Cruz supporters will point to Trump saying he loves the uneducated voters; he followed that with they are the smartest and most loyal. He was using a phrase brought on by erroneous surveys claiming his voting base was mostly under and uneducated individuals — that poll created by the mainstream media.
I’m trying to see his plan to win the general election. So far it’s drive away 30% of the party that has consistently voted Republican over decades, get 30% of conservatives to vote and lose another 30% of conservatives who can’t stand the guy who will vote Hillary as they did with Obama and make damned sure that a moderate Democrat could not even begin to cross the aisle to vote for him.

“Donald has done well in the southeastern states. He has had a good base of support. We’ve done well as well, we’ve been typically second in each of those states, and we’ve racked up delegates. Now Donald has a harder problem in the west, it’s interesting, his location he does well in the southeast. He does well with a certain demographic of voter. Donald gave a press conference where he said, to quote him, ‘I love the poorly educated.’ Listen, part of it is I think Donald is taking advantage of his voters because I understand what they’re angry about, but Donald if you’re angry at the corruption of Washington, you don’t solve it by supporting someone who has been enmeshed in the Washington corruption for forty years.”
“Listen, Donald does well with voters who have relatively low information, who are not that engaged and who are angry and they see him as an angry voice. Where we are beating him is when voters’ get more engaged and they get more informed. When they inform themselves, they realize his record. He’s what they’re angry at. He is the corruption, and if you want someone to stand up to Washington, the only one who has been doing so in this race is me.”

So where are you at on this statement by Cruz? Does this cement your support for him or does it change your view? I want you all to add your comments below as I want to see what you think about this. I think it was a huge mistake, and I think he should apologize, but that’s probably not going to happen.
