Republican Establishment Have a Plan to Win the Presidency

Republicans suddenly seeDonald Trump as the more acceptable candidate if the choice is Cruz or Trump. The prevailing belief is that Trump can be controlled by the establishment but there’s another theory.

The Republican establishment could be trying to use Trump to defeat Cruz. The purpose would be to boost Rubio’s chances since he is now the establishment candidate of choice. That’s the supposition of a National Journal writer.

National Journal reporter Josh Kraushaar stated what many believe is the obvious:

If Cruz loses Iowa, he peters out in New Hamp­shire and doesn’t pose a risk of fin­ish­ing in a re­spect­able second place. That al­lows the es­tab­lish­ment win­ner out of the Gran­ite State to build mo­mentum as the anti-Trump al­tern­at­ive. A de­cent num­ber of Cruz’s sup­port­ers, when asked to choose a second can­did­ate, grav­it­ate to Ru­bio. Polls show many more of Trump sup­port­ers, by con­trast, would sup­port Cruz. And even with Trump’s im­prov­ing fa­vor­ab­il­ity num­bers with­in the GOP, there are more Re­pub­lic­an voters who wouldn’t vote for him un­der any cir­cum­stances than say the same about the sen­at­or from Texas.

Republicans would rather see Hillary win than Cruz. They can’t control him and Hillary is establishment. They are even willing to take a chance on Trump winning the nomination.

Trump has very high unfavorability ratings and the party is betting Rubio could beat him in a matchup but they have to dispatch Cruz. Trump is viewed unfavorably by 54.5% of the population in an average of 88 polls. He’s more unpopular than Barack Obama.

Cruz is keeping Trump conservative. If Trump wins the nomination, he will move towards the center. They all do but it will be especially true of him.

If Cruz wins in Iowa, it keeps it to a two-man race between non-establishment candidates. A win-win for the disgusted and fed up.

Cruz is an enemy of the establishment. He went to DC to do what his constituents want and that’s not the DC way. The elites don’t want to leave their comfort zone. We have a Marxist in the White House and a communist or an incompetent liar in line for the presidency, but, still, they don’t hear. It’s business as usual.

While we are trying to debate, analyze, and plan, we have the unpredictable American voter. A woman I know won’t vote for Cruz because she thinks he’s unattractive and at least Hillary is a woman.


  1. No matter what Rafael Edward Cruz or Mark Levin may say, Cruz is not a natural born citizen any more than is the man known as Obama. People who want this nation to prosper need to defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic. Born overseas to a non-citizen father does not equal natural born.
