Ted Cruz Had a Really Tremendous Weekend Headed Toward Wisconsin

In Colorado, Cruz began picking up lots of delegates. The process in Colorado is a bit convoluted and carries over into this coming weekend. But so far, Cruz is winning the delegates in Colorado. That bodes well for keeping Trump under 1,237 at the convention.

While Colorado was playing out, in North Dakota, Cruz swept up almost all the delegates. In fact, Cruz not only swept up almost all the debates, but all the other delegates save for one single delegate were in the #NeverTrump camp.

Now the polling in Wisconsin has Cruz with a double digit lead over Donald Trump and the Kasich Super PAC effort fading in Wisconsin.

As Chris Cillizza notes, there is a day dreaming part of the Republican Establishment that thinks it can get to Cleveland and stop not just Trump, but also Cruz. The reality is that Ted Cruz is the only one consistently stopping Donald Trump. As Trump becomes easier to stop, Cruz becomes harder to stop.

The quicker the establishment realizes it can preserve the House and Senate with Cruz, the quicker we can get people to rally against Trump heading to Cleveland. Trump can and should be stopped. Ted Cruz is the only one who can do it.
