Cruz have problems. They can’t win any primaries and nationally their polling numbers blow chunks. Trump biggest problem is he can’t get the GOP behind and support him. Republicans are screaming “Conservative party” which is really going to bite them in the general elections. Why would anybody who is not conservative vote for them. They just ran off 60% of possible voters.
Rubio: He has youth and good looks working for him. But that doesn’t win elections. He lacks name recognition. Plus the moment he makes any headway, either the media or the other candidates beat him up. He’s working on damage control, but it’s too little, too late. Even with the GOP behind him, (yes, they are behind him) he can’t build any votes.
His stupidest move is having the long list of other politicians supporting him and he keep’s mentioning Trump in he’s speeches. Why would anybody mention their opponent, by name. Plus people hate politicians, why would you boast about that type of list?
Cruz: The GOP completely hate him. He boast that other senators hate him to. That’s a big problem and stupid statement. People who hate the establishment love him, but that doesn’t work alone. He shoves the constitution in people’s faces in a way that is more annoying than helpful. (reminds me of Ron Paul) His action show he’s a poll watcher and makes movements the way the polls say to do. He also lacks name recognition. If he wins the primary, he’s got a big problem. Conservative only make up 27% of votes, guess who will lose the general.
Trump: His downside is that his campaign is so tight and hard to work with, I wonder if he wins the primary will he allow the GOP in to work with him? He doesn’t trust them and from their past actions, I don’t blame him.
He speaks plainly so that the lowest educated person understands what he says. Which is a big plus for him. His fame is the biggest asset. He has great name recognition. Who doesn’t know who he is or his past.
His campaign is designed to everybody. Left, right, middle, everybody likes him. Which will be a huge help to him in the general.
Voters will not remember anything that is not repeated 30 or 40 times a day. All they will think when they go to vote is: What name do I recognize?
