The answer Rush gave his caller about Trump’s supposedly not doing as well in red states goes to one of the big problems with Cruz. He got destroyed in the South. Sure, people can “Well some of those state were close”, but fact is Cruz, in an area where he should have run very strongly, got blitzed. I would say another significant blunder from early in the campaign on Cruz part as Trump made it his business to sweep through the South on pre primary campaign trips. Cruz wrongly assumed the South would come around and they did not. Overconfidence.
