Well yeah, lol. Even though Cruz hails from the only state in this Union with a brain, texans just can't help but love Trump. I would say it is for his immigration policy concerning the Wall.

Actually Texas is one of the only places Trump is losing in. He's second place to Cruz by 7 points http://www.realclearpolitics.com...

Is good for all nominees to win. I hope not Trump and not Cruz.

He's been in 1st in the state for a month now. Its his home state and he won in Iowa, meaning he has a victory to show off and can show it off to the home-field crowd. Cruz will take First, Trump will settle for second. What remains to be seen is how far behind Rubio winds up in third.

I don't buy the shift in polling because he continued to increase the "lead" after three huge wins for Trump. And what did Rubio do that led him to make gains while he decreased nationwide? I'm calling BS on all of that.

When Trump was leading in Texas Carson was at 18% just behind Cruz. Fiorina and Huckabee were at 5% and 3% at the same time. Then Carson dropped and Cruz spiked a week before January, and then again when other religious candidates dropped out.

And what did Rubio do that led him to make gains while he decreased nationwide? I'm calling BS on all of that.

He outlasted Jeb and Christie is what he did. Rubio and Jeb were tied at 8%. Now that Jeb is out Rubio has climbed up to 18, an increase of ten which is the exact combined polling percentage that Jeb and Christie had in the state before they dropped out.

Its all in the polling http://www.realclearpolitics.com...

Nobody hope on Kasich in this message ??

Kasich is dead in the water. He managed to outlast Bush and Christie which in itself defied expectations, but Rubio is still in it now has the full backing of the 'establishment' vote, and also better poll results than what Kasich has been delivering. Rubio only once finished outside the top 4, Kasich has only ever once finished inside the top 4

And when Jeb dropepd out after South Carolina, Kasich made gains for an amazing(?) poor showing and the two combined just made up an extra magical few points?

There were way too many points going to Kasich for Rubio to be feeding off of the drop-out.

Unpolished opening by Trump, but I think he really nailed the populist buzz.

Cruz acted like a supreme politician.
