Here comes Cruz

Ted Cruz has the lead in the latest Iowa poll.
And will be getting notice headed into Tuesday's debate.
Es­sen­tially, he matches Trump tit-for-tat on most every con­ser­vat­ive idea­lo­gic­al mark­er. But un­like Trump, Cruz is ut­terly and com­pletely de­voted to a pur­ist, con­ser­vat­ive cause. And his abil­ity to mask zealotry with polit­ic­al rhet­or­ic renders him an ex­po­nen­tially more po­tent can­did­ate.

The poll is not as big a thing as some may hope.

The DMR has an axe to grind against The Donald and has been known to go after Conservatives. Pumping Cruz to spite Trump is entirely possible, given this is a Bloomberg-commissioned poll and has a MOE of 4.9.

Caveat emptor.
