Well, there you have it. Trump’s Nevadan-acolytes have dropped the fate of the country into the hands of Ted Cruz.
Even if both Kasich and Carson dropped out of the Republican race, the margin between Trump and the rest of the field might be too big for anyone to close. But if either Rubio or Cruz dropped out (ideally, after the TX primary, in which their joint presence would suppress the Trump vote), the other would be a good bet to become the nominee and could lick his chops over the prospect of running against whichever Democrat was not yet in prison. If the nominee is Rubio, it appears that the outcome is a slam dunk for the Republicans; if the nominee is Cruz, all bets are off, because his general appeal is almost as limited as Trump’s.
So, here is the question for Senator Cruz: would you rather the country be led by Rubio or by Bernie Sanders? Are you all in for your country, or are you all in for Cruz?
