It’s not looking too good for Ted Cruz and John Kasich who recently announced their latest scheme to work together to try to take delegates away from Donald Trump. A move that has been described as desperate and pathetic.
Trump’s big victory in New York where Cruz got zero delegates has pretty much wiped out what little momentum Cruz got from his recent “victories” most of which involved grabbing up delegates through what most normal people would consider bribery or highly underhanded means. Most Republicans are repulsed by Cruz’s continued unscrupulous tactics.
An article from The Hill reports “Maine Gov. Paul LePage, a Donald Trump supporter, accused the Ted Cruz presidential campaign of reneging on a deal to support a “unity slate” of the state’s primary delegates, according to CNN.”
“‘We reached a deal with Cruz’s national campaign to put up a unity slate that would honor the wishes of the thousands of Mainers who voted at caucus,’ LePage said in a statement. ‘But Cruz’s Northeast Political Director David Sawyer lied to us and broke the deal. Sawyer stabbed us in the back, reneged on the unity slate, and betrayed the people of Maine.'”
“The Maine governor suggested the incident was part of a larger trend of deceit from the Cruz team…”
The latest polls from Real Clear Politics show Trump with 53% in Maryland, 51% in Pennsylvania, 59% in Connecticut, 61% in Rhode Island and 55% in Delaware. There are reports that some delegate manipulation has already taken place in Pennsylvania that will keep Trump from getting all the delegates that he should get from a victory there. Don’t be too surprised if something crooked happens with that state.
Still, a five state blow out for Trump will get him a big step closer to 1,237. Trump is now getting over 50 percent in the polls. One reason for that could be that people are sick of the underhanded tactics of Ted Cruz and the RNC as they desperately try to steal every delegate possible from Trump.
