    Ron Paul is a creationist, that's insanity. I'm assuming that Rand is the same, although if I'm wrong, I apologize, I haven't seen him say otherwise. Ted Cruz's father is a fundamentalist minister who has spoken out for utter religious insanity. I assume, again if I'm wrong, I apologizes, that Ted holds similar views. No matter what "common sense" views you think they might otherwise hold, when it comes to religion, both are, so far as we know, out of their minds.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

I think Cruz is extreme, I think he is irresponsible, and I think he is not competent for the Presidency.

    Rand Paul. The Republicans really need to change sails for good.

    It's a sad day where people in America seem to hate the best choice for President (Ted Cruz) but glorify the worst choice for President (Hillary Clinton).

    It's alright. You will all see the truth.

    Ted Cruz is like the most responsible person for the Presidency. He stands up to the corrupt Washington elite that people are so tired of. And he defends freedom.

    If you don't want to vote or if you want to make a really destructive vote - that's your choice. But if you love America, you will vote for Ted Cruz. But if not, he would still win anyway with or without your vote. But with it you would be making the best choice.

    It all depends on one's own political view does it not? Which candidate one views as best for the country from their own perspective. If the choice came down between Cruz and Clinton, I would probably do what I did in 2012. I would vote for a third party candidate as in my own perspective, who ever won would be very bad for the country. I refuse to limit my self to the two major parties when voting, especially when I view both candidates offered bad. Even voting to the least worst candidate among the two parties still would leave this nation with a bad president.

    So if one of the third party candidates in my opinion is a better candidate than either the Republican or Democrat, I'll vote for them. I refuse to help elect a bad president.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Ted Cruz is a know-nothing jackass.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    I think Ted Cruz has virtually no chance of becoming President. He panders to the lowest common denominator and has shown extreme irresponsibility by his reckless political showmanship over things like the Debt Ceiling and Obamacare which by the way managed to sabotage more adroit efforts at reform/delay that were being orchestrated by people like Paul and McConnell. He is irresponsible and not competent to be President. I won't vote for someone just because they have an R next to their name and I wont vote for Cruz. However popular he may be among the 'conservative' wing of our party (I refuse to grant them that label) many of us won't vote for him. If he somehow manages to become the nominee (he won't) he will be crushed in the general as he deserves to be. I'd rather not embarrass our party label even more by bringing that clown up to the ticket.

    I don't want to vote for Clinton but if Cruz was the nominee I would consider it.

    Thanks for the numbers. I'm not much of an electoral prognosticator but I know that things will change dramatically over the next few years as we get towards the election, and that as many have explained to me the dynamic in the Republican Primary with the big cache of votes in states like California, New York, Pennsylvania, etc favors a well funded establishment candidate who can get out of the early states. I think there are more than a few on that list who would fall under that umbrella. For example if it came down to Paul and Cruz even though I'm skeptical of Paul I'd open my wallet to see him beat Cruz.
