Here, in a sound bite, is my forecast for the remainder of the Republican race.
Cruz is now a solid number two behind Trump, and from here on he won’t be sharing the limelight with 6, 7, 8 Republican losers. And imagine, all this comes about with the media trying to ignore Cruz or position him as a non-factor. Now they'll have no choice but to cover Cruz generously. Increased visibility will gain Cruz even more support as people have a chance to focus on him and size him up. Then there is the party which is desperate to stop Trump. They will soon turn to Cruz and Rubio to form a joint ticket to stop him. And Cruz will be in a position to hold out for the #1 slot.
And that in a few words is how America can save itself.
