I agree with Cruz's ideas and understand that he is brilliant but have one question. With all the fall out from lack of management experience we are dealing with (although in Obama’s case maybe that's a good thing) is it a problem that Cruz doesn't seem to have experience managing anything?

No, I don't think management experience should trump ideology (Jeb) but POTUS isn't exactly a job to learn while you do it. It's just another reason why I've been so pro-Sarah although sadly have to admit she'll never make it to the WH.

I refuse to participate in stupid propaganda, useless opinion polls.
I am serious. I do intend to write in "Vladimir Putin" for president, if the official GOP continues outdemming the dummicrats, and fail to hammer away at the cancers destroying out country...

An arrogant gigantic feral federal bureaucracy and corresponding gigantic Federal debt.
An unchecked invasion by foreign countries intent of completing the "fundamental transformation of the United States of America."

The absolutely malicious program of preventing Americans from using their critical national resources.

The continuing fragmentation of our social structure, not only allowed, but promotd and encouraged by the Federal government.

What will I have to gain?
the accelerated day or reckoning, and the cleaning of the stables, and the ultimate use of lamp poles.

What have I got to lose?
Nothing. Every time we choose the lesser of two evils, things still get worse.
I have reached the point where it can't get any worse. At least in a scenario where I have no choice other than to feel more helpless than before.

I will reluctantly support Ted Cruz if that’s who Obama guard dog Fx News nominates for Republican candidate. (I know that’s not how it’s supposed to work, but ...)

Otherwise, let’s not send any more Harvard Law School-indoctrinated politicians to DC.

I hear you. I ended up voting for the McCain (well, I really was voting for Palin) and Romney tickets. Still have a bad taste.

Sometimes you get a shot and it doesn't take. Ted Cruz is like that.

I like Ted Cruz very much, but at time I think Scott Walker would be a better choice.

" Ted Cruz is like that."

It also helps when you're a Fx News poster child.

So who's your guy/gal/it? Or are you just a bomb thrower?

"So who's your guy/gal/it? Or are you just a bomb thrower?"

Actually, 22nd Amendment aside, if Obama would verifiably promise (ahem) to force Congress to work within its constitutional Article I, Section 8-limited powers, then Obama could have the job for life for all I care. After all, the only intrastate taxing and spending program that the feds would have is mail delivery evidence by Clause 7 of Section 8. And I can see Obama helping to deliver mail with his golf cart.

Otherwise, I think that most "conservative" candidate possibilites that I am aware of seem to want to go to DC and exercise constitutionally nonexistent federal government powers as much as the Democrats do. Sarah Palin might be an exception.

In fact, with all due respect to the family and supporters of the late President Reagan, even he wrongly signed bills that Congress had no Section 8 authority to make. So conservative does not necessarily mean pro-constitutionally limited power federal government.

it’s owned by the NYT

Not anymore. Now owned by the Halifax group. Now, it's carrying articles and commentary from the St. Pete (Tampa Bay) Times. That paper is further left than just about anything. Personal attacks on Rick Scott are the norm.

This poll is about a year too early.

I really like my Sen. Cruz, but a lot of things can change in a year.
