A recent poll of “400 Republican caucus goer” saw Ted Cruz jump ahead by 21 points according to Conservative Treehouse. That puts Cruz at 31% and marks the “largest and fastest rise in the history of Iowa Caucus polling. ” His closest competitor is Trump at 21% with Carson at 13% followed by Rubio at 10%. The rest of the field fell away at 6% and below.
What’s to like about Ted Cruz? In my opinion he would bring several important attitudes and skills to the office.
The first is his knowledge of the Constitution. Perhaps because of his fathers experience in Cuba Cruz developed an interest in the US Constitution as a teen and memorized it in full. He then spent years studying the Constitution and after becoming a lawyer spent years in a Texas law firm where he wrote “80 U.S. Supreme Court briefs and argued 43 oral arguments, including nine before the U.S. Supreme Court.” He also served as the Texas Solicitor General where he successfully argued several landmark cases before the Supreme Court.

Ted Cruz will speak clearly without the bluster and ego of Trump. I’m 95% sure he’s my guy.
