Rightwing wrecking ball and Christian ayatollah Ted Cruz took the April 5 Wisconsin primary, capturing nearly half the GOP vote.
With Trump fast becoming his own worst enemy, Cruz could be heir apparent.
That's not an electoral problem if Sanders wins the Democratic nomination. Sanders performed well against Cruz in voter surveys released April 4.
In a Wisconsin survey by Emerson College, voters chose Sanders over Cruz by a 9-point margin. Meanwhile, Investors Business Daily conducted a general election survey. In IBD's poll, Sanders beat Cruz by 12 points.
Clinton? She edged Cruz by 3 points in Emerson's poll. This survey's margin of error was +/-2.8 points. Essentially, then, Clinton struggled to a statistical dead heat against Cruz. A tossup.
In the IBD poll, Clinton beat Cruz by 5 points, but the margin of error was +/-5.1 points, so all she got was another statistical dead heat. Another coin toss.
How comfortable does that make you feel about Clinton as our nominee if Ted Cruz gets the GOP nod?
Are you willing to bet the US presidency, bank corruption, economic policy and the next Supreme Court picks on a coin toss?
