Numbers PPP will release next week show Ted Cruz would be an exceedingly weak Presidential candidate in the general election. The good news for the GOP is that even if the party base sees Cruz as their leader Democrats and independents actually see Chris Christie, who has far broader approval, as the leader of the Republican Party these days. With Democrats Christie gets 23% to 17% for Boehner and only 10% for Cruz. And with independents Christie gets 25% to 17% for Cruz and 10% for Boehner. Even if Republicans themselves see Cruz as their leader, they’re better off with everyone else seeing it as Christie.
I can picture RINOpundit masturbating himself into a frenzy as he writes this. But, you know, whatever. If Christie is the nominee, he’s going to need all the independent and Democrat voters he can get. Because a lot of conservatives are going to stay home, myself among them.
And after Hillary or whoever kicks his fat ass, I can listen to all the RINOs bemoaning that they were sabotaged by their unwashed base.
And I’ll laugh.
