Values Voters Deliver Iowa for Ted Cruz

Tuesday, February 2, 2016 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News) - Ted Cruz won a major victory in Monday's Iowa caucuses. Polls showed him running behind Donald Trump, who attacked Cruz furiously, calling him a nasty person, a stooge of Goldman Sachs, and, heaven forbid, a Canadian. But Cruz persevered and beat Trump 28 to 24 percent, with Marco Rubio a close third at 23 percent. Cruz's path to the Republican nomination depended on him winning the Iowa caucuses. Well, he won them.

How? I think the key number in the entrance poll was the one showing that Iowa Republicans overwhelmingly believe Cruz shares their values. Trump bombed in that category. When Cruz attacked Trump for identifying with “New York values,” the Acela corridor media (including yours truly) jumped on him. But the attack seems to have worked in Iowa. It may work elsewhere, too.

Cruz’s victory demonstrates the importance of organization. His Iowa campaign was methodical, diligent, persistent. We’ve been hearing about Cruz’s turnout operation and technological apparatus for months, and the hype proved true. [ Source ]
