(SNIPETS...best parts IMHO)
The two most recent public polls have shown Cruz ahead. And a Dewhurst ally with knowledge of an internal survey separate from the campaigns told POLITICO his preferred candidate was trailing by high single digits heading into the weekend.
I think [Dewhursts] done, said the Republican who shared the information in exchange for anonymity. Its Nebraska, Indiana. You just smell it. Hes toast.
Theres an intangible feeling out there that hes got the momentum, Utah Sen. Mike Lee said of Cruz. The two appeared together at a FreedomWorks convention in Dallas Thursday night. Hes a genius Hes the candidate to beat, hes the candidate who is going to win.
An Austin-based GOP-er who runs in Dewhursts circles asserted the view within the campaign was equally grim, lamenting the drag of a consultant-heavy team that hadnt prepared for the prospect of a drawn-out runoff.
The campaign has more political consultants than the Mormon Tabernacle Choir has singers, groused the insider.

Finally, some good news on election prospects.
[Cruz] had no chance under the old rules, but he has every chance to win under the new political reality where the American people are in charge, DeMint told the faithful Friday. Washington no longer controls things.
Says it all. Let's roll.
I hope the establishment republicans get the message. We're mad as hell and we're not gonna take it.
Wonder which one of the Dewhurst shills that have infected this place lately spilt the beans here.
PPP just released their final poll, Cruz up by ten.
With the current vote count to date, Cruz is up 55-40.
Once Dewhurst is done, Conservatives need to focus on removing the bastard traitor House Speaker Joe Straus.
Dewhurst who claims to be a self made business man made all his winning the Jimmy Carter Co Generator Lotto of 1980.
He had the fuel and the capital to build a generator in west Texas. The Law stated that existing “public utilities” had to buy their generator output at their avoided costs.
So the rate payers ensured his rate of return that was more than the state allowed rate for TXU.
Made it on his own. Not.
Texans, if you haven’t voted yet, get out there Tuesday and bring some people. Go, Cruz!
Dewhurst didn’t think he had anything to worry about in the beginning.
When he figured out there might be a problem...the nasty attack ads started.
I used to think either Dewhurst or Cruz would be fine. No longer.
Dewhurst cratered himself with untrue ads. At least in my world.
Yep. Long ago they got the message, but they don't like it. And will do everything in their power to resist it. This election may be the point where that it over. This is up to We The People to FIX.
Now that brightens my morning. Thanx
I think Dewhurst put the nail in the coffin when he tried to get Cruz to debate in Spanish.
Folks didn’t really appreciate that lil stunt.
