They can't get anyone outside their base to vote for them and it's doubtful that their base will too. And no, they base isn't 50%+1 of the total voters so you need to get the independents and the center leaning democrats.
    Just your opinion, and it is irrelevent to me. You have provided anything convince, except calling him dumbo.

    Btw, I tapped on to a thread about Ted Cruz.
    If Dems could be so lucky .
    Even polls of experts hand picked by libertarians have found FDR to be one of three GREAT presidents.

    Yeah, why nominate a conservative like Cruz? We're doing so well with the moderates!
    in today's GOP REagan would be a RINO

    It's interesting how the RLC could even consider Mr. Cruz.
    After all, his father was born in Cuba although his mother was born in the US.
    This would make him ineligible to run for president; much like the criticism heaped on candidate Obama.
    Did anyone ask for Mr. Cruz' birth certificate? No? Why am I not surprised?
