Cruz and Rubio tag teamed Donald Trump in the Texas Republican Debate, but came across like two little desperate chihuahuas yipping at the feet of a giant. The latest polls illustrate why Cruz and Rubio had no choice but to “go nuclear” on Trump:
Trump is blowing Rubio out of the water in Florida. If Trump beats Rubio in winner-take-all Florida on March 15, it is curtains for his campaign.
The Bloomberg poll of the Southern Super Tuesday states released this evening shows Trump with a 17 point lead in the region.
Virginia, Georgia, and Florida are looking uglier by the day.
It’s not looking much better elsewhere.
Even if Cruz pulls out of a victory in Texas, he is dead in the water if Trump sweeps the rest of the South on Super Tuesday. Rubio had a shot in Virginia which appears to be fading. He might eke out a victory in Minnesota, but where does he go from there?
Trump could spot Rubio or Cruz a 5 point post-debate bump and it wouldn’t make the slightest difference in the outcome of this race.
