Ted Cruz’s final push in Iowa includes voter intimidation, cries for financial help, and now, a full-on call for prayer to “awaken the body of Christ.”
The Texas Senator who is seeking the GOP presidential nomination is pulling out every card possible to appeal to voters in the state that has swung for evangelical candidates in the past.
The reason for Cruz’s desperate acts are clear in that the Iowa Caucus is a “must win” for the Canadian-born candidate.
Fellow evangelicals Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum have won the caucus in the past.
If Ted Cruz is unable to carry the state, his chances in New Hampshire go from bad to worse while the next primary in South Carolina will likely follow the winner’s circle in the earlier states.
Cruz and his SuperPACs have spent $34 million of donor’s money as of December 31st of 2015.
According to the latest poll by Quinnipiac, billionaire Donald Trump holds a seven-point advantage over the Texas senator.
Cruz held a small lead over Trump through December but dropped in the first week of January after the candidate decided to spar with the author of The Art of the Deal.
On January 6th, Trump brought down the hammer on Cruz and made an issue of his foreign birth. Ted Cruz, who was born in Canada to an American mother, may not be constitutionally eligible to be President of the United States.
On January 7th, Cruz’s polling numbers took a sharp dive in Iowa, going from 31.8% to 23.9% . . . where they stand today.
Despite Cruz laughing off the challenge to his eligibility, it’s clear voters are taking it seriously.
Placing religion above issues in the decision-making process of Iowa’s caucus goers, the candidate ended his rally in Iowa with a distracting appeal for prayer.
