Is Donald Trump unstoppable? According to Donald Trump, absolutely not. Saturday, Trump declared that his campaign for President is going so well and that those who support Trump are diehard in their endorsement of Donald Trump that even if he shot someone in the middle of a crowded street his campaign would not falter. Speaking in Sioux City, Iowa, Trump said of his protagonists, “They say I have the most loyal people, did you ever consider that? Where I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn’t lose any voters,” Trump then illustrated his point by pulling his fingers into a gun shape. “Okay? It’s like incredible.” The crowd at the campaign stop clapped and some were even heard declaring their love for their candidate, to which Trump replied, “We love you, too, man.”
A new poll among Republican voters provided by CNN, shows that the race for the nomination of the Republican party has come down to a Trump – Cruz battle. The poll results show Trump with 37 percent support to 26 percent for Cruz. Florida Senator Marco Rubio follows with 14 percent. Earlier in the race, Trump and Cruz seemed to have a neutral position when it came to attacking each other politically. Recent weeks though have changed all that. Trump has now assailed Cruz personally calling Cruz, “a nasty guy” and a hypocrite for slamming New York values while taking money from donors in the Big Apple. Trump continued his assault by saying that Cruz is not like even in the senate which will cause large problems if he were elected President as other elected officials would not want to work with Cruz.
Cruz in the meantime, has presented himself as the candidate who could get work done if elected and released his first attack ad about Trump. The ad’s theme is that Trump is all about big business and is not a person who can be trusted to care for the middle class. Cruz also has been persisted in his pursuit of tea party and evangelical vote. In addition to the new ads that the Cruz campaign unveiled, Cruz picked up the endorsement of conservative talk show host, Glenn Beck.
Saturday, Glenn Beck said of Cruz, “In 40 years of broadcast I have never endorsed any candidate… I don’t trust any of the weasels no matter how good they are,” and said of Cruz, “I have prayed for the next George Washington. I believe I have found him.” Trump then said off Beck that Beck as a “loser” and “sad sack,” and reminding all that Trump had his own endorsement a few days ago from Sarah Palin which is far more impactful. Beck followed up that Trump is not what the United States is in need of. Beck said “We don’t believe the things that we used to.” Continuing Beck said “I imagine that you question somewhat yourself: Is this is it? Is this as good as it’s going to get?” Beck then said of Trump, that he is “a guy who has a bunch of strip clubs in casinos.”
One point that both Beck and Cruz are trying to understand is the appeal of the Trump campaign. One Trump supporter described it as “Trump appeals to Americans because voter is fed up with political correctness. They’re tired of having to watch everything they say.” Trump supporters believe they have the numbers to bring their candidate all the way to the White House. As Trump stated, all roads to the White House will have to go through him.
