I read in another thread that Jeb Bush requested his name NOT be placed on the CPAC Straw Poll. lol
I am surprised that Cruz only got 4%.
I wonder how many votes Jeb would have gotten... 5?
Whatever other reasons Cruz might have only got 4% (and Paul and Rubio “won” with a total of nearly half the vote in a field of dozens) , I think the main one is that there’s
a kind of collective turning away from Cruz as being too
abrasive and too confident in that abrasiveness: here is where the “NEW” face of the GOP-e asserts itself: Cruz is not the face that they want to present to the American public.
They accept him provisionally as a hitman, but not as a figurehead/candidate.
