Is today Ted Cruz’s day?
Strange question, eh? But that is what some are saying as Donald Trump looks to be favored in Florida and could win Ohio as well.
If that happens, that could/would knock both Kasich and Rubio out of the race, giving Cruz the coveted mano a mano with Trump.
Just looking at some of the poll info, some are saying Rubio still has a punchers chance in Orange Juice / Alligator Land with all of the absentee votes that have already been cast. Not sure why those would all go to Rubio, but some think that’s his only hope.
By the way, under this plan — from the Cruz campaign — they would not wrap up the nomination until JUNE. (That is AFTER the Nebraska primary, peoples.)
And that is a plan for Cruz to actually WIN the nomination, though likely on the 2nd ballot at the convention — after the 100 or so unbound delegates are free to vote, but before the Wild West would begin on a third ballot.
Oh, and all of this depends on Kasich and Rubio dropping out.
You might want to catch the results tonight.
For you Law-Talkin’-Guys
One interesting thought I saw on the Twitter was a criticism of Cruz’s lawyering background.
Cruz’s main experience is as an appellate lawyer, not a trial lawyer. In other words, he has spent most of his time talking to and writing for and arguing in front of Judges, not juries.
So, as some have put it, he is heavy on the logos, but not as much on the pathos. He is solid on the logical, legal arguments, but not as skilled on the emotional arguments, the ones that sway juries — and voters.
Oh sure voters want to tell you they are weighing all the arguments and policies of Candidate X versus Candidate Y, but we all know that ain’t the case.
If it were, Trump would have been gone a long time ago. Which isn’t to hammer The Donald too hard, but c’mon. His politics and policies have been all over the board for the past decades and even his supporters recognize that. But instead, they will tell you how they feel about Trump and what they think he will do and why.
Cruz on the other hand wants to point out that he has been a rock-ribbed conservative and always has been. And then you get that he has a rat-face, and oh boy, here we go.
It is only reality, and I’m not sure how Cruz works it out.
But even with his gigantic plan above, he will have to watch out for the Trump juggernaut that can take out even the most practiced legal mind.
Again, you might want to watch the results tonight.
Bowl the Tide!
And hey, as you’re watching those results come in, don’t forget about the Bluejays taking on Alabama! Sure it’s the NIT-picker, but it’s not a bad consolation for this year’s hard working team.
(I’d like to hear those of you who aren’t Creighton fans, but my fingers are in my ears and I can’t hear you!)
Chime in here after the results are in, and include me @LeavenworthSt on your Twitter comments!
