Ted Cruz Exit 2016 White House Race: why a Canadian-born cannot be POTUS?
Nomination had seemed within reach for Ted Cruz when he steadily rose through the 2015 campaign season and broke into the top tier in the state of Iowa in early 2016. His chances began to unravel however, immediately Donald Trump seized to accommodate further intra-party debates; arguing they had had enough of aspirants’ debate within their party. Suddenly and sadly, Ted Cruz was facing huge hemorrhaging of supporters and the crescendos of his humiliating loss in Indiana due to this new reality, probably showed him the door or informed him, it was time to go home. The strings of massive losses stood as a beacon of incompetence and a disorderly campaign that was losing all that was left of its steam. His contemplation that his candidacy will be driven by perceived discontent with the Republican establishment, at least this time around, is and was a fluke; or, delusional mischaracterization. The rank and file were supporting Donald Trump, a novice to national politics; a true outsider, believed by the rank and file republicans, could shake things up from bottom to the top of the party. Can Ted Cruz’s candidacy have made more of an impact on the direction of the party, the way Donald Trump’s may, if he had won the nomination? It is difficult to say for now; however, it appears that the rank and file Republicans supporting Donald Trump have an amicable respect and conviction in him and there is no name calling or mischaracterization of Donald Trump as a sniveling coward, or amoral pathological liar, coming from foreign-born Ted Cruz, could have unravel his candidacy or prospect; and or, dissuade his loyalists.
